I have been feeling sorry for myself and my family lately. I have some things to deal with, but they really are small. I finally went over to my friend and found that Mr. Z had passed. What a shock. I only wish that she has the peace of the Lord with her and the comfort of family.

She has always been classy in the advocacy of her point of view and Mr. Z was a voice of logic and veracity. Whenever those of us who were privileged to know her on line were involved in life's crises, she was quick to come to our aid and give comfort. I've never met her, but I feel I know her and I feel her pain. I wish I was near her to give her comfort.

Mr. Z is with his maker, God, and like my dad, they are reaping the reward of their good life and are at peace. We can only hope we join them someday.

I am so sorry Z. I don't know what else to say, but God Bless You. Holy smokes, I wish I could do more.


Z said...

thanks so much, Law and Order. I wish I could meet you.
This meant the world to me.
I'm not commenting anywhere but saw from your comment at my place and sensed you were going through trouble and I wanted to see what it was. I'll pray for you and your wife....I hope she's 100% very soon.
I wish you could have known Mr Z and I hope you read his last post that he'd written a few weeks ago which I just posted.. xxx

Lots of friends in our blogging community are experiencing bad times right now. I know it's out of character for a lib like me, but I am a Christian and know that my thoughts and prayers are with you LAOT. And you also Z. Shaw is going through a rough time as well. Politics aside, I wish I knew why bad things happen to good people.

I haven't been out for a while, and I didn't know your wife was injured. I hope that she recovers with all speed!

I can only imagine the pain you are feeling. I am OK, my wife is struggling but is recovering. God will bless you and I'll pray for you in church tomorrow. We Catholics light candles for our intentions. I'll light one for you and my dad. God Bless you.

Libs or otherwise there are good people who can differ honestly. You are one who listens and takes your positions with honesty. As always my friend, thank you.

As always thanks for the visit. My blogging friends are a great comfort.

L&O Teach, I think we all have been in a slump....Sorry to hear about Z,, I too liked his views and also like you I pray he is in a better place. stay well my friend....

Z said...

My goodness...what kind words.

Truth101...I'm so sorry Shaw's going thru troubles; he even commented at my place, very kindly, about Mr. Z tho he rarely if ever comes by; how kind of him. I'll have to find his blog and let him know I'm concerned and wish him the best. THANK YOU for your prayers, Truth; I'm like L&0, I know I get a little pushy sometimes in my conservatism but I admire your comments as you're respectful and smart and obviously love this country.
You make a great point about bad things happening to good people; bad things happen to ALL people, it's how we're blessed while we're brought out of them or succumb to them that matters, I think..., and we Christians at least know where we're going and it's a far, far, far better place than this, isn't it. I HAVE to admit that after Mr. Z died, I said to family members "there better DAMNED well really be a heaven" :-)

Tapline..thanks so much.

L&0...I am praying for your family...please let us know how things progress.

Today was the everything else we went through with this awful amyloidosis (which I'll be blogging about this coming week, early signs, etc.), everything was AS NICE or BETTER than it might have been. We've been truly blessed and I'm positive the kindness of you and others has held me and my family up. THANK YOU.

Thanks for the comments Z. It is an honor that you felt compelled to comment here. I'll honor you with some posts. I just am in the middle trying to burn the candle at both ends. I'll get a handle on this and start up again. God bless.
