Journey Through Grief

AnnaLeah and Mary

SEE BELOW for links to posts from the AnnaLeah & Mary Karth Memorial Facebook Page–starting in June 2013 through the present. . .

Our crash took place on May 4, 2013. We lost AnnaLeah that very day. We lost Mary on May 8, 2013.  In early June 2013, their older sister, Rebekah, set up a facebook page in memory of her sisters. I am so thankful for the opportunity which that has given me to express my grief and share wonderful memories of Mary and AnnaLeah.

https://www.facebook.com/pages/In-Memory-of-AnnaLeah-1995-to-2013-and-Mary-Lydia-Karth-1999-to-2013/464993830249803

Because so much has been posted there, it is difficult for me to navigate that facebook page in order to recall and reflect on that journey of grief. So I am about to embark on a project of finding and saving those posts in a format which can be linked on this page. I will try my best to title them appropriately and paste them here, by month, in a chronological fashion.

NOTE: Finished! Wow…that was a lot of words written over a relatively short period.  And it was very emotional for me to go through this process! I was reminded of an interesting thought in a post by Peter:

 Writing Can Be Healing (for some): https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=483066201775899&id=464993830249803

Now that I have caught up on saving all of these posts, I am reminded again that posting over the last year and a half has been immeasurably valuable to me in helping me get through this time and has, furthermore, provided me with easy access to many wonderful memories of AnnaLeah and Mary (and maybe this can be put in book form someday).

I think that I was motivated to post partly by a desire to preserve everything I could find and remember about them because they would not be here to remind me of things I might have forgotten about them. Also, for them, there would be no growing old with reminiscing about how it was when they were growing up–no children or grandchildren, new nieces & nephews to regale with tales of old. There will be no new stories to tell or joy to spread–making more priceless memories of what they had already lived out.

It has been immensely important to me to help preserve the imprint which they have left on this earth. (Marianne, November 7, 2014)

Bright yellow forsythia & deep pink azalea filling my backyard, remind me that another springtime has come which they will never fill with their joy and laughter. Never theirs to enjoy.

Yesterday, Danelle recalled her most horrible St. Patrick’s Day in 3rd grade when she forgot to wear green and suffered 100s of pinches at school. Being taught at home, Mary did not have that worry. She simply loved any holiday (“Every day’s a holiday with Mary”) and gladly wore green.
