Oh Sara..thank you for posting that for Chuck. (I am deplorable at remembering important days)

That is so thoughtful..I would like to add my good hopes that the days passes with only wonderful memories of Larry.

Chuck.....thinking of you tonight.  I know tomorrow is the 3 yr anniversary of Larry's passing.  Hope you and Steve are well.

As Sara said...we will be here for you.

Deb.....It will definitely be a transition again when your brother moves.  Too bad it couldn't be at the end of May since it's going to be such a tough month.  We're here for you to lean on.

So my brother has been staying here for the past three months after relocating, next weekend he moves into his new apartment and while he will only be on the other side of the highway its going to be soooo quiet again, not looking forward to that, I know I will be fine but May will be a bad month for me. Gregs birthday on  the 2nd then the anniversary of his death on the 12th plus two graduations of our grandkids that he wont be there to attend, going to be a long hard month

Deborah......that was not an easy thing to pack Greg's clothes.  Although it may seem like a baby step, it's really not.  Every "little" thing we do is really a big deal because it's so hard.  I'm proud of you.

Hello Friends, Do you have 10 minutes?  If so, can you please give a listen to my podcast for people who grieve? I need your reactions this weekend for my degree work. Please choose an image -- there are 39 choices -- that speaks to you, then listen to that podcast (which will be around 5 minutes) and message me. The more honest your feedback, the more helpful it will be. Thank you!

Thank you, Marsha H. If you would care to comment specifically on any of the episodes, I'd be grateful. The podcast is part of my degree work. I need to get a draft to my professor by Sunday evening, so the sooner the better. Again, my thanks.

Lisa H ...  Thank you so much for sharing that link with us.  It's so informative and beautiful at the same time.  You have been through so much and my heart goes out to you.  So many of us wish we could wave a magic wand and take away the sadness from all our hearts.

Deborah P.  ...  I know it wasn't an easy task to clean out Greg's clothing from the closet, but so proud you did put them in his dresser.  That's a big start.  There will come a time when you will be able to go through his clothes and give them to charity and there is nothing wrong with keeping some favorite clothing of his.  After 7 years I still have Ernie's work jacket and baseball cap hanging in the hallway and there it stays and I also kept his bathrobe so every once in awhile I can wrap it around me like a security blanket.  So proud of you.
