Nitty Gritty Dirty Grief

Sweet Girl

We unexpectedly, tragically, lost our sweet girl today…..

She has worked so hard.

And her little heart decided enough was enough….

She took one deep breath this morning…

And that was her last.

We are lost.

I am lost.

I miss how she smells.

I miss her.

For the rest of my life.

*** We will post details on services.

  9. I'm thinking of you. I'm glad you had the experience of having Samantha in your life. She made your life richer and fuller in more ways than you can possibly count. Many people came to the service and celebration of her life and you had a wonderful day for it, but now today, as the rain falls, I feel for you, and know you are lonely and feel lost. Take courage and feel all the feelings…let them come and count it all joy to know life this deeply. Lori Nunnally, from your memoir group.


  10. I met you Heather at the Epilepsy Support Group many months ago and saw Sam's passing in the paper…I have thought of you ever since, and just now went in to read your stories. I was so deeply touched by your optimism, honesty, and love. My heart goes out to you and your family. Words don't seem adequate right now…our children are so very precious…and I am so sorry.


  11. I figured out how to view your archives and have been crying as I worked my way backwards. I can't think of a single intelligent thing to say. I'm so sorry that Samantha is gone.
