This might be a rough time for many of you. Do what you feel you need to do to get through it. Remember, someone is here almost all the time to talk to you.

Mary Jane......Music is one of the ways our loved ones communicate with us. I have no doubt your heard that song because Bob wanted you to hear those lyrics. A few months ago I posted about a particular bad time while driving. I had changed the station and the next thing I heard was a 70's song at part where it said "love will find a way". forget the rest of the lyrics but it was as if Ken was speaking directly to me.
Right now I have lyrics going through my head on a loop. There's a car commercial being played heavily (not sure if it's a national commercial but I doubt it). In the background is a song and the lyrics in my head are "Please, please set... me.. free. Set me free, set me free!"
Marsha.....I haven't had a chance to listen to the song you posted but hope to do so this week
Chicago Beard ... Glad you liked the song. One of my very favorites as it pretty much says it all.
Mary.Jane ... Proud of you for going through what you did and then went shopping to celebrate 'new life.' It's sad memories I'm sure for you, but I'm so proud of you for even attempting the shopping. It's a very good start forward. It's normal to have a melt down when out and I've had many in the past and can still have the odd one if something reminds me of Ernie. Tears are good and release tension.
I understand about funeral homes and how the cost can run up into a whole lot of money so bring someone along with you if you haven't already to help you keep the costs down. I had a Celebration of Life for Ernie and a tea after the funeral (his ashes and a picture of him were present.) I hardly remember any of it.
Don't get me wrong, but you made me laugh a little about 'Marsha's song' and then added some of your own and found out one was from Vampire.
Hope you have a good day tomorrow my friend.
Try to be good! LOL
Good one Marsha!
I came across this song and as I've told some of my wonderful friends on here we have learned so much wisdom, strength, loyalty and love from our spouses and they left such a wonderful gift to us so we carry that torch for them and take baby steps into the future. They are always with us! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_NkRNg0TZOw
I understand what you are saying. I have been trying to move out of our house since this last spring. I have found another place to live but am having a hard time going thru the old house. There are places I still avoid because the painful memories are still there. I long for the day when the boxes are just boxes again.
Chuck....As usual, well written. I can feel the anguish of having to go through yours and Larry's possessions and give you much credit for finding the strength. It's certainly gut wrenching and not easy but luckily you have Steve by your side to go through it with you. Since he's already gone through this exact thing, he knows how you feel. Take a breather whenever you need.
Sending you a big hug.
