Onward but never alone

I was at liturgy at the monastery for

St. Nicholas Day.

This was a blessing.


I was aware of feeling really sad as my

Oma has died,

passed on from life to life...


I go with family to Brampton today

visitation tonight

and funeral tomorrow afternoon

and then a long drive back.


Thank you all for your prayers

and love and encouragement

in this.


Grief is always sudden, unexpected

and a hard road to navigate.

Thank God that we do not go the road alone.

I'm sorry to hear that. We could all tell how much you love her just by reading your blog. Memory eternal to your Oma.

I hope the funeral is a comfort to you. Christ is Risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and on those in the tombs bestowing Life!

I don't think I can say it any better than Sarah did. May your Oma's memory be eternal.
