So sorry to hear that JPZ... unfortunately this is one reality that far too many of us here share with you and understand the sense of loss.
It's so easy to beat yourself up in hindsight... I should've emailed more, I should've told them more, I should've... I should've... I should've..'
... many of us know that only too well. But trust me when I say the person recently departed, in this case the beautiful Aquarius, would've had this
as the very last thing on her mind.
Did you stop and consider how quickly you received a reply to your last email from her daughter? Did you stop to ponder just how soon after her
passing that email arrived? Well... having lost my 70 year old father 6 months ago to a 14 week Melanoma horror and my step mum 12 months before that
a 12 year fight with breast cancer... I can tell you in all honestly my friend, she's spoken of you on a number of occasions and in terms her daughter
clearly understood and respected. Aquarius's daughter knew fully well what you meant to her and to what regard she held you in and that's why she made
a specific point of replying to you in the manner she did. I'll put money on the fact that there's life long friends and acquaintances of Aquarius who
didn't come close to receiving that kind of 'preferential treatment'... treatment usually reserved for immediate and close family, and possibly best
Hold your head high and be proud such a beautiful soul saw fit to bring you in so close... smile when you think of her... don't ponder the 'What Ifs'
and the 'I should Haves'... they're a complete waste of energy and not representative of the woman, the friennd and the relationship you clearly hold
so dear. You're privileged to have had this... many people never experience what you did in their entire lives. You Sir have been blessed.
... and furthermore... what do honestly think she would say or think about what your focusing on and feeling. She'd punch you in the shoulder and tell
you remember her with the good stuff in mind... not the other!
Kia Kaha o Arohanui.
Be strong and much love my friend.
