This place is only our temporary home, as a christian I have always believed that, and even though I have been taught that in heaven everything will be made new, it still hurts when you lose loved ones you wanted to keep.

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” – Dr. Seuss

I never know what to say at funerals, how do you make that moment better? “Their in a better place now” or maybe “today God got another angel”. Nothing can be said to make a death easy to bear or to understand why they had to die instead of a thief or a murderer. Life can be unfair at times and we are not meant to understand why, but to accept it and love anyway.

My best example of this is my husband, on our wedding day he knew I was sick and that my life would be shorter than his, but he still married me and chose to live with a daily reminder of how unfair life can be.

My Grandma died a few weeks ago, she was 77 years old. She had lived a good life, she grew up on a ranch in Idaho, had 4 beautiful children, 10 grandchildren (not positive on the number), and to my greatest sorrow lost a great grandchild.

What makes life worth living is different for everyone, my Grandmother may not have had the best life had to offer, but no matter how difficult or unfair it got she chose to live it, that is something I can look up to.

“Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.”


Rest in Peace Sharon Hulbert

  1. Thank you, Alicia. I was so sorry and surprised really to hear Sharon had died. I had seen her about a week and a half before and tho she was a little thinner she seemed about the same. Of course that was before her pneumonia. So here’s a hug for you for the loss if your grandma.
