    In the early days of grief, its rawness makes it feel as though nothing will ever fill the hole left by that person’s passing. As time and acceptance do their work, we come to understand that it isn’t that the hole ever shrinks or goes away but that our hearts grow to encompass all that this person was to us, that we grow as a result of having known them, that loving them leaves us bigger than we otherwise might have been. And although we might never quite get over that feeling of wanting them there in person, nothing can take them away from their place inside of us. So wise words, Wendy: Paula will indeed be in your heart forever. xo

    Tui said it much more eloquently than I ever could. You have been very much in my heart these past few weeks. I hope that time will bring you healing and peace, and that you may long enjoy the fond memories of the times you and Paula spent together. xoxo

    Wendy, I’m so sorry to hear this. I know how much you loved her and how much you will miss her. My heart is with you in your grief.

    So sorry for your loss.

  1. Oh, Wendy, I am so so sorry for your loss. I know you must be heartbroken.

    Wendy, I will admit that I had wondered a bit. Oh I am so, so sorry. You are in my thoughts and in my prayers and in my heart. I know how much you loved Paula and supported her and her family through her illness. Sigh. She’ll always be with you. She will. I think of my sister every single day. And am so grateful that we had good times together before her time on this earth was done. But I miss her…always. Biggest hugs to you – thinking of you – so sorrowful – indeed a loss too big. You take care, Wendy. And know that you are loved.

  2. My heart hurts for you, Wendy. I don’t have a sister, but I do have three brothers, as well as sisters-in-laws. I’m especially close to a couple of them and would be lost without their presence in my life. We don’t get over the death of a loved one, do we? All we can do is keep them in our hears and minds and say their name. Hugs to you!

  3. Oh Wendy, my heartfelt condolences. I can’t imagine losing a sister, it’s such a special relationship. love to you and your family,
    Elizabeth

  4. i am so sorry to hear this. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

  5. My most deep felt condolences to you and your family.

  6. My most deepest condolences and virtual hugs to you.

  7. I’m so sorry to hear your news. I can’t imagine what you’re going through right now, but I just wanted to let you know that my thoughts are with you ((HUGS))

    I did not know. I am so very sorry. I cannot think of anything adequate to say except please know we are thinking of you.

  8. I’m so sorry, Wendy. Sending prayers…

  9. Keeping you in my prayers. I am so sorry about the loss of your beloved sister.
