A chance to say goodbye

Last evening two of my co-workers and I went to the visitation of our dear Johanna.
Seeing her look so at peace was a wonderful closer for us. We had a chance to talk to some of the family members and share laughs and stories about her.It was just a good chance for me to reflect on how Johanna touched all of us at the nursing home
Hearing the family share their thanks for all we did also was nice to hear.
We were all in agreement about how much she enjoyed life and was a wonderful christian and we knew she was happy to be with her loved one again.
I know she will be missed but I now can smile and give thanks for having known her.
The pain is gone and I will probebly fine an other one to get attached to.( I say NO I will not let that happen again but I am sure it will).
Again thanks for all the support and encouraging words I know it is the reason I am doing better this week.
Thanks be to God for he is Great!!!!

I'm glad you could go Brian - that is so good - closure. And now she's lookin' down and praying for you!!! (Ok, Joe would probably say that's not very Biblically correct but who cares, I like it!!!)

Glad to hear you're feeling better and can realize she is in a much better place!
