Dear Kent, Kendra, Katie, Hannah, Karen, Jeff, Rob and all of the Family,, I am so very sorry to hear about Jill. Rob left me a message last night to let me know. I wish I knew sooner so I could be with you all today. I have so many fond memories of Jill at family events at Grandma Creighton's, Aunt Floss and Uncle Ron's and Bass Lake. Our families sure had a lot of great times together growing up and we have so much to be grateful for. I feel so badly for your loss. I know how difficult this is. Please just know that I am thinking of you, and wish for you that the many cherished memories of Jill will help to soothe those times when her absence is hard to take and bring you comfort you in the days, weeks and years ahead. A special hug goes out to Kendra and Hannah, too.....I just heard:- With deepest sympathy, love and caring, Deb Creighton-Kukulski The following sentiments were sent to me when we lost my Father recently. I have read them over many times and I hope they also bring you some comfort and peace at this very sad time: I am standing upon the seashore. A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength. I stand and watch her until at length she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky come to mingle with each other. Then someone at my side says: There, she is gone! Gone where? Gone from my sight. That is all. She is just as large in mast and hull and spar as she was when she left my side and she is just as able to bear her load of living freight to her destined port. Her diminished size is in me, not in her. And just at the moment when someone at my side says: There, she is gone! there are other eyes watching her coming, and other voices ready to take up the glad shout: Here she comes! And that is dying. ************* At the rising of the sun and at its going down, We remember them. At the blowing of the wind and in the chill of winter, We remember them. At the opening of the buds and the rebirth of spring, We remember them. At the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of summer, We remember them. At the rustling of the leaves and in the beauty of autumn, We remember them. At the beginning of the year and when it ends, We remember them. When we are weary and in need of strength, We remember them. When we are lost and sick at heart, We remember them. When we have decisions that are difficult to make, We remember them. When we have achievements that are based on their's, We remember them. As long as we live, they too will live, for they are a part of us. **************** A MESSAGE OF SYMPATHY AND HOPE When somebody dies, a cloud turns into an angel and flies up to tell God to put another flower on a pillow. A bird gives the message back to the world and sings a silent prayer that makes the rain cry. People disappear, but they never really go away. The spirits up there put the sun to bed, wake up the grass, and spin the earth in dizzy circles. Sometimes you can see them dancing in a cloud during the daytime when they're supposed to be sleeping. They paint the rainbows and also the sunsets and make waves splash and tug at the tide. They toss shooting stars and listen to wishes. And when they sing windsongs, they whisper to us, Don't miss me too much. The view is nice, and I'm doing just fine. ~ Ashley Rice ~
