Hi Melinda,  I have recording Melinda, but for me, I can not handle listening to them.  I just cry and feel as if they are still here.  However, I believe that helps some when they are missing their loved one - to listen to a recording or even a video of them.  I just go into my memories and smile and hold onto treasured memories.  Also, this site has helped me so much - because I get to exchange my feeling with those here as yourself, Melinda, who always give me comfort with many hugs with your caring memos of support.   Thank you for caring......

I long for a recording of their voices.

Thank you Melinda, --yes, I do strive to take it a day at a time - I know my family will always be in my heart - the emotions go in cycles and my heart aches for their hugs and long to hear their voice.

It gets better in small increments, too small for my liking. The only time I can see the difference in myself is from year to year. I know their Spirit's are waiting for me, time moves quickly for hem, as I continue to languish in despair.

Thank you Melinda, yes - we have good days and some bad days.  Some days are just easier than others.  Right now - I long to hear my Dad voice. Thank you for the encourgement.  Much needed......just feeling blah......

Diamond,  When He returns there WILL be NO more death, as you know. Stay strong with God's promise. I pretend my loved ones have all gone on vacation. I KNOW I'll be reunited with them. It's lonely and hard but I try to stay positive. I think the song was a sign from your Dad because his Spirit is still close to you. Don't despair and stay strong. Giving back is what I think we need to do by helping others. God bless you Diamond, it'll be alright.

Today - I just want to see my family again.  Today is different from yesterday - and the day before - today I heard a song that reminded me of my Dad and it just caused me to just want to cry forever.  How, I long for the day when I will be with my family again.   The promise was given at Revelation 21:3,4 - is a reality - but - how I long for my Dad hug today.  I long to hear my Dad tell me he loves me.   I am missing him something terrible dad...yes, I still miss my dad!

Mark:Prayer of St Francis:: Lord, make me the instrument od your peace, where there is hatred, let me sow your love, where there is injury, pardon, Where there is discord, union, Where there is doubt, faith. Where there is despair, hope. Where there is darkness, light. Where there is sadness, joy. O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek seek to be consoled; to loved as to love. For be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.  Also, John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. Your husband is in a good place and he's patiently waiting for you.

I could use some hopeful verses. I lost my husband suddenly 4 weeks ago. I am in so much pain I can hardly take it. We were together nearly 26 years, married for 2.

It's painful waiting to see my daughter Candace, brother Doug, Mom, Grandma Billie, Ward, Sharon, Shelley, Jim and other relatives and friends. God is my happiness in the future because I'll be reunited with all my loved ones and friends!  I'm right there with you Diamond.
