A FAREWELL LETTER TO A GOOD FRIEND
Your purpose on earth is completed, and you have left the stage that left me behind with agony as my faith has been shattered with grief and sadness.Do I have the strength to stay focused to your teaching that I am receiving? Probably not.I only have a muted sigh amidst the turbulent waves of my desolation.
My pain cannot be tempered ,nor should anyone would , for my pain is your legacy to your children, to your husband ,your family and to me. I doubt if you thought about inflicting such pain but it is there staring to all of us.
The pain has to be experienced by me,your family and all you have left behind for that is a part of your legacy.A part of me dies when the unbearable comes unexpectedly , and it is only in the deepest recesses of my soul that I am able to realize what God sees, and to love as God loves.
I cannot help but to let my grief be expressed even as i struggle to find the strength to overcome the sadness and desolation . Now that you have departed,I would like to sit with you and speak quietly and thank you for being with you all through the years, through the ups and downs , hills and plains ,the laughter and the tears and encourage me to keep on going , knowing that I will find compassion and wisdom from the experience brought upon by your untimely death.In my heart, I know that you and I will meet again and I await that with fervent hope. And when we meet ,we both will know,what now it is not given to us to know: Why you had to go .
Even the most tempered minds can never understand what has happened, but I trust in the dictates of our hearts that if we keep our hearts open to God ,we will know intuitively the reason of HIS plans.
You came through your family ,your children, your husband, your friends and to me to complete your purpose on earth, which includes the manner of your death. Inspite of it, I am happy that now your soul is free, and the love that you can shower us is vulnerable to eternity.
In that perfect love, include me.
My dearest friend, I will always love you.
