Dear Sara,

Time for us always seems two faced - in ways it seems to drag, then conversely we turn around and years have passed. My heart is with you today.

Sara - Sending you hugs and prayers my friend. I am right behind you. Claudia's DOD was 2-14-2016. Not looking forward to the 5 year either. We are here for you - your fellow support team and angels :-)

I'm not sure how it's possible that today is the 5 year anniversary of Ken's passing. To me, it was just yesterday that he left.

Chuck...I'm glad Steve's surgery was smooth and praying for a speedy recovery.  Thanks for posting the message from your friend.  I love it and posted it on my Facebook page

Hugs to you both,

Dear Chuck ...

As a;ways I enjoy reading your posts and as always very well written.  I'm still going to come after you to do some writing as an author!  You have a true gift my friend.  

I pray every night that Steve and you have good health and the surgeries and medical issues are over for Steve.  What the nurse wrote was priceless!  Thank you for sharing.

Love & Hugs

Hello everyone,

A friend who is a nurse in a Dallas hospital send this message to me, and I am sharing it here as my New Year's greeting for those who haven't seen it somewhere already.

Steve's surgery on New Year's Eve went smoothly, and as we left that night I said to all the nurses in the surgical department (to whom we have become familiar faces) that I wished that they be safe and well in the New year, and that, no offense, I hoped not to see them again!

May 2021 see the tide turn on COVID-19, and that other natural disasters take a break! Stay safe and healthy Legacy family.

Happy New Year!  I've decided 2021 has to be my year of hope.  So many things on my list to hope for but first and foremost is health and that's what I wish for my Legacy family.....a healthy and peaceful 2021

My New Years Eve was quiet as well.  I watched the NYC ball drop on CNN with Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper.

Sending my love to you all
