Today I was getting ready to go to the nursing home to visit my friend Martha when I got a call that she died this a.m. I already had called the NH & learned she'd made it through the night. But she must have died between 8 & 9 a.m. Her son & DIL went there about 9 a.m. to tell her good-bye before driving back to CA, but she had just died. Many details really worked out for them this week, getting her apt. cleared out by the 31st, keys turned in, items donated to a local thrift store, etc. It was a monumental task in a short amount of time. I'm sad she passed so soon, but I know she's with Jesus in Heaven & free of all her pains & medical problems. She had made arrangements to donate her body to medical science. Some time later she will be cremated, then a memorial service will be planned. I'm thankful I got to spend quality time with her this week. She was 87 y.o. & one of the ladies who was a part of our Lady Bugs group. She will be missed, but we rejoice at her Home going.

I am sorry to hear of your friends death. It is good you spent time with her prior. My dad is on hospice and I went up to Jersey to spend time with him while he was still lucid and before the downward spiral. I have another trip planned, but we just dont know when he will be called back to his creator.

Keep all your good friendship memories close to your heart. Sending virtual hugs.

Joy, I'm so sorry to hear of your friend's passing, but as you said, she's with the Lord now. I'm sure her family appreciates what a good friend you were to her, taking her to activities, and spending time with her. You were a blessing to her.

Joy, I am so sorry for the loss of your friend. It's so difficult to lose someone you love, friend or family. We just lost a dear friend of 20 years on Friday. She lost her husband (our friend) 2 months ago and just didn't have any fight left in her for the medical issues she was facing.

I hope you will at least find comfort in knowing your sadness is shared by others here. Your friend is at peace

I feel your pain at losing a good friend. My BFF died on Mother's Day. It is hard to lose a dear friend, but so comforting to know they are in a wonderful place, and we will see them again someday.
