Dearest Suki,

I, too, remember when your brother was in Chile and you did not hear from him for a few days! That was hard.

Like everyone else here, I also hope you can find peace and love in the coming days, months and years! I send you a big hug as you work through all of this, my friend! As always, you are surrounded with love!

Oh Suki!
I am very sorry for your loss.
We're currently going through the loss of a brother also, so I truly understand where you are.

My prayers are that God will give you all the strength and peace that you need.

Katiejane said...

Oh Suki, I'm so sorry for you. I did not know about your brother being in Chile but he does look dashing in that hat. I see some resemblance to you. Wishing you strength and courage in your future.

To lose a sibling - those precious people who shared your childhood, and one younger than you just doesn't seem right. I try to imagine myself in your place and find that very painful.
Thinking of you, Suki, and offering my deepest sympathy.
Arohanui (big love) and kia kaha (be strong), Lesley.

louciao said...

I'm sorry for dropping in here with a remark that is not related to your sad loss, but I have to ask you to please e-mail me your postal address so that I can send you your card. I know I had it once as I did send you some cloth for the well, but apparently I didn't keep it. Thanks.

ZenDotStudio said...

prayers to you both.

soulbrush said...

Condolence. I know what you feel. I also lost a loved one just recently and still grieving. Just think that they are at peace and with our creator. They are now happy and free.

So very very sorry. Only found your blog recently and feel kind of intrusive posting about this, but sending all best wishes to you and your family at this sad time. x
