Florence Carella

Eileen Florence's baby sister

May 1, 2012

If someone is dying and those around them insist they do not die, the person dies in isolation, alone and without the love that can offer such support and such a sense of completion... Truly you can't go through the door with her, but you can accompany her more fully to the threshold.
And that's just we did. She did not die in isolation ..we held her hand and told her it was ok and God took the other hand and brought her home.
Yesterday is gone but will remain etched in our hearts eternally. A sense of closure as we try to pick up the pieces and move forward in life with broken hearts. Thank you again to everyone who participated in some way by either coming, sharing a memory, offering their condolences, prayers and comfort.
Te Amo Florence heart is breaking ... until we meet again my dear sister xoxoxoxo

There are no words to describe the void your passing will have on this world of ours. For our world will be a little darker without your shinning light. I know that heaven needed their angel back and so we must now allow you to go. I'd like to thank God for sharing you with us, even though it was only for a little while. Sleep well, dearest Florence, until we meet again...

I Did Not Die By Mary E Faye

Do not stand at my grave and forever weep.
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and forever cry.
I am not there. I did not die.

~~~My prayers are with you all!
