It makes me feel better to think that maybe something I have said in some small way has helped you. This is what I found here right from the start almost 4 years ago. I know what you mean, that hearing about everyone's sadness and…"
I have to say right from the start that I felt exactly what you are feeling at the same point after losing Larry. As the date grew nearer of the first year anniversary of Larry's passing, feeling exhausted and often mentally…"
"Dear Marsha,My friend, your pain comes through and is felt by us all. The sad confluence of so many losses is enough to break, or at least bring to our knees, even the strongest of us. You, our Angel, have been such a source of strength and support…"
What a lovely photo, and an even lovelier idea to have Greg's ashes kept nearby in the lighthouse overlooking the pond. This is one of the most beautiful ways of keeping our spouses with us I have heard.
I'm glad that…"
Thank you my friend. Yes, wouldn't we all give anything for another road trip, or conversation, with our lost loves.
It's amazing to me that whenever Steve and I are in the car, him driving always, I have to restrain myself from…"
"Dear Diane C,
Thank you for your kind words about my post - I have taken a while to get back here and reply to comments, but your thoughts are so much appreciated!
Be well, and have a peaceful day -
I know how difficult this month will be for you. Your plans to have dinner tomorrow with your girls to remember Greg's birthday sound like a very good thing to do. Every year when Larry's birthday approaches I find myself…"
I saw your post days ago, but until now haven't read it. First, I am so very sorry for the loss of your beautiful husband Mario. Becoming a member here on Legacy can be a bittersweet experience - joining a family who can be…"
TELL ME AGAIN
As you watch the still-bare trees go by through the car window the sun feels warm and relaxing on your face. Early spring can be a beautiful time when the weather is good. You wish you would be home this weekend cleaning up…"
comforting that he relies on you both to help without feeling like he’s imposing. After all, you really are more family than some of your relations by blood. Back on the road, you start remembering the arguments that erupted at…"
Forgive my using a blanket post to reply to everyone - thank you to you all who commented on the plaque. I didn't say so before, but somehow on the day last fall when I was sent the photo via email of it in place and told by…"
It's been so long since posting that I had to reset my password! I had replies I had wished to post to so many of your posts, but it seemed time or circumstance always kept me from doing so. It is good though to now see many familiar…"
I just wanted to say that I can relate very well to your words, and remember being asked when I was in the hospital being informed that Larry had passed many questions about his wishes, my wishes, etc. For weeks this seemed to be the…"
"Dear Debbie R
I am sorry for the loss that brought you here, and truly feel that the caring people I have met through this family has saved my sanity and my life.
I haven't posted for awhile, but your words compelled me to pop in again letting…"
Hi Chuck. I hope this works. I am still not familiar with my IPad...I was soooo happy with my XP...but then I had to get a new Windows 7.5 or 8 or whatever it was, and finally had to switch to wifi...(I knew it was just a way for Big Brother to watch you LOL...yes I am an x hippie...hope that doesn,t bother you. And, no, I could not afford an IPad..when Bob got sick, my daughters boss Bought me this! Her father had died of cancer, but she was able to FaceTime him across the miles b4 he died and she wanted to do the same for my daughter. Ironically he died the next day after it arrived and we never got to use it.
I am going to make each of my posts short so if I loose them here, I won,t have poured my heart out for nothing.
I HAVE to tell you why I chose YOU to befriend...it was your PICTURE! I am guessing that is you and Larry? I took one look at that picture and to me, it looked EXACTLY like one of those pictures that come with a frame you buy in the store. It was wonderful. Which person are u? You will have to excuse me if I get information wrong...I have a very hard time focusing on who is who. Steve is your new love, right?
You can swear all you want with me. I don,t care. Words only have power if u let them. Ok I am going to see if this posts..if it does, I will send u a second post about who I am than you for responding.
Hi Chuck. Thinking about you. Haven't seen any posts from you recently which has me worried. I'm aware you have health issues but if you're able to, please check in. I'm sending extra prayers your way.
Chuck,Sorry to hear of your losses as well,especially last April of your husband.We all share similar feelings and I'm glad that I've found this group,I can say whatever may be on my mind without judgment and even if no one responds,it's good to release it.Some people/ family don't know what to say so I usually respond with I'm ok when anyone asks.elyse sister of Lee 6/13/59-5/28/14.I posted on the main wall a suggestion of each member posting this at end,so we can send a remembrance to each other,I thought it was a nice gesture,what do you think?
