Its been 10 years since the phone stopped ringing at 2 am, (she could never get the time difference right) and its been so long! My dear siste, so long

I have no words
To spend here
Tonight
Is neutral
On my knee
The pad looks
Impassively
On
Just like the rest
Of the Universe
I reflect with O'Casey
"What is the Stars?"
The stars
Are
indifferent

Thank you all. I still don't know how I do. I just do... go on. Does it get easier? I can't answer that yet. I feel less dysfunctional, more able to cope with memories and out of the blue reminders. But I don't know if it is easier.

The title of this thread is Mudcatter Fin. Did Fin post here on Mudcat? Might be nice to have a link to her posts on this thread so people can get to know her?

She'd have bloody killed him for saying she was in her sixties though.........especially as she wasn't, she never did reach 60, her 60th birthday would have been 10 days after she died. My mother has always been convinced that she did that deliberately *G*.

I miss her every single day, glad she was in my life every single day too.

VT, huge hugs, I couldn't begin to think how to go on if I lost either of my kids.

Dear Micca, so much a part of my life these past years and beyond. Much love and hugs to you, darlin' and to Fin for being who she was to you, esp.

VTam, I am grateful you have been sharing more with us about Andie and that it seems to be helping. You have lived through what every parent fears and your sorrow is great. May it hold true that sorrow shared is halved; joy shared doubled. From what you have said about her, I think Andie would like that you look for the joy and have found some on Mudcat.

It turns into a different kind of pain, it doesn't get better. It is like the difference between toothache and chronic pain. You can live with it, but it is there, and it has changed you. A friend who paints says that it is like a canvas -- the original is white, but the additional layers on top of it influence all the subsequent layers. These kinds of deaths are like that. Perhaps it is why Rembrandt's paintings are the epitome of human experience -- lots of layers of loss -- but the glow on the top is often even more powerful because of that.

yours,

Peter T.

my Deep appreciation and thanks to you all who have posted,
Sins, maybe at least part of why I am like I am is Because I had Fin as my sister!!!
Funny I was very strongly reminded of Fin Yesterday on the bus,I heard a broad Belfast accent. Fin was an absolute unconcious "accent mimic" so if she spent an evening with her friend Jeanette she came home speaking as if she had lived "on the Falls or the Shankill" all her life!! and was always surprised if my mother asked her "how is Jeanette?" she would reply in amazement, "How do you know I saw Jeanette?" Its the memories....

Ya' know it just never does get much easier. No matter what the circumstance it is always tough at first but after awhile you almost get used to a gnawing kind of pain. Sadly, at least in my experience, it never leaves. No matter how many wonderful memories overflow my heart, that gnawing, slow, kind of pain is still there. I've come to think that perhaps it should be as it makes the memories even better.

The other day I was talking to my "Second Mom".........Her name is Margaret. Her husband Joe and my Dad were best friends from earliest childhood and as it often happens, they married at about the same time after the war. Neither of the girls knew the other at the time but Marg and my Mom (Margie) became close friends and the couples spent many good times together. Their son Mark was born just a few months before me and we grew up together, best friends for many years too until we moved to Columbus. Even then the families stayed very close and spent much time together. Margie and Marg often wrote long letters back and forth ........small town America at its best.

Margie died in '67 and my Dad in '73. Joe passed on in '87. Marg has had some health problems and just last week moved into a retirement community close to her daughter after 60 years in the same home. I called the other day just to wish her well in the new place and to let her know I'd be down soon to check it out. We laughed and talked for awhile and I knew it was so very hard for her to leave the house back home but it had just become too much. We talked of all the "stuff" that she had to get rid of as well as what she kept and what her girls (both great daughters) had taken. Towards the end of the hour long talk she dropped this bomb which she had never mentioned before:

"Pat, I have all the letters Margie wrote to me."

I was astonished and lump immediately came into my throat. You see, I have almost nothing of my parents or my childhood owing to a fire in a storage unit while I was in a job where I moved often back 25 years ago. Marg had shared some pictures and things with me but never before had she mentioned these letters. She continued:

"I thought you might like to have them and I think Karen would really enjoy them and give her some insight into your Mom."

Karen obviously never knew my Mom but Marg was nuts for her right away and I oft told Karen that knowing Marg is much like knowing Margie and if Marg liked her as she obviously did (and does), she'd have been a big hit with my Mom too. I was so pleased that Marg had kept these letters for so many years that I was almost without words to express my thanks. Then she said what made me think of this and why I bothered to post it today.

"I like to take them out and read them sometimes when I get sad. They make me remember how much fun Margie was and all the good times we had together back then."

It took a few minutes but I finally quit blubbering. I guess the pain is never completely gone for those we love but it gets better and can make the memories even finer.

Micca........Terri.........Best to you both.

Pat

5 years on and things still changing
3 more deaths as well to mourn
With the cycles slowly rolling
Marriage, death, and being born
Maybe change will soon be coming
gain an enemy, Lose a friend
As we learn to cut our losses
Bringing some things to an end
when bad things have ceased to happen
And we move forward at last
from the silence of lost voices
And the echoes of the past
Life is change, and ever changing
Merry meet and merry part
Those removed still live inside us
In that place within the heart
