I love this, and thank you for sharing it with everyone! Indeed it was Greg sending you a clear message that he was close by and watching over you through this ordeal - we all here want to feel that closeness and reassurance. Yesterday I awoke to the classical radio station which I leave on all night playing one of my very favorite and soothing pieces by Debussy - I immediately thought of Larry for some reason and instantly felt a warmth as if his spirit was hugging me. I didn't doubt for a moment what it was, and hadn't experienced that feeling for some time, so it was clear he knew I was stressing about everything from the passing of his ex wife to the virus. Steve also quietly reminded me the other day that next week on the 22nd of April will be the 5 year anniversary of Larry's passing and that this was going on in the background of my mind even if I wasn't aware of it, not to mention the 5 years sober  - he was so very right. He understands completely why I am acting scattered and distracted, which helps a great deal. Steve's birthday is next Monday, and I am baking a birthday cake this weekend and we are going to choose a nearby restaurant that is doing take-out and pick up a nice birthday dinner for him that day.  My gift to him is to spare him for at least one day my cooking!

Thanks again Deborah for the positive energy, and a big hug to you!

Love, Chuck

Have to share this story, when Greg was here he always said he wanted to see a blue jay at our feeders, we don't have them in our area,they are normally further south in Missouri. When he passed I told him if he was around to have a blue jay come to our feeders, since then I would see one every once in awhile. yesterday there were 3  and today there was a huge brilliant blue one at my feeders, I think hes letting me know he is with me thru all of this and knows how much I need him, anyway wanted to share a feel good story

Wow! It looks just like the fields of tulips in Amsterdam...beautiful.

There is a small town around the SF Bay Area, called Pescadero..along the coast near SF.My best friend for 56 years, grew up there..we used to drive up the coast just to view the fields of flowers they grew there. . Just spectacular. I hope after all this thing goes away..and it will..I sort of feel hopeful..people stop urban growth, and greed, and justnlet beauty stay where it should be.
