  1. My condolences!! Loss is definitely the hardest part of life. I hope you find peace in the midst of your rage!

  2. Dear Gilly,
    Healing takes places in layers. We are not healed, instantly. Healing takes time. Memories keep those we love close forever. They will be in your heart today and for evermore.
    Sometimes, the sweetest memories shine through the deepest sadness …
    “With Deepest Sympathy”
    Issy ❤️

  3. So very sorry to learn of your loss. It must be hard not to have seen your sister in her last days. This won’t be an easy time. Accept all the help and comfort you are offered. Thinking of you x

  4. Oh, Gilly, I’m so very sorry to read this post…. Sending you my deepest sympathy, and I hope you have people close to you that can comfort you. xx

  5. Joining the others, I am so sorry No one wants to receive news like that with no warning. Thank you for sharing her story, and for opening your heart and being candid with how your are feelling. It must feel as if the scripts got mixed up;

    The butterfly was a beautiful gift, and the story touches all of us.

    You might find comfort in a documentary on Youtube about Laura Byrne, the lady who sees angels.

  6. So sorry to hear about this Gilly, your sister was very young, it is hard to lose someone when they have not had chance to live their lives to the full. Thinking of you. Take care of yourself and try to think of the happy memories you have of her.

  7. Oh, Gilly. I’m so sorry. Losing a sister is unspeakable pain, and so young. Always too the regrets. You farewell her beautifully with this post, and the butterfly is a lesson for us all. Hugs and love to you in your grief.

  8. I feel your pain, and wish I could give you a big HUG. My baby brother (he’s 71) lives the opposite side of Australia to me and is having palliative care. He’s on Oxygen full time now , confined to bed, I dread each time the phone rings. Gilly be thankful you got to know your sister and know you will have happy memories to keep alive in your heart.

  9. I am keeping you in my heart as you mourn the loss of your dear sister. Having barely looked at any blogs since I’m away, I opened your’s first today and found this important message about life and how fleeting it is. Love to you, Gilly

  10. I am so saddened to hear of the loss of your dear sister, Gilly. My sincere condolences. No words can be adequate at this time in your life. All I can say is that it is well. She is at rest and she died in the most beautiful way possible, in a most relevant way possible for a Christian who believes in
    God. And despite her pain she must have gone through, Gilly, that is the most important thing she could ever do, to go to her maker with praises on her lips. So please my dear friend, please, be angry but not for long, because I am sure she would want you to be hapy for her as she is happy in heaven I am sure.

    Please, pardon me if I have overstepped my boundaries and spoken as a believer too. Once again, my sincere sympathies. 🙂

  11. Very sorry to hear of your sadness Gilly. Death is never easy to accept, and your anger is both natural and part of the grieving process, whether you believe in a god or not. Hold on.

  12. The matter of distance, time or even when you may meet someone you had not known existed is not important but how you hold them in your heart and for you, she will be there always. Sorry to hear of your loss.

  13. My thoughts are with you, Gilly. Hope the precious memories will always stay close to you and comfort you.
    So sorry for your loss.

  14. I’m so sorry to hear of your loss, Gilly. I have only one sister, and we have always been close. In fact, she’s the only close family I have left on this earth. I’m greatly encouraged every day, though, to know that my parents, grandparents, and husband all knew the Lord and are now in His presence, rejoicing and enjoying life as they never could have on this earth. This life is not the end. It’s only a very minute particle of eternity. When we are all together again, there will be no sickness, no pain, no tears, and no goodbyes forever. The God who created that place for us loves us dearly and has an eternity planned for us beyond anything we can imagine. I hope you can begin to focus on that truth instead of this very temporary part of life.

  15. I had no idea, Gilly. I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your sister. I wish I could say something that could take you to a more comforting place. Thinking of you.

I would love to hear from you . . .
