Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you,but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( josephmclaughlin500@gmail.com ) for the full details.Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.

Hi Chaya

Thank you for the friend request. I am kind of old-school at age 67, and don't partake in any other social media platform such as Facebook, etc. I do find that communicating with my Legacy family is very comforting and I don't feel any "exposure" to negativity or attacks - in other words, it's safe here. I need that - I've had enough attacks in my life to last forever, as I am sure you understand.

I do know that as you approach this one year anniversary of Bridgett's passing your anxiety and grief will multiply, as it did for us all. I can only offer that I personally found the lead=up to the day I lost Larry was actually worst than the day itself, mostly because I was so emotionally exhausted that I felt almost nothing. Also, my friends here were a brick wall of support and I leaned on them heavily - I hope you will do the same, because talking to someone who gets it is probably the only thing that keeps us sane after our lives imploded.

Be gentle with yourself, and spare a thought for Steve G> and I today as he is having out-patient surgery today . The story of how we connected on this site would take volumes, but if you'd like to hear it I will gladly share our amazing experience with you. I know Steve won't mind, and all the "old-timers" here already know. There is the ability on this site to go back through past posts for a long time, but it's time consuming and I have saved most of the stories I wrote here during that time. Again, I'd be happy to share them, but don't want to be pushy.

Wishing you peace today, and sending a hug your way from Steve and I

Love, Chuck
