I apologize if our levity may upset some of you. Crying is a release from stress and so is laughter. I try to find something in every day that will make me laugh or smile. It keeps me sane.

My husband was a painter.....LOL! And he was cute! Right now I need a contractor to do some renovations. Single, 60-70 years old, must have a sense of humor.

Like Tom, it would be nice to have a "friend". I did not seek Bo out, he was brought to me by fate. If I'm lucky, fate will be kind to me again.

I just past the 1 year mark, March 16th, of losing my husband, Tom. There are no miracle words of wisdom that anyone can offer to make it any easier for you to bear. The only thing we can really say about it is that you made actally survived a whole year. Keep doing exactly what you are doing...carrying on her legacy. Don't let the world forget her and how much she means to you. I feel like everything I do I do to honor Tom and all that he was and will continue to be.
I wish you peace and comfort in the coming days. I hope the memories bring more smiles than tears. Hang on tight to everything you two meant to each other, that will carry you through.
Marlena (and Tom)
Always and Forever
