A terrible Loss.

My Heart is Broken...... Torn and tattered .

The Loss Profound ,

my world is shattered.

The Hole in my Heart will never Heal

My Love for Estrid never leaves 

My Heart My Soul 

My every Thought 

Is with her 

in her in her Lonely 

Haunt.

My tears flow .............I cry.....for Estrid , for me, for my Dear Brother whose life is Broken into a nillion pieces. 

His Love is Gone.

-----------------

I Love You Estrid  RIP XOXO

 

My Brother's young wife , 54 , just dropped dead from a hidden heart defect and my world is shattered . I loved her like a Sister but she was even more to me , she was my friend , my confidante, the Rudder that kept me on an steady course. She helped immensely in my life and the world will be a darker, more lonely place without Estrid to brighten it for us.

I don't know what I will do without her , despair at the unfairness of it. If there is a God someplace out there he/she has one sick sense of humor. Allowing a person to struggle and fight to get their business going , get their life in order and prepare for a comfortable retirement after working ....then when the time has come for taking a break and enjoying lefe and the fruits of their hard labor ....Estrid is snatched away in an instant and our world is changed forever. My poor Brother will never be the same .

 

Please get your Heart checked ,...this is way more common ( Hidden Heart Defects ) than we might think.....your own life may be the one you save.

Thanks for reading , I just had to write something in Estrids memory...A Lovely Gentle Soul is no more.

Thank You Zine. Estrid was a Force of Nature and meant so much to so many people . I had to acknowlege her life. I'm in Ireland so I did not get the chance to say goodbye. and this is the hardest part.

Thanks again Zine.

Thank You B, Not being able to say goodbye is the worst part. San Francisco will never be the same for me on my frequent visits. We have lost a lovely person but she will never be forgotten. 

Thanks again B...Eamon XO

Hello Eamon. I feel so sorry for your loss and offer my sincere condolences. It is often useful to express such strong emotions in verse and yours is much appreciated as it bring back fond memories for me.

Best wishes Bill

Thank You Bill, I have to say that I have never felt such pain in my heart . We used to butt heads in the arly days but I told her not to let things fester...if either one has a problem with the other then lets just sit and chat and fix it . After that we became very close friends . I just wish I could have said goodbye and held her hand to see her on her journey. 

  Estrid was a Donor so several people will have a new healthy life ahead of them because of her kind heart.

Thank You Bill,  Eamon

I understand that your heart(s) hurt and I agree... the timing is ANYTHING but 'fair'. My heart hurts for you and her family. The poem is beautifully written, as is the explaination of Estrid's passing. You will never forget the beauty she brought to your life... hold on to the memories. She is forever in your heart. The fact that she's a donor is a tribute her selflessness... well done Estrid!

Thank you too for the reminder to check our hearts and other health issues. We tend to take too much for granted.

My sincere condolences, Vicki

My heart goes out to you. Such a beautiful tribute. Estrid was fortunate to have such a deep, beautiful soul in her corner. We are here if you need us.  Keep reaching out.  Lorelei

Thank You Vicki, I've been thinking of the fortunate things. When they reached their house in San Francisco my Brother went to park ...when Estrid always did that. If the car had gone out of control on a San Francisco hill many people could have been killed so this is another fortunate situation. When I finally got the whole story it turns out she did not hit her head. She simply fell asleep in a chair and left us , peacefully..this means so much , she had no panic, no fear, no suffering. I think I can live with that. I'm so happy that we did not argue when I saw her last. WHen I left and flew to Ireland she just smiled that lovely smile and gave me a kiss on the cheek...my last and fondest memory of my lovely friend.

Thanks again Vicki. Your responses have really helped me work through this..Xo

Thank You Lorelie , Thank you for your lovely response to my post. The pen hit the page and those words were suddenly on the page. As I said to Vicki we parted with a kiss on the cheek and a big smile the last time I saw her , a few months ago and that will be my memory ...her big wonderful smile and the warm hug . She will be sadly missed by many people who loved her very much. We talked about death many times and she wanted her death to be meaningful so she became a Donor to give life and newfound  health to several lucky people . She lives on in those people.

Thank you again Lorelie....you guys helped a lot.

I am so sorry for your loss! It is unimaginable to lose someone so ingrained in our everyday life! Hugs and Prayers for you and your Brother as you find your way through the grief!

Eamon,   I am SO SORRY for your loss.  There are NO words that can offer comfort when our wounds are so new and raw.  I am glad for you to know that she passed quietly and peacefully.   It is always those of us left behind that suffer the pain of permanent loss.  My heart breaks for your brother in this moment of his horrific loss.  Please try, hard as it is, to stay strong

Peace

Nancy
