Why is Dying so hard?


In her last week Patricia Bow asked about dying, “Why is it so hard?” She also wrote: ” I hate the fact that I am making several loved people unhappy.” The thing about dying is that no one wants you to die. She cared about how her loved ones were going to feel. Nobody wanted her to die and she didn’t want to hurt those she loved. Well she was right, I am never going to get over it. Love lasts forever.
“But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O [Patricia] …, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.” Isaiah 43: 1-2 King James Version (KJV)
“Grief is the last act of love we have to give to those we loved. Where there is deep grief, there was great love.” Patricia our love lives on, it does not die with the body. Love is stronger than Death!

About thebows99krug

Hi, I am Eric, a retired librarian. I was born in St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto and raised in the downtown area north of the Art Gallery, south of the University of Toronto. I went to Orde Street Public School, Harbord C.I., University College at the UofT and the UofT's Faculty of Library and Information Science. I meet my wife Patricia at FLIS; our first date was on November 15, 1968. We were engaged February 14, 1969 and married on June 21, 1969. Our family includes son, James; daughter-in-law, Erin; (both writers), grand-daughters, Vivian and Eleanor; and Sonic, a very friendly ginger tabby. My beloved wife died January 7, 2017 and our 19 year old cat Pooka died January 8, 2017. I would like to hear from any other class of '63 alumni of Harbord C.I. and class of '67 alumni of UofT's University College.
