So very beautiful. Thank you for sharing, my friend.
I’m so sorry for your loss. I have never been able to deal with death, and so for me this is one of the best backspaces I’ve seen so far.
This is simply beautiful.
Beautiful how God shows himself
Powerful and heartfelt.
Beautiful story. Loved it. Its now featured on Hipstamatic Topic.
…exquisitely beautyfull… …deeply touching… …thank you for sharing the beauty of death… ❤🙏❤ …bountifull blessings be upon you this day & always… ❤🙏❤
Beautiful! Death and theology are fascinating to me, especially when they come together. This was poetic and lovely and wow, amazing.
The journey explained, and beautifully.
Stunning, emotional and personally resonant. I love it. Thank you for sharing your perfectly chosen words and beautiful photos.
Beautifully told 💙
A sad but beautiful journey, thank you
This is breathtakingly beautiful. I so admire how you took this part of your life on and chose to grow in such an enlightened way. My favorite BS story, hands down. (And I didn’t think this would be a piece I would find laughter in, but you found God in fried chicken dinners! 😄)
Beautiful. Also, Lucinda Williams is always right :)
As a hospice volunteer, we don’t get to see the healing after death. Thank you for sharing your journey.
so beautiful… love it!
Thank you for sharing. This will remain a beautifully impassioned testament simply to remember living in times of death.
Couldn’t agree more about Hospice Nurses, they are the purest beings imaginable. I watched them care for my mother with devotion to HER dignity and well being for 3 months. Every day was filled with kindness, care and respect. The kitchen staff would come to visit her and talk to her about what she wanted to eat, going out of their way to ensure she had it. They cried with me when she passed, they truly and honestly mourned with me. Yes, there are Angels and yes they are Hospice Care Givers!
This is officially my favorite story on Backspaces.
ooo geez, this hits home. ❤💚❤
Many thanks Backspaces friends for your kind words of support … I’ve been at work all day and just checked my iPhone and am quite stunned by this outpouring of kindness. 💙💛 I almost called this story “Why I love Death” but thought it a tad to provocative. But seriously, what a fine journey it has been. It’s about learning what it means to live and losing the fear. Of everything. Very cool indeed. BTW, this all happened around 2005, so it’s been around 7 years. And not until Backspaces came along @SandersAK
I just turned on some Lucinda to jam along as I think your story over. I am personally bracing myself for a few of these “transitions” as you aptly call them. I guess reading this makes me realize that maybe I can’t prepare, but I can know that there is something beautiful waiting for me on the other side, even if I don’t fully understand yet. Thank you.
Tremendous! Thanks for sharing this! I’m so glad you were able to turn so much tragedy around into something positive.
Well thank YOU @jlg
What a beautiful tribute to your parents/partner! I got choked up!! Though I am sorry for your loss, I am happy it was a peaceful love-filled transition for them as well as you. Beautiful work, beautiful imagery!
beautiful, touching, strong…
Beautifully told in images and words. I’m so glad you found it in yourself to share this here. It will touch and help many. Bravo. ( I’m an ex hospice nurse, retired now, and appreciate you sharing your journey)
This is best place on….internet? :) amazing sharing, what a beautiful way to deal with such experience; and apart what is business from what is beautiful in death is something ppl are not or never ready to. I related a lot here! Thank you!
Such beauty is written in these words. But the things that kept sticking in my head were the famous last words, “death, is only the beginning.” and “Angles are everywhere.” thank you for sharing.
Such generosity in your words, thank you @VioletRothko
Welcome to wherever You Are. For it is there that you become that which you truly are , Love . Thanks for this beautiful message :-)
Beautiful…… So very beautiful. Thank you 🙏
Stunningly beautiful, real and touching. Thank you so much for giving us this window to part of what you experienced.
At a loss for words…this is truly great!
Today is the anniversary of my father’s passing. Thanks so much for this-
Fantastic meditation on the process of dealing with death and grief. 👌
Death and grief is a different journey for everyone and this expression is so beautiful. I grew up around death as my dad is a funeral director (I grew up in a funeral home) and my mom was a hospice nurse. She is now retired.
Thank you @tephi
