Hello my friends ....

This video is about the little Russian girl (now 21 years old) that was blessed with a talent of paintings that are amazing.  I hope it gives you comfort and peace and to know one day we will be with our spouses once again.  Please Google more of this young woman's paintings as it will take your breath away.

Much love & peace

Dear Francis, I am so sorry that you have joined this group of grieving people but know this is a truly caring group who have a lot of good advice and always an ear to listen no matter what you post we don't judge.  I lost my 2nd husband 2 years ago and its still so hard, I still refer to our bedroom as ours, its, his dresser, his sink, and so on. You don't ever have to let go of the love you've shared Its never time to do anything you aren't ready for, I still wear my wedding rings, I still have some of his clothes in our closet, I think its all a personal decision I still go back in forth between yelling at him for not being here and telling him I knw hes at peace. I totally believe they send us signs. my 1st husband did a lot, Greg my 2nd husband not so much but I know when Im at peace hes around more, Please don't fear anything you say on here, Ive poured my heart out to whoever would listen and gotten good advice, have a good day, Debby

Dear Francis ...

We like you too!  It is unfortunate you have to join Legacy, but it's the most wonderful place to be and I don't think I could have made it without all the angels on here.  When one falls the others come forward to pick them up.  Any problem big or small is never to great for us.  We are family here and now you have come to join and be part of it.  I live just outside of Vancouver, British Columbia Canada so time-lines are all different which means someone either the U.S. or little old me will answer your posts.  Feel free to ask or discuss anything you like as we never pass judgement.

Frances, you don't have to let your husband go because he's in your heart and eventually you will get to the point you can smile or even laugh at the fond memories you had together.  Don't second-guess yourself and if you feel he's around you then he is.  Why do I believe this?  Because we were in deep love with our spouses and they with us and spent even one or years together and deep love such as this simply just doesn't fade away.  I will always believe my sweetie is here if I really need him.

Big hug to you

Marsha, Lisa, Sarah,     I wish we had a like button or something.  Thank you for your comments.

  I do need to let go, my logic tells me that.  I am just missing his voice, his smile, his personality so much.  I do have a logical mind.  I do know the rings were too tight, and I acknowledge that I have lost some weight.  I started to at least put my wedding ring on last night, but thought about all those possibilities Sarah mentioned.  In fact two nights before I worried they would have to be cut off.  I don't know if the signs I experience are him, but it gives me comfort to think they are.  I know he would if he could.  Marsha, you are right-too many of us have seen what seems to be communication.  The universe is a might big place, and we know so little.  Lisa, kind of like the idea of multiverse.
