My Sister is finally at peace ,and in Heaven

Thursday, April 15, 2010

My younger Sister passed away on Fri.
She left a deep hole in my heart , but many wonderful memories to help me , and the rest of the family .

We were blessed she was with us a year longer than the Dr. had said, so I am grateful for that.

It was very peaceful and I thank God for that.

I also want to thank all my Spark friends for all the prayers, during her illness, that gave me a lot of strength and hope.

Now I can rest easier and get on with life.

Thank you all ......
Spark People are wonderful

    Hi Kooch,

Haven't been in to Sparks for some time. So so sorry to hear that your dear sister passed away. May the Lord have mercy on her soul. I didn't know anything about it until I read your blog. Please accept my deepest sympathy Kooch. I hope you are keeping well yourself and have come to terms with your sister's death. You have no regrets anyway as you were very good to her. She will take care of you now in Heaven.

My Nephew passed away in August. He was only 32. He was battling for years and was doing great and was hoping to get a lung transplant but it wasn't to be.

Take care of yourself and hope to chat again soon!

Love from
Your friend
Bea

Tomorrow I will be having surgery, a spinal fusion, IT WILL BE AN ADVENTURE.
I sure will miss being on sparks everyday, and am hoping to be back home in 3 days, if all goes well.
I will miss my Spark friends.
Hoping to be back soon.
I am taking my angels with me, for good luck.
Everyone take care and stay healthy!

wt. loss

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

I weighed in at the Doctors office yesterday and was amazed to find I have lost 5 pounds.

It,s working , because, I keep working it. I hit a plateau and wasn,t losing a drop for a while,

now I feel so much more encouragement to keep it up.

My pants were starting to get tight, and I hate weighing in, I can always tell from my clothes.

Gave some to the goodwill, now may have to go back and re purchase them.

I have been under a lot of stress lately, like many of us, and have to force myself to eat

everyday, so I am pleased and will try harder to keep it up.

    Hi Kooch,

I ran across an entry under A-Z boys names. Thought I'd visit your SparkPage as I also have a poodle, actually a Yorkie Poo mix. He helps me get thru some difficult challenges life has thrown my way. Sorry to hear about your sister's illness. Prayers and well wishes to you and your family. I have lots of family scattered throughout Wisconsin and your page caught my eye. Athens (near Wausau), Boulder Lake, Minoqua, Menomonee Falls, Milwaukee just to name a few.
