A good friend of many years and my hairdresser has had a very trying month of September. It seems that if it could go wrong, it did go wrong! To culminate an already trying month on various levels, my friend then experienced the onset of a severe bout of medical issues with her mother, and finally lost her to her illnesses. Losing anyone close to you is a difficult thing, but we realized in losing my husband's mother during this year after numerous falls, concussions, and broken bones that this particular death is very harsh. I want my friend know that I am thinking about her, keeping her in my prayers, and truly understand her sorrow. The only thing one can know is that your loved one is no longer in pain and in a better and more peaceful place. Below is the card I am sending to my good friend with heartfelt sympathy.
