Just a reminder to all of you over these next few days. The weather reports all over are talking extreme heat. Those of you out West have even warmer temperatures than here in the Midwest or East. Please keep well hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Hopefully all of you have air in your homes. If not, please find a friend or relative that has air and see if you can go there. Otherwise, find out where the cooling centers in your neighborhood or town are and use them. Please take care not to over exert yourself and check in here.

Dear Carol ...  what a beautiful experience you had.  I've only had one or two, but yes, did feel his protected arms around me often, but it seems it's getting less.  Perhaps he feels I'm stronger now, but I'd give everything I own just to have one more hug bear hug from him.

I am so sorry to hear about that little boy and we have to ask ourselves 'why' just as we did when our spouses passed away.  There are no answers to this question as we know.  How sad for the family and Christmas is going to be very emotional for them.  I can certainly see why your daughter is upset; such a young little guy and then again 'why?'

Your words about Christmas is the very same way I feel Carol.  It does get easier, but Jack and Ernie will never leave our hearts.  Each Christmas for 45 years Ernie and I had a special Christmas Eve together and I still go through the motions and just take 'time out' to think of him and even talk to him.  Crazy lady?  I don't think so.

I'd love to get in touch with you and perhaps we can still make that lunch.  Looking forward to hearing from you. Still have your voice message on my machine.  LOL

Wilela ...  I know these special occasions including our spouses never are easy, but know Brian is right there with you my friend.  I wish I could give you a personal hug.

BRIAN ...  HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  Your wife Elaine is quite the lady, but I don't have to tell you that because you're always around her help her through the heart-break of grief.  One day we'll be together again with our spouses and I believe your time is in Nano seconds considering earth's time. 

Thank you for sending Elaine to us on this wonderful forum of those who grieve as she is one of our angels.

Hugs from Elaine's friend
