We are sorry for your recent loss. The death of a loved one is difficult, continue to lean on God, friends and family. God will always give you comfort, as found in the Bible at (2Cor 1:3-4). He will soon take away death (1Cor 15:26), and he will soon return our loved ones by way of the resurrection (John 5:28-29).
Please search the article “When someone you love dies”, at it greatly helped us through a difficult time and we hope it can help you to gain some comfort.

Mrs. B. was my neighbor for more than fifty years---separated by a stone wall that might as well have been a front door. Our families grew up together in "Sherwood Forest" in the 1960s and 1970s, and those memories are etched forever. Our deepest condolences to Denny, Kathy, and Stevie. Your mom and dad were really special people, part of a truly great generation, back in a kinder, gentler day.

I am so glad I had the opportunity to meet Maryann. What a lovely lady she was and had a such great sense of humor. Hope this poem brings the family some comfort as it did when I lost my mom:

Gone From My Sight
I am standing upon the seashore. A ship, at my side,
spreads her white sails to the moving breeze and starts
for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength.
I stand and watch her until, at length, she hangs like a speck
of white cloud just where the sea and sky come to mingle with each other.

Then, someone at my side says, "There, she is gone."

Gone where?

Gone from my sight. That is all. She is just as large in mast,
hull and spar as she was when she left my side.
And, she is just as able to bear her load of living freight to her destined port.

Her diminished size is in me -- not in her.

And, just at the moment when someone says, "There, she is gone,"
there are other eyes watching her coming, and other voices
ready to take up the glad shout, "Here she comes!"

My deepest sympathies - Eileen Holihan
