Jos said...

Renee I'm so very sorry for your loss dear heart. Daisy now walks on that beach with Sheldon and your Dad. I bet it was some homecoming for her to see all those she's loved who've gone before. So now she has peace and joy, whilst you grieve. Pain and grief are hard enough to bear separately but together like this must feel unbearable.

Renee I hope you are getting more help with the pain, the nutrition and hydration. I hope you are getting some rest.

Where is hope in the face of such things as all this? Hope lies in the fact that you will see Daisy again ... we will all meet one of these fine days. Mortal life is a blink in infinity. Life is glorious ... imagine eternal life then?? What fun we'll have Renee.

And what a remarkably beautiful picture you've chosen to mark Daisy's passing from this life to the next.

I love you. xx

Karin Bartimole said...

My heart is with you Renee, I am sorry for your loss. Your mother is now in the arms of your dad and Sheldon, and her long lost friends. Though she is far from alone, I know she will be deeply missed. May your best of memories bring joy to your heart and a smile to your face. I love you, Karin

Renee, I am so sorry for your loss. I know the passing of your Mom hits you all so hard. She seemed to me to be the rock that you all leaned on. What a great Mom - to be there for all her kids the way she was. I have smiled so many times reading about her interactions with you and your siblings. They don't make them like that any more. Much love to you, my dear friend. xoxoxox Pam

Deborah said...

Oh Renee, feel my arms around you, gathering you in, lifting you up to God...where your Mother sits at the feet of Jesus, breathing breathing, washing His feet with her tears of joy...He whispers to her, Well done My faithful servant, handmaiden of The Lord.

Life everlasting. It is the very truth of God. Tonight she will be seated at The Table of The Lord.

Sending you all of my love upon the wings of a desert sparrow.
Love, Deb

Marion said...

I'm sure there's a great reunion in Heaven today with Sheldon and your beautiful Mom. I'm so sorry for your loss, Renee. I'm relieved she is no longer suffering on this old earth full of pain. I love you, dear friend. Sending you (((HUGS))) and my prayers.

"Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints." ~Psalm 116:15

"And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away." ~Revelations 21:3,4

karen gerstenberger said...

Renee, I am so sorry for your loss here on earth. We each have only one mother, and yours is obviously a precious gem. I pray for comfort for you and your family. May you feel held in comfort and love - including your mother's love - which we know goes on beyond death.

The image you posted is so beautiful; it reminds me of a vision I had after Katie passed away. The stars, the colors, the gentleness and light-energy were part of it. I believe there is rejoicing in heaven, now, with your mother, father, Sheldon and countless other beloveds reunited.

One day we shall all join them. I love you, Renee.

Sue said...

faerwillow said...

~i have stumbled upon you from sarah at cottage garden studios....my heart is saddened to hear of your mother passing...we in july lost my father in law to cancer...these words i wrote for him and thought i would give and share them with you....

I read this quote the other day....

In the quiet of this day, may you know the greatness of your spirit, may your hopes fly on the wings of possibility....

the possibilities of today, the possibilities of tomorrow and the possibilities of those to come....

PEOPLE COME AND GO IN OUR LIVES
SOME STAY FOR ALL OF OUR DAYS
WHILE OTHERS JUST A SHORT MOMENT IN TIME
BUT THERE ARE THOSE FEW THAT PASS THROUGH AND LEAVE YOU WITH SOMETHING TO HOLD.....
AN IMPACT SO STRONG
MAYBE THAT DAY OR YEARS FROM NOW YOU REALIZE
A LESSON OR THOUGHT THAT CARRIES YOU ON TO A NEW BEGINNING....

may you remember always~

THEY SAY THE ONLY THING THAT CHANGES IS CHANGE ITSELF.....

LIFE CAN BE UNFAIR, UNKIND
&
CAN LEAVE US WITH WORDS UNSPOKEN
&
NOT KNOWING THE WHYS.....


MY ONLY WISH FOR YOU IS THAT........

AS THE DAYS, WEEKS, MONTHS & YEARS GO BY
YOU WILL FIND PEACE WITHIN YOUR HEARTS, MINDS & SOULS....

THAT YOU WILL SEE THE LIGHT THAT SHINES AMONG YOU....

THAT WHEN THE PATH FEELS LIKE THERE IS NO WAY OUT
IT WILL OPEN UP & HE WILL GUIDE YOU ALONG THE WAY......

KEEP DREAMING & HOPING FOR ONLY SWEET DAYS, GRACIOUS THOUGHTS, DELIGHTFUL MEMORIES & LIVE EACH DAY AS A NEW.....

I ONLY KNOW SO MANY OF YOUR MEMORIES,
I CAN ONLY FEEL SO MUCH OF YOUR PAIN......
BUT WE ARE HERE TO SHARE YOUR GRIEF
A TEAR YOU MAY SHED,
A SHOULDER WE CAN BE.......

as my father had said to me long ago.....it is never goodbye but till we meet again.....to you ...there will be a day when we will all walk with you again.... May you rise each day and shine your rays upon us all. May you be our wind that gives us our push to take another step...may you be our star that shines in the night to help guide our way and ease the quietness of dark...

i wish you all and yours all of this...brightest blessings and much strength and love to you this day and always~

Renee...I saw on Sarah's blog about the passing of your mom. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Time does help heal the sorrow and I hope there are wonderful memories for you to cherish and pass along. I do know all the emotions and feelings that come with this. I lost my daddy Jan 2007 and then my mom followed him Feb 2007.

Blessed be...

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Oh Rene Sweetie...
Sarah @ Cottage Garden Studios sent me over. She told me of your Moma's passing. Oh sweetie, I am so sorry. Even when one of our loved ones are ill, it does not make it any easier to let them go.

I believe that when we pass, and we get to heaven, that we each hang a star out in the night sky. That is why our heaven's are so full of them when we look up at night. If you go outside tonight and look up sweetie, the first star you see twinkling will be your Moma telling you, she has arrived and that she will be right there for you every night to talk to her.

I see also that you have some health issues. I will be adding you to my prayer list sweetie, and praying for you not only to get through this hard time with the passing of your sweet Moma, but also for you to get through this rough road you are walking in dealing with your breast cancer.

I hope you don't mind, I have signed up to follow your blog, so that I can pop over and say hi every now and then, and check up on you sweetie.

You are not alone. We bloggers are like family, and we will be praying for you. God Bless You Sweetie...Country hugs, Sherry

My sincere condolences...
I can feel your sorrow and your earlier post brought back my memories of my mother( as you said the person who had the most concern about me)who suffered a lot in her last days with kidney failure and dialysis.I was always around her and it was role reversal but you could feel her guidance even then.It will be 4 years this feb. since she passed away but I miss her a lot.Mothers will always be there to guide us and your mother will be there for you always.
My Prayers are with you and your family.

Laura Hegfield said...

Renee,
I've been a bit under the weather the past few days so have not been visiting with blog friends. I am so, so sorry for your loss. I have not traveled this particular road yet. My Mother and Father are both still here and relatively healthy. So I cannot honestly say I know how you must be feeling. I do not. It is hard for me to imagine. One of my best friends, here at home is in the place you were a few days ago. Her Mother just lingering between earth and heaven...a dear friend, and I do not know what to say to her, and so mostly I just listen. I feel that that is all I have done for you too, reading your blog and I hope that is enough, knowing that others are listening, absorbing a bit of your pain and that that will ease it just a little for you.

Peace to you and your family sweet Renee,
Laura

there are no words to lessen the pain you and your family are experiencing (yet again). It has not been that long since Sheldon went to God's home....

Sending you and your family strngth, prayers and much love.

I pray your pain has lessened - keep your self hydrated..it is important.

LaWatha said...

Renee, you've been on my mind all day- I'm hoping your physical pain is somewhat relieved by now... hopefully they've been able to give you something for your side pain. I'm sorry I don't have the words to express my feelings as eloquently as I'd like- I've never been good at words, and words escape me especially now- they seem so insignificant in the face of all that you've faced this past year and continue to face. I'm so very sorry for your loss... love to you and your family-

Renee, it doesn't feel appropriate to comment on something so profound in this forum but it's the only way I have to reach out and extend my condolences. My heart goes out to you and your family, in sympathy. Kendalee

I heard of your mother's passing. May she rest in peace and you find meaning and peace as well.

I'm sorry, sorry, sorry. We know it will happen some day but still... we're never prepared, are we?

I'm sorry, dear. A hug for you and your family.

I am so truly sorry for your loss dear friend. I have bee remiss in visiting, but took a few minutes to stop in. I know this loss and wish I could ease your pain. So much....

Yes, welcome home.

I'm so sorry, Renee. I know this is a very belated comment, and I apologize.

But know that I'm sending lots of love and warm hugs your way.

Once again, my deepest, most sincere condolences. :(

Bless your soul and your Mama's too! Can you tell me if that is your print? My Mom has terminal cancer and I know it would give her great peace if I could find one of these for her. Get well very soon. (I hope I'm not disturbing you, and that someone is answering this besides you).

God Bless,

Sheila
