Hi Joanne
I was visiting ARMYBRATGIRL's site as I often do, to pay repect to her loved ones, as she does for me.

I came across your note to your partner and I just wanted to give me sincere condolences and sysmpathies to you and yours.

I am an active duty cop, and have made many friends on this site, for the common and collective reasons of consoling one another and remembering our loved ones so they are never ever forgotten.

Most of us have lost somebody dear and it is very difficult to sometimes comes to the conclusion of reasons why so, and faith in the lord. I have become friends with folks who have lost their children by acts of violence , illness and accident. I have also lost both parents, my dad when he was 90 and with a full life, and my mom, not so full of a life, passing at age 74 from breast cancer, I found that the fairness factor and my faith was a bit shaken as the doctor had made the slight mistake of removing a benign tumor from one breast and leaving the malignat tumor still within the other breast. It took me years to come to terms to forgive the doctor for killing my mother and another few years to regain my faith in the lord as my mother harmed absolutely nobody in her life and was the epitomy of joy, happiness, righteousness and morality. It mattered not as God evidently needed her company beside him more than I did.

My sister, another God feraring Christian and so remains to this day, met a wondrful man who had been seriously wounded defending our country during Vietnam. My sister had no known moral flaws during her upbringing and caused my folks no grief or distress, something I myself cannot say the same of.

My sister married this wondrful man and thought utopia was hers for the keeping. The Lord again, in his infinite and unquestioning wisdom (not being sarcastic at all, just I have found my love of God and have givn myself over to the salvation of our lord, Jesus Christ. My sister lost the love of her life (from teeanged years) suddenly when Adam passed away at aged 51 from Cancer. He fought like Hades to defeat the scourge, the pain but God did not wish to see himn suffer and called for him earlier than any of us expected.

there was such sadness in my heart when I read your thoughts,despair and pain. I don't mean to intrude on your private thoughts but felt in this very moment that I wanted to share my reflections with you.

You are needed so much on the earth as there are so many that depend and trust your love and friendship. I came to the undertstanding that we can make positve differences to others, sometimes perfect strangers, from what negative things have happened to us. Hence, one of the reasons I come to this site. there are moments, maybe due to my profession, that I have been able to provide some comfort and reasoning of the great things that we still have in us to do.

My apologies to be so bold, but I do feel your pain and am so sorry for your loss. I would be honored if you would consider me friend on this site, I will add you to my friends list also if ok and hope to see you around here. there are many wonderful people that carry on even after tragedy and make positive impacts on others lives May God bless you Your friend, Don
