    My grandmother said she was always aware of my grandfather helping her, in life he had been gassed so was very poorly. I too when very young felt his loving presence, this was long before my grandmother spoke to me.
    I think loving energy is quite tangible, I know it does not entirely replace what we have lost but it can comfort.

    So sorry Geraldine. xxx

    They that love beyond the world cannot be separated by it.
    Death cannot kill what never dies.
    Nor can spirits ever be divided, that love and live in the same divine principle, the root and record of their friendship.
    If absence be not death, neither is theirs.
    Death is but crossing the world, as friends do the seas; they live in one another still.
    For they must needs be present, that love and live in that which is omnipresent.
    In this divine glass they see face to face; and their converse is free, as well as pure.
    This is the comfort of friends, that though they may be said to die, yet their friendship and society are, in the best sense, ever present, because immortal.”

    Many thanks to all of you for your understanding, especially Geraldine who is suffering recent loss but found it in her heart to respond.
    That's the thing I love about TP, you can speak freely about your emotions knowing no one will judge you. I'm feeling a bit brighter now thanks to being able to offload to you all.

    Thinking of you @kindred I’m so sorry for the loss of your beloved blue eyed boy ...and I thought about the poem from Carve Her Name With Pride posted on TP .This is the last verse of that poem .....

    A sleep I shall have
    A rest I shall have
    Yet death will be but a pause
    For the peace of my years in the long green grass
    Will be yours and yours and yours

    My husband and I have known and loved this poem after seeing the film over 60 odd years ago.
    Take care of yourself A x
