    Since you are family

    ..and family is a place to let the hair down.

    Sometimes my job is a bit overwhelming. It is always so at times spent with families who are walking a last journey with a loved one. I am a professional and I do try to maintain some distance, but some journeys are much more difficult. Heavy heart tonight as a family I love dearly is preparing to say goodbye to a wife, Mom, and grandmother. Cancer is insidious. We all knew it was coming, but the greeting of it is no less painful when the day arrives.

    Please keep your good thoughts and prayers for those making a last journey and for those of us who walk with them. Thanks for letting me say this, friends. As usual, you are the best and I am so glad you are my family.

    Some say the land of milk and honey; others say the land of fruits and nuts. All together my sort of heaven.

    Power is not taken. It is given. Who have you given yours to? Hmmmm?

    Since you are family

    May god give you the strength to help this family in their time of difficulty.

    Prayers for strength to help the family in need. Personally I don't know how you sustain the level of caring and compassion necessary for your
    profession. I know it takes a special person to endure. You are that special person. The grieving family do appreciate the support.

    I went through that with both my Mother and Father. The great blessing was I had time to thank both of them for all they had done for me, all the love they had given and to let them know how much I loved them. Nothing was left unsaid. My wife's Mother died quickly in the night and I still hear my wife saying she wishes she could have said something or done something that she did not get the chance to.

    My thoughts and prayers for the family.

    Live every day like it's your last, but don't forget to stop and smell the roses.
