Please...... please - May 17th 2009, 01:52 AM

I need all of your prayers right now.
Even if you're not Catholic or Christian... I need you to please pray or wish well for my little cousin.

Her name is Tessa, she is fourteen years old and she is dieing.
She has been battling brain cancer for the past 2 years and I was just informed tonight that it is now a matter of hours to days before she passes.
I refuse to believe this and I just need everyone... anyone to think of her and wish her well..
Please.... please.

She's too young to die, she hasn't had her chance to live yet...

She has to get better.


everything will be okay
in the end
if it's not okay
its not the end.

Kimberly,

I cannot begin to express how sorry I am for you, your family, and Tessa. There is no way to prepare for the loss of a loved one, and it must be so difficult for you, right now, to cope with what the doctor's are saying. When young people are sick or injured, all we are left hoping for is their full recovery. It's okay to hope, Kimberly, but understand that the doctors may be right--these may be your last moments with Tessa, and I hope you can treasure them.

She and you, both, are in my thoughts. Take care and let me know if you need anything at all.



Someday I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us.
I told you to be patient
I told you to be fine
I told you to be balanced
I told you to be kind

Hey Kimberly. I'm so sorry to hear about your cousin, thats a terrible thing to have to endure through, for both you and her. I hope her situation improves and I will definitely think of you and her.

Take care, honey.


Yesterday I saw you kissing tiny flowers
But everything that lives is born to die
And so I say to you that nothing really matters
And all you do is stand and cry.


Music is life. Start living.

Hi Kimberly,

I'm so sorry that you and your family are dealing with such a hard situation. I'll definitely be praying for you all.

I'm so sorry to hear that Kimberly

I really hope you're going to be okay, remember you can always PM me if you need to talk about it, or anything. But right now it's probably best you are there for your family, and taking care of yourself. Stay strong!

Hey Kimberly,

I am so sorry. What you're going through right now is so incredibly hard. You are a strong girl and you can make it through this. In hard times like these looking to God to give you strength can help you get through it. Don't be afraid to rely on the people around you for support. Your family, your friends, your neighbors, your religion, and possibly even a counselor are all good things to turn to for help and support when you need it. I know it might be hard but try to cherish all the happy memories you shared with your cousin. Keep Tessa alive in spirit. I'm sure she wouldn't want her death to hold you back from enjoying all life has to offer. I just want to remind you that you are not alone and there are many people around you that are more than willing to help you. If you ever need someone to talk to feel free to PM me. I know how hard it is to lose a family member. Take care and hang in there. I am here for you if you need me.


Lots of love <3 Mimi

RIP Tessa.
I just lost a very close friend who was 13.
If you want to talk, feel free to PM me.
Hope you're okay.

The best advice I have is to cry when your sad, but remember all of the good memories you made with her. Time will help heal.

If you ever want to talk, feel free to message me.

I'm so sorry for you're loss. Please know that everyone is behind you to help you through this.

I read the post just now, but I don't feel that its too late to pray for Tessa. She's still and will always be with you.


Love is all we need. :]

Kimberly,

I'm so sorry to hear this news. Try not to be alone, right now--spend time with your loved ones and make sure to talk, if you need to.

Nothing I can say will bring Tessa back or make coping with her loss easier and, for that, I am sorry. Cherish the memories you have of her, though. No one can take the past from you, not even death; she can live on in your heart forever.

Take care of yourself and don't ever hesitate to contact me if you need anything.



Someday I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us.
I told you to be patient
I told you to be fine
I told you to be balanced
I told you to be kind

I will pray for you and your family but must not look at this in a bad way. If your cousin passes she will be in eternal happiness with jesus and there will be no more pain. She will be at peace.

Thank-you everyone. It really means a lot to me to have so many people care and want to help. <3
My dad's family is arriving today as the wake is today and tomorrow, the funeral is on Wednesday.
I cried the night before she passed when my dad told me she probably wasn't going to make it through the night, but the next morning when he had told me that she had passed on, I just sat there... I felt numb... I still havn't cried for her and I refuse to believe that she's actually gone. I've never been to a wake before, I've only been to one funeral and it was for a family friend. I've never seen a burial before and I don't see myself letting them put her in the ground... I don't think I can do it.


everything will be okay
in the end
if it's not okay
its not the end.

It's a shame I didn't see this thread earlier in the week, as the wake and funeral will have happened already. But what I would have said is still relevant, so I'll say it now...

I know the final goodbye is extremely painful, especially since Tessa was so young. But the way I see it; when you saw her being put into the ground, it wasn't really her. Tessa's energy (soul) would have already left, her physical body was just an empty vessel, so to speak. So although her body has been buried, her spirit will always be with you.
