I am so sorry for your loss of your beloved Mark. I lost my husband Larry two years ago April 22. Today I visited the plot where his ashes are interred for the first time in these two years, and was feeling quite emotional and unsettled…"
I don't have words to express my shock and disgust at the comments made by your nephew - actually, I do, but they would be censored here.
As you always know, and can see form all of our posts, you are loved and appreciated here by…"
I’m sorry I didn’t do more to make you see the doctor when it all started – I’m sorry I wasn’t more there. I was frightened right from the first day you asked me to look at the sore on your ear, as if I knew it…"
This month, having two anniversaries for you, will undoubtedly bring forth many emotions and tears - I'll be thinking of you and sending many prayers your way.

"Dear Mary Jane,
You have just solved the problem of some of my own disappearing posts - thank you! I wrote something on page two this morning, then lost it completely. I will now try again on the first page.
See, you're helping us all out…"
This is a rather poignant anniversary of sorts for me. Two years ago today Larry rushed me to the hospital where I was admitted to e ICU. It was questionable whether I would live. Seventeen days later I lost my sweet man, who passed…"
Larry and I were both confirmed smokers - I was since age 17, and was up to three packs a day when he came home from the doctor 20+ years ago and dropped a box of nicotine patches on the kitchen table. He had gone for treatment of his…"
I so hope that Tootsie's problem is easily treated, and you and she are in my prayers. Also I pray that your advisor finds some place to coax more funds for you - being "forced" to sell your home is never easy, but for us…"
"Dear Mary Clough,
Like everyone else here, I relate to your feelings of depression, and has been said several times already, no apologies necessary ever here with this family - we all know this pain as Roland so well expressed.
Yesterday Steve and I…"

You are always one of my enthusiastic cheerleaders - thank you for always encouraging me to express myself - I feel as though I have a purpose and future because of you my sweet sister, and because of all my family here who make me…"
Your photo most definitely brightens my day - thank you! I think Paul may be already telling you, through your daily thoughts about moving back to Ohio, that your dispersing his belongings however and whenever it feels right is what…"
I'm glad the song spoke to you as it did to me - Steve and I were watching the TV series "Six Feet Under" which Larry and I had bought on DVD, not having cable in the house. The series confronth death and grieving in all…"
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?
Chuck, my new friend......As far as I'm concerned, you're just a man going through the same heartbreaking loss we all are.....the loss of our soulmates. I too was apprehensive about posting on a forum such as this for the same reason, how do you know what/who is real or fake. I came to realize very quickly through the comments I read that we are all very real and offering helping hands to each other.
One of Ken's good friends is gay and has been with his partner for over 30 years. They were lucky enough to get married a few years ago. Ken and I would go out with them in the same way we would any other couple. We would go to dinner, walk around a lake near us, go out for an ice cream etc. We would talk about the same things anybody else would. It was of no concern to us what other people may have thought. I want you to feel comfortable and safe here. Love is love and that's it. Gay or straight doesn't matter.....at least not to me.
Just in case you need me to discuss something more personal with your grief here is my email: Maday1@shaw.ca Please, don't feel you need to email me as I know some people are very private and I would never be offended.
