Ok..I know this is for bereaved partners/spouses...but the last few weeks, I have heard that so many people died...a friend was telling me last night at Bunko... that she knew 4 people that had passed since Christmas, two of them young,and suddenly...and .we were talking about one of our Bunko members, Jan, who was 82, but vital and active... who had been ill a few weeks,..and she died this morning. 

I cannot get it out of my head, as I admired her so much...she was 82, looked about 68...was still working asa hair dresser...and was energetic, and an inspiration to me...but she had been sick..and now she’s gone. 

Also, a young woman I worked with 14 years ago, we were friends, she got throat cancer and passed a week ago. She was only 35 had a hubby and 15 yr old daughter, andnever smoked, then gets cancer. A horrible cancer...she fought for a year. I just cannot wrap my head around HER death, and I am really going to miss Jan..the older woman. I makes me afraid, too. 

I just wanted to vent...thanks

Jeanette ...  If you go to the top on here and over to the left you'll see 'Main' and click on that.  Then you'll see different groups on there and click on the first one which has a couple on there and the lady has a green top on.  Click on that and you'll come to this comment page.

I got an email for Bonny’s post..but I don,t know where she posted it...the responses seem to be from others who signed up to recieve emails.

i cannot click on your links, is probably just me...I have never figured out how to C&P on my IPad.

I have had a friend for several decades who has been thru it all with my family. He cared for my husband when he was ill and for my children (and me). The first thing I noticed about him when we first met was how kind he was. The thing is - I'm not ready to jump on the hamster wheel again. He has let me know that he is interested and honestly I enjoy his companionship immensely and don't want to discourage him. Yes I have told him this but he doesn't back off for more than a week or two. All I can focus on is how many problems there would be in beginning a new relationship right now. I already have most of the benefits so I haven't had to go it alone like so many of you. When I am alone I don't do well. When he is around it keeps the anxiety and depression away........but I realize I am very vulnerable. Afraid to make a bad decision because I am so needy. Anyone else in this circumstance?

I cannot seem to paste into the comment box and I have never quite figured this site out. The other one you refer to Steve is not as secure - but easy to use.
