My sister sent this to me today, it is pretty cute, maybe it will bring a smile to your faces.   Prayer for strength, comfort and peace for all of us.    Janice

Of course this comes out 3 days before the first anniv. of his death. I know what my heart feels and I also know what I should do. It's so hard without him!!

Mystepdaughter wants to use my(john's ) truck until Nov. because her reg. was suspended until Nov. She has never been honest with us about anything. I really feel like she's lying again(probably lapsed ins.), I'm not stupid. My problem is the same as it always was with my husband...if you don't help, the kids(4 grandchildren from her) will suffer. She will be 33 this year. John bailed her out all of the time. I stopped bailing his son because he lies to me. I have bad feelings about this. I can't sleep and I worry about my ins. I just put $2000 into making it safe for the winter. There is no trust there. I already know I need to get the truck back, What about my loyalty to my husband????? Those kids used him and his love. Only called him when they needed money or a bail out and he did it! He loved them sooo much. Kept thinking..maybe this time they'll turn it around...OMG I want to scream!!!!

Just reading these posts now and as Faith says "Wow"!  That just isn't right or fair but unfortunately it happens quite a bit in families.  The nastiness though you have been dealing with is awful, so very sorry.  I have drama but not to that degree.  More it is with my daughter's in-laws, they create the drama in our family, not mine, who have been very supportive and loving.  There is so much jeaously and coveting of "what's yours is mine" and no rights to the grieving partner.  My dad had written a Will and there is my sister and I.  My dad had divorced and re-married (whole other story there).  He laid everything out in the Will.  His wife tried to hide how much money there was but my sister just forged ahead and wouldn't let the wife get away with it.  As for all my dad's belongings, well she gave them all away without barely a thought to us.  So I think my sister got a pair of shoes and I took his jacket and a couple of shirts.  She gave everything else away to his friends (so she told us).  My daughter only wanted one thing - a cheap Christmas bell that she loved dearly.  No we were told she wasn't going to go into the locker and touch anything, and that was 6 years ago.  Needless to say communication and connectiveness pretty much stopped there.  Who knows why people behave the way they do, but the sorrow they cause will come back to them, if they have any conscience at all.

Take care and hang in there, you are all strong and wonderful and loving.

When tomorrow starts without me
Don't think of me far apart
For every time you think of me
I'm right here in your heart.
