Sitting here crying. I don't know how I feel about signals from those who have died. But I'm beginning to wonder. My son and husband fished a lot together. So since Jim's death, he has been posting on facebook---The James Derocco River and Puddle tour. 12 months of fishing for dad. It is unbelievable the size of the fish he has been catching. Time and time again. I'm really beginning to believe someone else is directing the whole show. I so want my own signs, if there is such a thing, Any thoughts anyone.

I am having an awful time today. I don't know why , yesterday went so much better than usual. Today I just want to crawl under a rock. I hope you all are better than me. Have a peaceful evening everyone.

Mark,My husband died on 9/13/09.The same week our best friends were leaving to go to St.Augustine.Well of course thet posponed they're trip.S I asked if I could join them when they went in October.I was so glad I did!I just had the best time and it was a distraction for a short time.Of course when I came home I was slammed with reality.But it was a good diversion.We will have to live with this the rest of our lives.Take a short break if you can.

I just survived (if you can call it that) the anniversary of our 56th wedding anniversary. My husband was taken from me one year and 47 days ago. last year I was numb this year reality set in, I cried all week and all weekend. it was also father's day, my girls were sad --their daddy was everything to them and to me too. I miss my husband so much , my heart will never heal....Keep your chin up if you can do something fun and think about all the good times..Hugs.......

If anyone should want, I am on facebook. If I see your name I would accept you. This way if you'd like, you can see all of the pictures I have posted of the whole family. I don't mind at all. The Father's day balloon launch is also on there.

Just wanted to say hi to everyone and give hugs. Hugs are good. Only on this site do we all understand our misery and torment. I never got to say goodbye to my wife but we didnt need to. I only have the flashback of hearing her die and seeing her dead during a nap. I never got a chance to give her the birthday card that night. I have it here at the computer.
It day an angel came to I married her. Little did I know she would become one.
Forty-four years married..but I wanted more. Hang in there everyone, thats all we can do. Its not good I know, but try anyhow.

I thought I had already written this but I didn't see it so here I go again....(You all know what this does to the mind)
The first Father's day without my beloved Harry was very rough at times. My children came over with their families and my parents and sister, brother-in-law and brother were here. 16 of us. I made a nice stuffed shells dinner with salad and garlic bread and of course desserts. After dinner, we did our balloon launch. I called my sister-in-law who lives in La. and she did it with us over the phone. We had white and silver balloons. Some wrote messages and some chose not to. My 9yr. old grandson broke my heart all over again. He wrote...Pappy, Please come down and play hockey with me! Love, TJ.
The little ones drew pictures. We launched them at 6:30p.m. DST and the wind was at a perfect angle to send them up over the house across the street and send them perfectly straight up so that we could watch them for about 10 min. until they disappeared into the clouds!!! It was really nice. The sun was shining and with they weregone. Everyone was thrilled that it went so well and want to do it again next year. After everyone left, there I was alone. I crued just a little and then when I looked t his picture, it was as if he smiled......and so did I.
