My thoughts on the death of a special woman

Today my girlfriend, the one whom I’ve known longer than anyone on the planet, except my twin brother and my sister, left this planet. She sleeps, no longer in pain, no longer trapped in her earthly wrap.

I believe in the promise. She is out of pain. She no longer has to endure the humiliation of being unable to speak, or care for her self.

She was the dearest of friends. She came to me when I was divorcing and made me start over.

She rescued me when I could have wound up in serious trouble over depression. I called and she was there – no matter what I needed.

We started out on a mission one day to eat everything we wanted. We started with donuts stuffed our faces all day with tacos and whatever else we wanted…we laughed continuously, and took the day off from regretting the planned binge.

She came to my aid on a mission of true girlfriend loyalty; one I will never share with another human being. She was there for me regardless of her own personal doubts, and never judged me for anything. I doubt that I was that good a friend to her, but she
never asked as much as I did!

I could go on and on about the life we shared, the hundreds of
telephone calls we made, when we talked for hours about family and such.

She made mistakes, but haven’t we all? To this very day, I can say with all my heart. she was TRULY a best friend.

She’ll get a pearl in her crown for fulfilling her life as best as she knew how, and keeping the faith to the end.

She will be missed. How grateful I am to have known the most
personal circumstances and thoughts of your life. How blessed I was
to have you grace my life in so many ways.

But the best and most precious memories are alive and well in my heart and mind, and will be until we meet again for a Holy hug.

Robbie, my friend – I love you now and forever.

    Dear Marsha,
    Have you experienced the fact that life is very short? Usually I feel so. Every moment of our life, what we spent- will never come back, but, when we share it with our friends, we are back to our childhood and so on. You have lost such a friend of yours who could take you back to your childhood. I can understand that grief, as I too have such incidents. Marsha, can we all see a photograph of you both, from your personal albums? Let the great soul of Robbie rest in peace and also be in all our memories, through you. How can I give you solace in this period of grief?

      You are so kind to offer solace, and your kindness is enough to help. I am not home at the moment, but when I return this weekend, I will, indeed, share a couple of photos with you. Life rushes by like the wings of a hummingbird flutter. Each moment must be the best we can create. Blessings to you and your family.
