I understand Roland and me too, I'd give anything for a kiss and hug from my sweetie! ps how often does a person come across the name Roland, but funny enough my son-in-law's name is the same!

....and Pete I agree with you, there's not a thing that I own that I wouldn't throw away to have one more kiss and hug from my wife. Rolland

Carol & Pete..thanks for your words of comfort. My reaction to the loss of the rings are a self defense because I just cant take on anymore grief without self destructing. So it's a decision albeit a tough one for self preservation. Rolland

Rolland I am sorry for your loss! It will be 5 years the end of November I lost my Rose to cancer, it was sudden due to a late diagnosis. I would gladly give up every thing I have to have her back with me.

Dear Roland, I am sorry you lost the rings and to be honest there is no way I would have handled that. I would have been quite distraught as I am an attachment person and would have been devastated. I completely understand what you are saying but I honestly wouldn't have that courage. I am sorry for your loss.

My Wife Janice has been gone for over 2 years now..her birthday would have been October 19th... I always kept our wedding bands on gold chain since her death. The chain broke today unbeknownst to me, and I lost the rings. When I discovered them missing, I was surprised at my reaction, although I am sorry that I lost them, nothing can approach the sorrow that I feel at losing my life partner. So I look at it in a philosophical way, items mean little to me in the absence of my wife. Rolland :-(

Hey there Carol ..  I am so happy I brought a smile to your face.  Sometimes just joking around a bit eases the pain we can all feel.  I never thought I had my wit left or could ever laugh again, but find it's coming back.  The group at Bible Study tell me I make them laugh even when I'm serious.  Go figure!  I ask some hard questions in that group.  I thought they'd kick my fanny out of there long ago.  LOL

I see we have a passion for elephants and I feel the same as you do; they are so family orientated, protect not only their young, but each other (better than many humans do) and the thing that gets me about them is they actually grieve and cry tears.  It breaks my heart.

Don't worry about going forward and a little back as I've had days like that and it could be the up-coming holidays.  Sometimes we just don't know which end is up.  I am so happy you got to talk about your Jack to that nice lady.  It does help.  The lady that has the Bible Study in her home lost her husband a year ago and we were drawn together like magnets.

We've got to get that lunch together as I think we'd have a good time.  I doubt we'll get snow this year.

Had my nephews over and one of their girlfriends for a movie and they love the goodies I make.  I had a nice roaring fire going in the fireplace and we had a great time.  Little stinkers were talking about age and looked at me (always teasing me) and I just quipped what Kathy Bates did in 'Fried Green Tomatoes' .... 'I'm older and have more insurance.'  LOL  We had some good laughs, but after they left I had a tear or two start and I had to slap myself a good one.  I have no idea what brings this on.

I hope things are going well for you and you have a great weekend.  I'll be checking out Legacy throughout the weekend if anyone needs to just talk. 

God Bless & Hugs

Dear Georgia ...  Thank you so much for the nice compliment.  It comes at a good time because I imagine many of us don't get that many compliments and can feel alone.  Trying to find a new life is not easy when older. 

God Bless you!

Oh Marsha, you always bring a smile to my face! I love the visuals of you on the broom! Lately my countenance looks like Stephen Harper! Yeah Justin by the way!
Speaking of elephants, now that's a Segway! I love elephants too:) they are so family oriented, so caring and protective of each other and truly they never forget. I saw a video of two elephants that had known each other 30 years prior and both were rescued but at different times and met again in the same sanctuary. Oh it was a beautiful thing to watch them reconnect.
So glad more steps are being taken to protect them.

Well I've been doing the two steps forward and one step backward dance lately but hoping it's just a blip before the holidays. I had a nice opportunity to talk about my darling to a lady at the bank today and it was nice indeed.

Sendings hugs to all. Please hang bin there, you aren't alone and can feel comforted being here. I am truly sorry for all the losses and think of you all.

God Bless.
