    Good Morning,
    I been holding this back long enough & it time to talk to my BOC family about what has been going on with me.
    I have not been on the board as much as I would normally would (other that my Fantasy Football Page) because of some very personal reason. My family & I have been going tough some times lately.
    "About a month ago, my uncle loss his life" - & then about three weeks after that, "my nephew lost his life" & now in a I'm sad to say that, "my mother is in the final days of her life". I haven't felt like this since the passing of "Deltalover"
    I just don't understand why this is all happening to me at the same time.
    :sad2:
    I do understand that there is a beginning & end to life, but I'm just not ready to deal with it - we are never ready to deal with it - but life goes on anyway.
    Well - I just wanted to get that of of my chest this morning & to say that if it wasn't for you guys here at the BOC - I would not have anyone or anything else to do to take my mind off of the things that I'm going though right now.
    So "Thank You All" for being Brothers & Sisters to me when I needed some one to be there.

    Take Care of yourselfs & have a bless day,
    Bert (Shania)

    You will certainly be in my prayers, Bert. I know somewhat how you feel, having lost my mother-in-law and three grandparents all about the same time.

    The timing of death is never right, but nonetheless comes for all. This calls for steadfast faith and understanding that you have your life to live; live it to the fullest, live it well, and leave a lasting legacy. Keep the faith, brother!

    Bert, I am sorry to hear about your losses. I can see where you would feel overwhelmed and lost. One passisng is bad enought but 3 that close together would be hard on anyone. God be with you and your family.
    There isnt alot I can say to make it better for you but I will say this. God has a reason for everything that happens in this world. Those that went on to be with him have fulfilled their duties here on Earth as they were put here for and have moved on to the next level of being in Heaven to be with Him. What a joy that must be for them. We will in time have our turn to be rejoined with our loved ones and all their glory and they will be there to welcome us home. That is what I look forward to. My advice would be not to dwell on the aspect of death here as we know it but to recall the memories and joy we had with our loved ones while we had them here with us and be thankful for the lessons we learned from them and to look ahead with anticipation for the great reunion we will have with them when we get to go home too. I hope some of this helps. My prayers are being sent up for you and your family and all those who have been touched by those you lost.
    Sincerest wishes,
    Leslie

    My prayers for you and yours. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Praise God!

    Thoughts and prayers are with you and family during these truly trying times. No matter how much advanced warning we have, we find that we are never prepared for the Reaper. God will never place more on our shoulders than He is willing to help us bear and you are truly Blessed to have many true friends on the BOC to help be a bridge over your troubled waters in times like these. Keep the Faith!!!
