The Breakfast Table

Just under an hour ago my dear sister got her angel wings.  She is sitting at the breakfast table knowing we will be there shortly.  Our time here is so temporary.  Please pray for our family.

Be blessed,
Pamela

I am so sorry for your loss. I heard about your sister from another journaler. She had to have touched many lives and hearts for people to reach out from so far and wide , and shed so many tears. You are very lucky now, you have your own personal Angel to bend the universe for you, no doubt your family will be surrounded by enormous amounts of love from the heavens . If there is anything any one can do for you....do not hesitate....In the light of Jesus, God Bless you and your family.      Tami

I am very, very sad and upset that Irene has gone. She was an example to many and always upbeat, in spite of the grave adversity that has now claimed her. I wish you, the family, strength and fortitude at this difficult time. I will not forget Irene.

trishaham said...

I just got the notice of Irene's passing. I am so sorry. I am fairly new to her journal, But read all her enteries when I found her through a fellow j-land writer. She was such a joy. She brought a smile to my face through her words and her loving and positive attitudes with life. She loved her family so much. I loved reading of her time with you Pamela and your family during the holidays. She was so happy and proud to be a Auntie. She was such wonderous gift from God.  I am so sorry she was taken from you so soon. My love and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.

God bless you,
Tia

motoxmom72 said...

I didn't know you that well, Rene.  I am sad that you are gone.  I got to know you through your journey of battling Cancer.  Through it all you never batted an eye and kept many of us in stitches with your humor.  God speed to you.  You are surely an angel in heaven keeping an eye on us all.  Save me a place at The Breakfast Table....I'll be there some day.
Hugs,
Gina

kirkbyj05 said...

I was saddened to read in Guido's journal that Irene had passed away.  She so loved life and her family too. I was always amazed at how she fought through all her pain and discomfort and still kept looking ahead and upbeat.  
God took pity on her and called her home.
May she rest in peace.
Praying for her soul and all her family and friends.  I know she will be greatly missed.
Jeanie

I was just reading over the journals and found this title rather interesting. My regret is not having found this journal sooner. What a wonderful this lady was. I am so sorry i haven't met her sooner. I guess I will just have to wait until I meet her at the breakfast table.

attitudeslc said...

This is my first stop here.  Indigo told us about your loss.  I can't explain the feeling that comes over me when I read that someone has passed.  I feel such sadness, yet I am filled with so much hope.  We are all one, and if ever anything proved that, it is quite evident here in JLand!

Love and prayers to you and your family and blessings on your sister on her flight home.

jeanno43 said...

I have now added dear Irene's photo and a link to this, her journal, on our memorial journal - J-Land angels.  I have put the link so that people can still come back and read her writings. I do hope that the family feel happy with this.  She was a wonderful member of J-Land and we like to remember our friends in this special way. If you have any problems with my doing this then please feel free to e-mail me.  God bless.

morrison7899 said...

Dear Pam,

I was shocked to find the sad update today. You know I have had all of you in my prayers. I'm sorry for the loss to the family. Rene was soooooooo incredibly awesome! I will call you to see if it's possible for me to be there. I may be too late. I love you and miss you.

Love,

Melinda

jmutke94 said...

Pam

My heart is heavy...I met Irene in 1998 while living in Maryland. I moved out of state in 2000 and have since moved again. Something led me to this site less than a month ago after having no contact with Rene since 2001 and I have quietly been following Irene's steps through life. I didn't intrude and say hi after all these years...I don't know why...it just didn't feel right. Irene and I were always spiritually in tune with one another...she will always be a part of my spirit...so here's to Rene...free from a broken body...her soul will forever shine!

I hope the family are beginning to come to terms with the fact that Irene will be waiting for you at the breakfast table, as promised. For the time being, she is in a better place, with no pain and no anxiety. Beyond any of our reach - yet. Wishing you all strength.

Reneem1954 said...

I just happen across this. This lady was an inspiration! Makesmy disabilities seem so small. My name is Renee too. I lost a daughter to an auto accident in 2004, Easter Sunday. Renee and Missy are sharing breakfast everyday. Thanks for sharing her world with us. Renee

ADB said...

It is now nearly four years ago since you went to the Breakfast Table, Rene. Although you are sorely missed, I am pleased you are now released from pain and suffering.

ADB said...

Nearly five years have passed, Rene, and some of us have already joined you at the breakfast table. Meanwhile, we that are left behind have not forgotten you, and never will. Until next time,

Guido
