Early morning today I received the news that a friend passed away after her battle with cancer. We met through a crochet group and she became a friend and an example of so much goodness and strength. I’m having a hard time holding my hook or doing anything but crying but I have to. She would want me to. I committed to finish things. I have a young son in Heaven and I hope they are watching me and laughing today as I am all tangled up in a mess of yarn and tears. Sorry for the very messy post. I’m worse than the worst of all yarn barf. Would you all please do me a favor and dedicate one of your stitches to Heaven today, and tell her : This is for you Carrie !
hugs I’ll do it! I will finish my bag for your friend!
This made me cry as I just got over my own battle with cancer, just hugs.lots of emotion for me, I’m so sorry for your loss.

I’m so sorry for your loss, I lost my grandmother to COVID last year and it’s definitely easier said then done to get things back to normal, take all the time you need to grieve, I’ll definitely dedicate stitches to your friend Carrie and your son
Oh I’m so sorry to hear of your news. May you be wrapped up in love and peace.
I’m so sorry. My uncle just passed from cancer a couple weeks ago too. I hope you feel better
I will dedicate every stitch from now on will be to you and your son and your dear friend Carrie. I’m so sorry for your loss.
I’m so sorry for your loss.
Oh sweetie, I’m so sorry. The grief is overwhelming in the beginning. Cry it out. Once you’re past that, the grief comes in waves, cry then too.
It was most helpful to talk to someone about the person who died or write in a journal.
I’m so sorry, losing a friend is so hard. I will dedicate my stitches to her and your son as well
sorry for the loss i hope things will vet better for you eventualky
I’m so sorry for your loss! I’m putting in a good thought for you and your friend It will be hard, especially at first, but don’t forget to take care of yourself. Be gentle with yourself
Thank you so much for everyone who have responded and supported me. Today is still being a hard day. Holding my hook hurts but not holding it hurts more, so having your words made a huge difference. I am new here but I’m happy I joined. I’m still getting to know you and I hope maybe some of us will get to be friends too one day.
I’m sorry for your loss. Don’t be too hard on yourself. Ik its tough but remember to eat and to drink and take breaks. I think we all here will dedicate more than just one stitch to your friend and son, and to everyone else who has been or is in this situation or knows someone that is fighting cancer right now. My bf’s mom was recently diagnosed with lung cancer and its been tough to handle but I’m trying my best to be there for him. Much love for you and for all of you who read this and relate This is for you all and Carrie and your son.
