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.

One more week and the Celebration of Life party will be in full swing! My daughter and her family will be in Seattle tomorrow night (4/3/10) from NC. They will be very cold -- it is only 47 today and in NC it is 90. Douglas has been gone for 8 months now. My life has taken many different paths since then and I am still trying to make logical decisions -- which has never been a part of my routine! I know that Douglas is watching over me and guiding me as I struggle with questions such as: Do I retire now or later? Do I move closer to our daughter now or later? Should I go back to school for that ever eluding master's degree? HELP!!!!!!!! I am tired of tossing coins for an answer!

Actually I am pleased to read that Tom is now on the path to healing. We have all been at the beginning of the grief line and are now moving toward the back -- and that is a good thing. I absolutely love all of you on this site. You have been so encouraging, helpful, loving and funny -- "ice cream" -- our loved ones are watching all of this, shaking their head "yes" and smiling. Who would have guessed?

I am planning on lots of pictures at the party on April 10, 2010. Will post!! Happy Bunny Day to you all -- and peace on earth!

Tom, you're in a good place now. Very proud of you. Join me with a big bowl of mint chocolate chip.

I watch others from a distance moving effortlessly in the circle of family and I am angry that their living seem to be intact. I rage at the injustice of death, that anything can be undisturbed, that anyone can go on normally in the face of this event. How is it the others haven't noticed that nothing will ever be the same again? I must be the only one who understands this small yet eternal change.

Linda I feel as though I have lost my strength ( my hero) and hope I have the courage to carry on in his honor
