Helen - so sorry to hear that your appointment didnt work out. Thats just not right . If it were us not showing they would have a problem.
Patricia - I can relate a bit of not knowing where you fit in. I too find myself wondering where I fit in now in this life.
Wilela- Happy Anniversary to you, I hope the day goes on and you able to look back on the memories and make it though this tough day. Mike and I have one coming up Dec 15, would be 34 years, so my heart and thoughts are with you today.
Diane - thx for the post and the encouragement. I am thankful for the ones here that help to lift up another when they are feeling down.
Carol- thanks for sharing the memorial service experience with us. That must have been tough in more than one way for you. Glad you were able to go.
Wilela ... I pray you got through the day as best you could. I have been thinking of you. Know that many of us feel the way you do on those special occasions whether we keep ourselves busy or not.
Wilela -- thinking of you. Hugs
Carol -- My husband served in the British Navy. I will never forget the time when we visited the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Washington, Chris wept as we witnessed the ceremony of the changing of the guards -- and when we went to London, he proudly led me to the memorial for U S soldiers . He was proud of his service and one of his recent thrills was when our town recognized veterans -- and posted his picture along with our local U S veterans. I have that picture -- it is on the first page of an album i made for his memorial -- along with a picture of the ship on which he served. Chris became an American citizen in 2002, but he was also a proud subject of the UK. He always supported our troops as well as those of Canada and the UK -- I am so proud of him.
I went to a Remembrance Day service yesterday (Veteran's Day in the U.S.). It was very touching, I cried. My husband Jack and I would go, not always as he had broken his back and couldn't stand for great periods of time, but he tried really hard and while my dad was alive, I know he appreciated it greatly. So they were mentioning about groups laying wreaths, they mentioned a group my husband worked for, that made me cry and be sad. Even so I am glad I went because it was a beautiful service. We will never forget.
Wilela, just thinking of you on your day, and hoping you were able to get through it and perhaps have some nice memories. We will never ever forget or long for our loved ones.
