  1. Weasle Ahlstrom Forsythe says:

    My mother died in childbirth, and the last words she said to my father were, “I love you. Give her my love.” My father was later murdered by my stepmother, who told me while she was telling me how she poisioned my father, and left him to die on the kitchen floor, that she hated me because his last words were: “Biscuit, Baby Biscuit, I love you. I’m not leaving you. I love you”. “baby biscuit” was my englisch trindlname from my father. He died repeating my mothers words to me.

    • What powerful stories Weasle. It’s taken me some time to post a reply because I didn’t feel capable and “present” enough to do so. Your experience is a mix of both tragedy and love. It’s amazing to me how strong and insistent love can be in the midst of painful, horrible, situations like the deaths of your mother and father. To me those last words are such a gift, such a bright energy of light for you. They are what Native American, indigenous healers and shaman people call MEDICINE. You have my heart gratitude for sharing them. Much love and blessings to you (and healing too).
