Nita has lost her beloved John.

There are no words. What can be said when the loss is so huge.
His accident left John and their lives...paralyzed.

Through it all Nita has done her very best to stay strong and hopeful,

and encouraging

to those of us in blogland that have
suffered sorrow and loss.

Always sending a sweet note.
Always caring.

They celebrated their 19th anniversary just last month

If you would like to send something to Nita, please contact me at faerieluna at
If you have never lost someone close you might not know
how much it means to have pieces of mail
arrive filled with love and compassion
filled with art and hope
filled with something that feels real when life feels
other worldly and foreign.
If we lived next door we would bring meals
We would bring flowers
We would bring our energy and clean and cook and look after them while they, the walking wounded, tried to put one foot in front of the other.
We would shop for them and shovel snow if we had to.
It's a time of 'doing' for someone in need.

Oh God, Rella - I am so sad for Nita, my heart just aches for her. I spoke to Nita last night and she sounds like she in in shock, as I can imagine she is. Let's just hold her up in prayer!

I rushed over and left a message, but really ... how much can I help to stop such pain? I hope it will comfort to know so many care.

Thank you for being the kind and caring person that you are to organize a show of love and support for your friend. Even though many of us have never met Nita and John we can recognize them and their love in our own hearts.

I offer what I can and know that it will never be enough on it's own, but hopefully through numbers it will be at least a wave of calm and love during this time of loss.
