Dear Georgia ...  I can't take full credit for the ideas of the balloons and I do believe it was Jane P a year or so ago that urged us to do this.  I find it really helps.  So happy you are doing that and I do it on Valentine's Day and our Anniversary.

Dear Trina ...  So are very welcome.  Just because some of don't feel like posting doesn't mean all of us others don't think of you.  I know just how you feel as I'm retired so try to get out of the house every day.  I leave the TV on just to hear voices when I come home.  I still miss my dear Ernie, but not the intensity it once was.  I still have my cries off and on and of course winter months certainly don't liven the mood. 

Have you ever considered getting a pet or perhaps you have one.  My two small dogs give me great comfort especially when I'm low and keep me moving. 

Remember Trina, Joseph is watching over you so you are never alone.

Carol Kayser, As far as misspellings go, No Worries, I'm quite used to it, as the old saying goes "You can call me anything, just don't call me late for supper" ;-) Rolland

Georgia, Thank you for saying so and thanks for understanding. Unfortunately all of us in this forum understand loss all too well. Rolland

Hi Roland, Iam also very sorry that the chain broke and your rings are missing, maybe they will be found , . I will pray for that. The ad on papers is a very good suggestion, also there is a community post in Ill. Where I live ,maybe there is something like that in your community???
Also as we all know every birthday, anniversary and every holiday is very hard BUT I LIKE TO THANK MARSHA FOR WRITING HOW SHE RELEASES BALLONS for marking the day.
It helps me and I also write a note and tie it on the strings.
Thank you Marsha.
Also when I get the courage to remove some of Louie's shirts I will make a quilt,
I also read this from someone here?.
Thank 's everyone.
It was Louies and my anniversary on the 16th ,
38 years,
I miss him so much.

Dear Marsha,

You are an angel! You are always so kind to the rest of us. Anytime we reach out, you are sure to respond and you respond in an emotional way. So thank you for reaching out to me again.

I've tried very hard to keep it all together since my darling Joseph's passing about 15 months ago. I am still keeping it together in spite of my deep grief, but somehow the everyday grind seems harder to bear. I come home in the evenings after my teaching (I stay on campus for as long a I can) and it's so hard to face the empty house, the empty spot on the sofa, the empty armchair where Joseph used to sit for the last few months of his life. I am finding it harder to keep myself going once I come back home...

So thank you again for reaching out.  

Hugs, Trina

Yes I saw that Rolland, apologies as I spelt your name wrong. Where do you live, which state as that sounds like a southern drawl pronunciation but maybe not. I'm Canadian so I hear things differently lol!

Hi Marsha, I will need to check my page as I'm not aware I was doing anything - curious indeed. I will try again with the email, not to worry, we will figure it out.

Trina ...  Now is not the time to hide in the shadows of darkest, but to reach to someone or on Legacy and let angels lead the way.

Big Hugs

Trina, Thank you for your post, I have to maintain some sort of detachment to keep from beating my head against the wall. Yes, birthdays,anniversaries are tough, as unfortunately you alsoi are aware. I wish peace for you in the coming months Trina. Rolland
