Terrible news

I simply want to let those of you who have been kind enough to send prayers and thoughts for my friend Pauline.

Unfortunately, her body was recovered yesterday, more than six months after her disappearance.  Their primary lead is suicide, possibly an accident, and her identity was confirmed by the dental impression.

This darling girl was like my sister and I am devastated to realize she is really gone and that she was in such distress that she would take her own life.  I hadn't really talked to her for more than a month before she went missing.

I love you, Popi.

That's so awful, I'm so sorry for your loss. <3 There are really no words for this, but I'm thinking of you.
I know that no two situations like this are ever the same, but if you want to talk to someone who has gone through a similar loss, I'm always here. xoxoxoxo

*huge hugs* I'm so sorry to hear this. My thoughts and prayers are still with you all.
I know this is a tough time, if there is anything I can do- (even if it's just ordering more for you to knit?) please know I want to help. If you need to chat, vent, focus on other things, you name it- Just let me know how, I'm here.
Thank you for sharing, I know this must have been a horrible post to write.
Lots of love and positive vibes from Australia xxx

Oh sweetie, I am so very sorry to hear this. I have often thought of your friend and said a little prayer for her.
Take good care of yourself at this difficult time.
Maybe do something to remember her like light a candle, I will also light one for her.
It's so hard to understand when good people are taken so young.

Sending you love and a hug x

You and her will be in my prayers, too. i am so sorry to hear this and i know that words can only fail to offer any consolation. You are going though such an awfull lot, you are so brave and beautiful please look after yourself, i know this medium fails as well but still i send you virtual hugs. even if we have never been in touch i have always been reading your blog. so if you feel the need to talk to a "stranger"of a friend do not hesitate to email me.

'Accidental suicide' deserves different phrasing, even if we strive to prevent deliberate attempts. I'm sorry you didn't get better closure.

The Lovely Bones said...

I'm so sorry, I don't even know what to say.
My thoughts are with you and her family.
I hope you're okay.
Take care.
