    Sorry on the loss of your Aunt. I know how you feel as I was very close to one of my Uncles who pass away while I was on my honeymoon. When my mom told me about it, I was devastated. You will be on our thoughts and prayers.

    Reed, I am deeply sorry for your loss and I know how hard it is. I lost my mom 5 years ago when I was 29 and she was my best friend. You should take all the time you need, it is really important that you do that. Try and spend time with your family and after a period of grief, try to sit down and appreciate what you do have still. That is what I do now. Only time will heal this wound. No words or incidents will help you, just time. My deepest sympathies to you and your family.

    Sincerely,

    Please pass on my condolences to Margaret’s husband, Reed. He’ll need you now, more than ever, to help him grieve and heal through sharing your memories, and the laughs and smiles those will bring, as well as the tears.

    Start working with the rest of your family to put together a “memory book” about your Aunt Margaret that can be passed down to Zachery and the rest of the younger generation. It will help give them an idea about what the “good old days” were like, and what a wonderful person Margaret was.

    I understand how you feel Reed because my Aunt Polly was like your Aunt Margaret in my family. She made all the special days twice as wonderful.
    I only had her in my life for a short time as I was the youngest in my family.
    Gather pictures of her and make copies and make “Margaret Albumns” for each of your family so they too can remember the good times with this remarkable person.
    I know it’s a sad time for you right now Reed but you will get past it and given the person she was you will remember with fondness this wonderful lady.
    Just remember people like her do go to a good place after passing away…at least that is what I believe. For me the afterlife is something to which one can look forward.

    Reed, I feel badly for the loss of your beloved Aunt. You will be tempted to try to bury yourself in work to fill the empty pit you feel in your being. Perhaps one way to help is to icentify one quality that made her so special to you; one that you could make a part of who you are, and first, practice making those qualities part of yourself by using them with your wife and new son, and then using them with friends and business acquaintences. In that way, you become a living memorial to your Aunt.

    I didn’t say this well, but I hope I have expressed that I am so very sorry that your Aunt Margaret died. My feelings are with you and your family as you deal with your loss.

    Hi Reed, so sorry for your loss. This is the most difficult part of life. Do take all the time you need to be with your loved ones. Sounds like she was a very special person. I have a daughter who is 43 and she had a massive stroke back in Sept. (way too young to have a massive stroke.) Her right side is paralyzed and her speech is damaged. The brain does have the ability to re-generate itself, but only time will tell, how much of the actual damage will heal. Just another example of how we just never know what life holds for us. She lost a 75k yr job and is, for now, in a wheel chair. We should all live life to its’ fullest while we have the ability to do so. My prayers are with you and your family. Take care and God bless.

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I know it is a difficult time. My Mom died last year on Feb.8 and sometimes it seems like yesterday. I lost my Aunt that I was named after 20 years ago. We were very close. Even though they are not here with me now, I know they touch everything I do in some way. I hope this helps you know you are not alone and that the love you have for your Aunt and the things you learned from her will never die and part of her will always be with you. Maybe you can think of some tangible way to honor her. My prayers are with you and your family.

    Reed,

    Welcome back. We truly missed you.

    My deepest condolence to you and your family for the passing away of your Aunt Margaret. While we always experience the pain of separation when we lose our loved ones, it should not be a reason for us to be sad. We all must face the reality of death.

    There is one very good reason why we should be happy when a loved one passes away. Your aunt has now joined her Creator, and is living in bliss. She is through with the difficulties attendant to her earthly life.

    Just remember that your aunt really never died. She continues to live but a higher plane of existence. What happened was that she left her earthly body, but she continues to live.

    Where is she now? I am sure she is beside you right now. Talk to her, and tell her everything you had wanted to tell her while she was alive, but was not able to. Tell her how much you love. That is an added joy for her as she leaves you.

    Hi Reed,

    As many know, Earth-life is balance. When anyone ‘leaves’ us (graduates from Earth-life), it’s a time to celebrate their graduation – they have completed their mission. On the other side of balance is our inherent sense of loss & therefore a time to mourn. I believe you & your family will find the balance between celebration of Margaret’s life & mourning your sense of loss.

    Margaret’s essence hasn’t gone anywhere – she’s just in a different form & will always be with you & everyone who knows her.

    Radiate Love!

    Reed, It sometimes seems that after we master hitting lifes’ curve balls..she throws us a new pitch and we are left wondering what it is all about anyway. It is easy to get lost in grief and I can see that her best qualities are alive in your work. Your work is her honor and that is a gift to all of us. I wish you peace and I thank-you for your efforts.

    Hi Reed,

    I can relate to your loss; my mother passed away in August. I believe most agree that this is just another another part of life, and my prayers are with you and your family. Be thankful of your memories, for that is what keeps our loved ones with us forever.

    Sincerely,

    Dear Reed,

    My most sincere condolences to you and your family. I sympathize with you – I know how you feel, but I also know that this does not make the pain be less. It’s your very private pain and you should not hide it but express it the way you find it fit.
    It would be good to devote some time for her Memory such a making a Scrap-Book or an other Project in her Memory and give it to other Members of your Family.
    Your aunt’s husband will need a lot of quality time from the Family to slowly accept her death.
    Since you said you were often there, so this is where you would need to spend time and talk about the times you spent together when your aunt was alive.
    There are many Religions who really celebrate Death as if it were a happy event for we do not know where the dead are going.
    It should be a comfort to know that your friends and loved ones sincerely care for you.
    As for your own mortality…, well it’s normal
    that you feel that way in time like this. But you should remember that Birth and Death are not understood and not really known as yet if they ever be.
    Enjoy your life to the fullest in a positive way. Convey your feelings of love and care to the people you care NOW, while they are with you, because we don’t know what tomorrow will bring.
    Don’t grief too long. Your Aunt would not want you to do that – she would not like to see you sad and suffering. And Your Life, has to go on.
    At one time I grieved for my loved-one too long and too deeply that I myself got ill – don’t You do that.
    This post has been too long, but I wanted to ease your pain even if it were just a little.
    Also it may be some comfort to all of us to know that no one gets out of this LIFE alive.

    Hi Reed,

    My heart goes out to you mate at this sad time. I lost my Grandmother whilst on honeymoon in 1990, it was horrible coming back to that kind of news. I now hold on to the fact that she is with me in spirit and I enjoy all the lovely memories.

    Take care

    Hi Reed,

    I know how difficult things are after this kind of loss. Sharlene and I would like to express our deepest sympathy to you and your entire family.

    On November 4, my maternal grandmother (who helped raise me) had a severe stroke and passed away on November 11. This was very difficult, as I was very close to her.

    Then on December 11, one month exactly after her passing, we got a call that my paternal grandmother had passed away.

    Death is something that, although it is inevitable, it is never expected when it happens. It is also difficult to get past, especially if you are close to the friend or relative.

    I’m sure you’ll grieve for quite some time, but remember this…

    After looking through some of the comments on this post, you have a LOT of friends who are sending out a lot of good thoughts and a lot of prayers.

    You are rich, my friend…very rich!

    Our prayers are with you as well.

    Sincerely,

    Scott & Sharlene Raven

    Hi Reed…I am very sorry for the loss of your aunt. She sounded like a wonderful woman. My husband died 3 years ago and I have done a LOT of research on death, what happens, after death, etc.
    DO NOT be afraid about death. It is easier than being born. Know that you never cross over alone. There will always be someone that has passed before you to greet you and guide you. Just as it was for your aunt.
    If there is anything I can help you with now, let me know. This is a very difficult time for you and we can all use a little help. Sending lots of hugs…Brenda

    Hi again Reed..I forgot to mention about your uncle. As much as you are grieving he is 100 fold. He will need his family now. There will be days when he will have a very hard time just to function let alone get anything done. Go to him and if all you do is sit with him in silence and hold him, his hand and if he wants to talk let him. There are no answers to death but he will need to talk. Embrace him closer now than before. Don’t shy away from your emotions but allow them. You are all very fragile right now. Again, I am here if you need help with anything. hugs

    My thoughts are with you on your sad loss.

    I have lost my Mum and my brother within the last two years and I sometimes wonder if I’ll ever be able to live with their loss.

    All I can say is the old cliche that “time heals” – I don’t really know if it heals us but as time goes on we do find ways to cope with the sadness.

    Take care

    Sorry about the Bad News Reed,
    We feel the loss and hope GOD gives
    the family the strength and comfort to
    bear this.
    Life on earth is a journey we all came
    into the world and would certainly leave
    the world,i have heard several people who
    just in the year with a dear Christian
    brother who passed on on new years day while
    everyone was celebrating.

    Certainly we will all die one day but what
    matters is how we have gone in our journey from earth to eternity and what hope we have
    for our life in eternity.
    Dying isn’t a bad thing but its where the soul
    of the departed went to.

    Reed i hope your Aunt is in heaven smiling down to you all.
    So Get Comforted and continue with life.

    I am sorry for your loss. I was close to my grandparents and my mom, and it was hard for me to adjust to it. My mom passed away in October of 2007, so I really haven’t gotten adjusted to her being gone. I wasn’t as close to my dad, but I still loved him. I know my grandparents and my mom are in Heaven, and I will join them one day, but I am afraid that I can’t say that about my dad. I hope that you are saved and will see your loved ones in Heaven too. Take a look at this website: http://www.andeshelp.com/salvation.htm.

    Accept my condolences on the loss of your very special aunt. I was intrigued that you were scared of your own mortality. May I ask the question that if you died as you were reading this, would you know beyond a shadow of a doubt where you would spend eternity? We can know for sure, it will either be heaven or hell, and its whst each person does with Jesus. I don’t want to sound preachy, but if you would like to know more, I would be more than glad to share with you. I am from Minnesota also, a little town of Milan in west central, just nw of Montevideo. Anyway, God bless you and give it some thought.

    I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I lost my father a year ago and it can be hard to take. But then I realized that I had him with all the time now because he is in spirit. anytime I want to talk to him I can and I will even hear him answer me if I am quite and I listen. I had to remind myself that as spirit we live on and there is no real death.

    I hope that helped you.

    Hi Reed,

    I’m very sorry to hear about your Aunt’s passing. I lost my baby brother a couple of years ago. He was only 42. I couldn’t help but notice your comment that says, “it scares me about my own mortality.”

    I know how you feel. I had breast cancer a few years ago and wondered if I was going to live or not.

    Feel free to check out the page I wrote on how to know for sure you can go to heaven when you die at http://www.christian-home-business-help.com/the-gospel.html

    I used to be afraid to die because I didn’t know what was in store for me after death but I’m no longer afraid because I know for sure I’ll live forever and ever in eternity with Jesus in Heaven where there is no more sorry and no more pain. I’ll have a new body and I’ll see all my family and friends again who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Saviour.

    You’re in my prayers,
    Linda
