Just a reminder to all of you over these next few days. The weather reports all over are talking extreme heat. Those of you out West have even warmer temperatures than here in the Midwest or East. Please keep well hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Hopefully all of you have air in your homes. If not, please find a friend or relative that has air and see if you can go there. Otherwise, find out where the cooling centers in your neighborhood or town are and use them. Please take care not to over exert yourself and check in here.

Hi Everyone, I would also like to Thank Steve for starting this site. I just happen to stumble across it when I was very down and out. I just needed somewhere to turn to talk to others who were in the same predicament that I was. I remember being so happy to have found some very nice friends here. I was given (and am still getting) some very good sound advice. I too am very sad for the reason that we are all here, but I am so glad that you started it Steve and gave us all a soft place to land. I thank all my friends on here too!!!

Thank you, Jane P.  I'm glad to know she's OK,  I was worried about her.  She has a way with words to answer the new widows/widowers.

Marsha is alive and kicking but like the rest of us she has her ups and downs.  Jane P.

I haven't see her post lately and she always
post. Maybe she just needed a break..

Has anyone heard from Marsha H?  I'm worried about her.  I've sent her two e-mails and no reply.  That's not like her.  I see on this site that she hasn't posted since the first of the month.

Steve This site helped me to navigate my grief. It is the main thing that has gotten me through. I learned so much and am very grateful to your and you lost love for the opportunity you have presented here. I am not here very often but I do keep tabs and have made some good friends. I only hope I have been half as good to others as they have been to me.

Hi Steve,

I know how many people joined this group that we now call friends. I'm sorry and sad that you had to start this. But the way I look at you saved all these lives.I for one don't have family and coming here letvme know what I was feeling is normal. So many people don't understand the pain of losing a spouse but here we all understand whats in our hearts and thelloneliness, fear and many more which I would be writing forever. So thank you Steve you saved my life for sure. God Bless you

Hello Steve, I can recall when I joined it was in the 900's.  It's alternatively good and sad that so many of us are here.  Good to have the support and kindness provided and sad because naturally for us to be here means  we lost someone so special in our lives.

Thanks again for beginning this page Steve.

Hi everyone,
Well, we have hit a milestone which I am not sure how I feel about it. We hit 1200 members today.

Thank you have to do something for myself for a change, its also helps out in the future. I'm glad Abby is doing well also we are to  real fun stage ten million questions and some bizarre answers back from what I ask him.
