|Hi Donnie's Carole,
Yes, I felt very blessed to receive those two messages. It has been quite some time; I forgot a couple more ADCs, my mom's special bird is a cardinal and mine is a blue heron- well, on our way to the cemetery, a cardinal flew right in front of my windshield and on the way back, a blue heron was taking flight up above.
Thank you for sharing my post. What I am hoping for is that folks can share a letter they write now. So, for me, I will be writing my Dad a letter, knowing he has been gone for almost ten years and sharing with him how much he meant to me and the lessons I have learned from him, even though he wasn't physically here to teach them to me.
Many grief counsellors recommend writing a letter to a loved one as closure, however, this isn't always possible when we're grieving. So, it doesn't really matter when the loved one passed into spirit, I am just looking for essentially a "love letter" to our loved ones. Or a message of forgiveness, of appreciation, of goodbye or of hello.
Another way to look at it is, if you could say something to your loved one and know they'd get the letter, what would you say.
