"Michelle, I am glad that you know what will most bring you comfort on the anniversary of the loss of your husband. I am so sorry for your loss. You will also be remain my thoughts and prayers. Debbie"
"Sandfly, You are approaching the anniversary with a great state of mind. I found that the days before the actual date were more difficult for me than the actual anniversary. I spent a lot of time during those days reliving events that occurred…"
"Steve, Thank you so much for the endorsement of the Outer Banks! I am already referring to the area as one on "beach time". They are on a different time schedule and I love it!
I'm checking out two types of homes. One is small…"
"Chuck, Thank you dear friend for the vote of confidence. I appreciate your support.
I'm doing my research and learning a lot about flood zones, flood insurance, beach erosion, etc. My cousins are on my side and are incredibly supportive.…"
"Chuck, Your response could not have come at a more perfect time for me. I love each and every word! Good for you for saving your plant. May it serve as a sign of your own resilience!
I am considering a big change. Last month, my family and I…"
"Marsha, I love your post! I gave myself about a month off from everything except doing whatever I want to do whenever I want to do it. My house shows the lack of love during this time and other times that I've opted to "Just Walk on…"
"An update: Dear friends, I am sorry that I've been absent. I needed time to reflect and regroup and inadvertently distanced myself from friends here and elsewhere.
I was sitting with my unresponsive husband two years ago tonight. I had…"
"Sara, I continue to discover so many commonalities between the two of us. The doctor asked if I wanted a post death medical examination. I asked him if he felt it would help the hospital to have that information. He said no. That made my decision…"
"Sarah, Thank you. I am concentrating today on all of the happy times and memories from our life together. It helps to focus on the positive. We had some amazing experiences and I am blessed beyond belief to have spent so many years with him by my…"
"Marsha, Thanks for your sweet post. I've been absent for a bit. I hit a very rough spot about a month ago as I began reliving the events of two years ago. I gave myself time to just "be". I read the book, Option B, and joined the FB…"
"Chuck, How are you doing my friend? I have been absent for a bit. You and Steve remain in my thoughts as you begin the arduous process of packing and sorting. I know how difficult a process it is to move. It is a challenging and…"
"Michael, I am so sorry for the loss of your wife on your son's 18th birthday. I lost my husband on July 22, 2015. I no longer hear from his family. I initiate contact but hear nothing in return. It breaks my heart because we were close enough…"
Thank you Deb for asking. I wish I could say it was much better, but not really. I miss her more than ever. I pick roses for her first thing everyday. I touch her things and look at her at her pictures. I do try to keep busy. I stay in touch with our families and friends. I volunteer for mission work. I'm just not happy. It seems nothing can make me happy. I see her everywhere. I miss and love her so much. It still doesn't seem real. After a little more than 7 months, it just doesn't seem real. Don't get me wrong. Even though I'm very sad and cry a lot, thinking of her, touching her things, and even talking to her, gives me some comfort. I wish I would have shown more how much I loved and needed her before. Thanks again Deb. You are kind. Danny
