Patti, I replied to your post and tried to edit it. Instead, it disappeared. I picked up a new computer on Thursday and obviously need to learn a thing or two or three along the way.

Since I am not sure that my old post is out there, I might be repeating myself. Please know that it is great to hear from you. Your Christmas plans sound like a great plan. Good for you for making this happen.  Debbie

Chuck, It is good to hear from you. I've also been away but want everyone here to know that you each remain in my daily thoughts and prayers. I cannot convey how much I appreciate each and every person here. You help me in more ways than I can convey. I know that I have begun to heal largely through the grace of finding this group. Thank you for being such an important part of that healing. I hope you are having fun and look forward to hearing from you when time allows.

Love, Deb

Georgia, Thank you for thinking of me. It was so sweet and touching of you to toast with a glass of wine. This makes me smile.

I've been away for a bit due to computer issues. My newish Apple began freezing every few minutes. I became so frustrated that I drove to Costco and picked up a new laptop. So far, so good.

How are you doing?  Debbie

It's been quite a while since I last life has changed so drastically still coming to terms with all of it.  I am still waiting for a closing date on the sale of my house but in the meantime I have moved out.  I had to take the help from the kids when I had it so it seemed logical to do it right away.  Instead of buying right away or renting I've moved in with my twin sister and her's been three weeks...all is going as well as it can.  I feel like I'm intruding on their life but truly deep down know that I am just feels so weird to be 46 years old and "living" in a bedroom.  On the 23rd of August was 8 months since I lost my  husband Joe....their are days that it still feels like yesterday - no thanks to those "sad" country songs!  I actually just started listening to the radio again on my long drive into my office - so I'm able to make a commute without busting into tears but it sure takes a lot some days to hold them in.  I may not post a lot on this page but I do read at least once a week keeping up with everyone.  It's so good for me to know that others are in the same boat as me.  I miss Joe every single day - some days are worse than others....I'm grateful for all of you and for my family and friends who are still checking on me.  Joe died on the 23rd of December and I have decided that I will not be staying home for Christmas this year.  I'm going to spend it with some family in Florida and then head to the Virgin Islands until the New Year....I know it sounds like I'm running away and that is exactly what I'm doing....the thought of seeing a decorated tree and not waking up with him on Christmas morning is too much to bear....he loved the snow and the thought of being in snow is just too it's the beach for me!  I hope everyone has a good weekend and know I'm thinking of all of you.

Georgia ...  You are so sweet and it's so good to hear from you.  Thank you so much for having that drink for Deb, myself and our spouses; means a lot.

Hope you are doing well?

Hi Chuck....It's good to hear from you.  I had to read this twice.  When I read "Steve" mention losing Larry, my brain said that didn't sound right.   The second time I read it and noticed your signature.  It's nice that you got away and visited with Steve.  It must have been helpful to you both to talk about Larry and Mark and know the other person knew exactly how you felt.  Let us know about all the fun you had when you settle back in at home.

Love, Sara

My dear Chuck & Steve ...  No need to apologize and of course we miss you, but we know you'll be back bright-eyed and bushy tailed.  LOL  Just have fun in the sun.
