I am so sorry for the loss of your wife Bridgett that brings you here to this group. I lost my husband Larry in April of 2015 to cancer. We were told in the early Fall of 2014 that he was terminal and he agreed to enter a trial of an…"
Wow, do your words ring incredibly true and familiar to me. Yes, indeed I felt at one time like I was stuck - a very appropriate word - and wasn't getting or going anywhere. I second Steve's sentiment that you are going…"
We heal each other here, and in so doing find that we are healing ourselves. I have found this true since the first time I posted. I am glad my words are helping to bring you some comfort my dear friend - yours have done so for me more…"
I want to thank you - for your thoughtful and loving reply to Steve, and for the way you so honestly and sincerely shared with us all your fears and anxiety during this nightmare in which we find ourselves. No, you couldn't offend…"
I apologize for not acknowledging your and Greg's anniversary - what a lovely picture of you two!
The end of August and beginning of September are "loaded" calendar days for me - I proposed to Larry on Aug. 27th in 1983…"
Once again it has been quiet here, and I sincerely hope that isn't an indication of family having any health problems - and you are my legacy family.
Welcome Dr. Gayle, and I do agree with your comments, but my…"
I am so sorry for your loss of your husband that has brought you here to this site. I found this safe place to seek comfort and share my feelings in 2015 and it honestly is the only reason I am now living my life and coping with my…"
"Thank you Deborah and Mary Jane,
I am feeling a bit more focused and peaceful this weekend - perhaps it is trying to limit my exposure to the news combined with diving head first into some in-progress projects for my doll collection. They are…"
Sunday was supposed to be the Tony Awards - Larry and I always, and I mean ALWAYS watched. The fact that it was cancelled this year was for me a very severe gut punch, partly because it again emphasized the serious ways our lives…"
Indeed that empty place within each of our hearts can be overwhelming. Is it because of all that's happening, or just because I am getting older and more nostalgic and emotional? I don't know, but anniversaries and holidays…"
"Hi Mary Jane and all,
Mary Jane, I am with you - more than a little alarmed by the fact that there seems to be a somewhat collective desire to believe something that isn't yet supported by facts here or abroad. When told that safety precautions…"
I am so glad you are well - unlike Mass., here in Texas they are all gung-ho on getting everything up-and-running as soon as possible...hang the consequences. Steve and I are more than a little concerned about that, but unfortunately…"
Wow, with all the things in your life associated with this month I would also wish to skip it altogether. Isn't it a bit sad that as we live longer and longer the calendar year fills with more and more days associated with loss…"
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?
