Goodbye England’s Rose – YouTube

I am sitting here with tears streaming down my face.  Something that happens all too much these days.   I remember so clearly the day we heard the news.   I had just gotten home from another surgery.  I was stuck in bed, not allowed to get up for any reason because they had hollowed out my right leg bone.   Ron had brought in the paper before he went to work.   He left it next to me.  While he was at work I woke, read the headline and broke down into the hardest sobs I think I ever felt.   Ron came home that afternoon to check on me, and seeing me there in tears with sobs I couldn’t stop he thought my leg bone had broken.   Shattered I tried to tell him as he held me.  To this day I can not tell you why her death hurts me so.  I can not in anyway express what I felt that day, nor why I cry when I hear the song.  All I can say is that day my heart broke, and my tears fell.  They still do when I hear the song.   Much love.  Many hugs



  1. I can’t feel the same. My mother died the next day. Every year I have to hear about Diana and it just rends my heart to know my mom’s slow painful death will never be as memorable as hers. And of course, how many damn years it has been. Next year the big 20.

    • I am sorry for your loss and I grieve with you my friend. I can’t say why it hit so hard. Know your mother is still honored, you do it, and carry her in your memories. You are a grand person. I feel your mom would be proud of who you have become. Hugs
