Saying good bye is so very hard to do

This morning Mr Gab woke me up with the worst news you could possibly wake up to. One of our friends passed away yesterday! She was our oldest son's God mother. She was too young to go. She had ALS.
Then comes the hardest part saying good bye to a friend that you are very close to, had loads of fun with, share much with and lots and lots of laughter.
Mr Gab knew her way before I did. They met when Mr Gab was in the Army. I met them when we got married. The same week we got married he called them to tell them he got married. They couldn't believe it because he said he was never getting married. So we drove all the way up there to prove it! Oh and then came the next surprise.....I was expecting......first thing out of her mouth to her hubby was "I wanna baby" that caused a big fight that weekend. But in the end they had 2 boys. She was about 6 months along when we got our son baptized and she had to hold our chunk of a son who at birth weighed in at 9 lbs 1 oz so by the time he was baptized he was a whopping 20 lbs and here she is bigger than a house trying to hold on to him. But it worked out and they became his god parents and life went on. And now we are saying good bye to her. We have our memories of course we will never loose those, and many pictures and many stories. But it just seems totally impossible that she is gone. We love you Marilyn and will miss you very much! May god hold you in his arms and take care of you till we all see you again.

I am so sorry for your loss.
I guess we have all been there at some time.
It's hard not seeing those we love any more but yes you still have those memories to keep you warm
