Blue Monday

Join me at  It is supposed to be blue Monday, but the way things are now, it is a black Monday. Not sure how this will all end or when, but trust it improves soon worldwide.

This dear lady shared blue Monday with us for a long time. As of this month, she has been gone four years. Through the blogs, we became friends.  She had a lot of health issues, but seem to maintain a good attitude. Overtime, we started calling and sharing the good and bad days. We were both blessed to have free telephone service. Not in every case, but seems death comes after midnight. I had called late to check on her and her husband said things did look good.  She was very weak, but still insisted on talking to me. It was a heart breaking farewell, as she left us shortly thereafter. My friend, you are still missed.

Dearest LV.,
So sorry for the loss to her husband and to you and many...
Yes, we do make REAL friends here in the blogger world.
I've lost suddenly a dear friend of over 9 years, she had dropped dead at age 61... so suddenly!
In the morning we still had contact and then when I wanted to sent her a message concerning the wedding of her son, wishing them all the best, her daughter replied. That was on Thursday and the wedding of course did not happen. So much sadness and grief.
The world can seem unreal at times but yet, our soul never dies and we are forever close to those that meant a lot to us!
Who knows; they might be able to even mean more for us from where they are - we don't fully grasp it YET.
Stay well and sending you hugs,

I'm thankful that you are still here. Be safe and have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

Four years seems so long ago; yet so near. I remember hearing the news, sigh. Happy to see you posting today LV.

A lovely tribute to her, and now we can actually see a lovely blogger, even though she is gone.
