In one of the groups I'm in a lady named Mary Rose passed away. She had responded to me by email about a couple of my poems. But she never told me she was sick. I wish I had known. Anyway I wanted to send you the emails that the group owner posted in the group I was in with her. . Please read it all it will bless your heart. This also contains her last post.
This note was sent to me this morning concerning Mary Rose.
Mary Rose was such a blessing to us all.
I sent a note back to her father telling him how sorry we all are for his loss.
She is at peace now. She was to have a different type of Chemo starting today. Gods blessings were with her , so she wouldn't have to endure any more pain.
I had the honor of speaking to her several times and her love for everyone was a wonder to me.
I have saved as many things as I could that she sent me..
I know she is watching over all of us with the love that she showed to everyone.
God Blessed us all for being able to know her.
i promised Mary i would notify you in case of emergency/Mary passed away from stroke sometime before dawn on Sunday morning/she was waked last night and
will be buried today/please respect our family's privacy. - f.l.donovan
THIS WAS HER LAST POST
Thank you so much, my dear friends. I appreciate your kind words and your many prayers. I have had a headache for the past three days...seems nothing will stop it....although the pain medicine does take some of the edge off a bit. I also have noticed a slight weakness of my left side...and numbness around my mouth on the left side. The doctor seems to think I am having slight mini strokes. I do not notice having them...but I have periods of feeling quite foggy from time to time. The doctor says it is from the Chemotherapy...and not to worry. Oh well..we'll see, huh? Lol!
It seems that I am in the autumn of my life. Just as the leaves fall from the trees...so too does my hair fall in bunches every place I go. As the colors of the leaves began fade...so does my memory...seems that I have to work much harder to remember things that once easily came to mind. I seem to be looking back a lot more...remembrance of my childhood when life was carefree...innocent...a time of wonder and magic.
I have become less and less it seems...yet I see myself in all things. I feel as if I am metamorphosing as an insect...the old me dying and growing wings. As my body grows weaker and weaker, my spirit is ever
renewed and grows stronger, longing for sweet release from this pain...to take flight...into the heart of God. I am looking away from this world...away from all pain to the next lifetime, where I will find infinite things to do...to learn...at my Beloved's side.
Love and hugs...Mary Rose
You came to me in the autumn of my years
Like the fragrance of a sweet Rose you came.
Though your gone from us now.
I can feel you near...in the silence.
Yes Mary Rose you are as close to us now.
As our own hearts.
And when we get still and listen.
We can hear you calling to us out of the silence.
Saying...I'm ok now..there's no more pain.
We miss you so Mary Rose.
Princeofdreams October 11. 2006
This morning while thinking about writing something for Mary Rose.
It was all I could do not to cry. I really felt her near me.
I think she came to see who this Princeofdreams is.
Because that's what I felt.
I told her when we meet again I wanna waltz across the milky way with her.
She smiled and said...yessss.
