Early Morning Grief Therapy Walk

On a morning walk with my wife! We are walking through the journey necessary when a loved one dies. Early Sunday morning Mother passed away at the age of 98 years and 2 weeks. A long and fruitful life!

My mother was a free spirit! At the assisted living home, the hospital, and at the rehab facility, they all enjoyed her humor, and realized that when she spoke, she had no filter! 🙂

As we look into the future I thought the silhouette of my wife was fitting. Also, it is always nice to see wildlife on our morning walks.

Many of you blog followers are great encouragers, and I thought you would like to know what we are walking through.

The last photo, is where I took Mom’s photo from. It was taken with one of our friends, and Mom, at Mom’s sister’s funeral in Kansas! A memorable photo.

Death Comes

Today I ponder death, as we buried my cousin, Gerald. His death left an empty spot, but we all have pleasant memories we will cherish.

Our local cemetery is quite familiar, since my wife and I, walk here often at the break of day!

A family cemetery where my great, great, great, great-grandfather, Jacob Raber was buried south of Charm, Ohio. He emigrated to America from Germany in 1837.

Grief


I lost a cousin last week to an unexpected death! This farmstead is where our Grandfather had lived.  Privileged to be part of the Christ S. Miller family. Pray for us as we walk through our loss this week. Condolences to the immediate family. Gerald Miller, you will be missed.

Wikipedia: Frida (with variants Freda, Freedia, Frieda and Freida) is a feminine given name. In Scandinavian countries, it derives from the Old Norse name Fríða, meaning“beautiful, beloved”. In central and eastern Europe, Frida is a short form of compound names containing the Germanic element fried meaning “peace”.

I always thought my aunt was beautiful and beloved, and with her there was always peace.  I remember attending her wedding when I was 10 years old. Special memories! We always had a lot of fun together.  She liked to tease me! They say, that means she liked me a lot! A special memory was when we traveled together after Thanksgiving of 2015, to see her son’s family in New York, which included seeing a newborn grandchild!

Frieda, rest in peace!
