"Dear Steve, Marsha, Charles, and Chicago Beard,
Thank you so very much for these words of encouragement; it really means a lot to me! Especially coming from an artist--Chuck. Legacy is such a wonderful site, everybody is so good about helping other…"
You are giving me too much credit calling me an artist! I am just an amateur and a beginner. I missed Alaska and Joseph and my life together there that I wanted to paint Alaska landscapes as a way to comfort myself. Here are a couple of…"
Yes, me too, I laughed at your funny story with your cousin who brought a bagful of raw vegetables as her contribution to the big, family gathering. It makes you wonder why people are so clueless! It's always good to hear…"
"Dear Deborah Peck,
I'll be holding you in my thoughts and prayers tomorrow as you face your beloved Greg's first birthday in heaven tomorrow. Sending you healing thoughts. Planting the mimosa tree is a great way to celebrate Greg.…"
How nice to receive your friend request! I'm still getting used to the fact that we can do that with other members - I'm just not well-versed in "cyber-communication" I guess! My email address is :…"
"Dear Trina ... My email address is: Maday1@shaw.ca

You are always honest and open and your stories always draw me in. I haven't checked in here for some months now, but when I see you post, I read them. First of all because you are such a generous and giving person, and you were…"
"Dear Marsha, hi,
I wanted to drop you a line privately, but was unable to do so because of some change in the setting. I just wanted to say hello and touch base. Wishing you good luck for the dating site! Hope you meet the right person.
"Dear Mary Jane,
I have been in Bangladesh for the past two months taking care of my mentally handicapped brother (it is a responsibility that I share with my three other siblings) and have been overwhelmed beyond measure. That's why I…"
"A belated Merry Christmas to all on this site. Hope that Christmas was at least bearable and everyone had some respite from our usual state of sadness.

Very glad to hear that your surgery went well and that you are not feeling too much discomfort. Hope your heeling goes better as each day goes by. Sending prayers so that your pathology report comes out negative, clean. "

I tend to be like you and only check Legacy when I see certain names, but I check my email much more regularly. You are one of the people I always read because so much of our communication has been so healing for me, and I hope it has been also for you.
Dear Trina ... My email address is: Maday1@shaw.ca
No pressure if you don't want to email me, but hope to hear from you. I do care how your life is going and I am so very proud of how you are taking charge of your life as best you can. Joseph is watching over you.
I hear you Trina, these whole year has been surreal, I look at the place where Pablo used to sit & still can't believe he is no longer here with me, I miss him more & more everyday, I can't stop crying, I feel the same way, why couldn't I have left with him, I want to be with him again but then I think that it would be devastating for my sons & sister & now my first grandson, it would be too hard for my sons to also lose their mother after having lost their father, never in a million years did I envisioned my life without him, I always thought that we would grow old together & now that both my boys were married, we had started to enjoy going on vacations more often, now to never be again, I simply don't know how to live without him, I also feel guilty because too many things were left unsaid because I thought I had more time to tell him, I sure hope he can listen to my words & hear what my heart feels, sorry for my rambling on & on, having a pretty bad day & not looking forward to tomorrow or the next few months for the matter, I sure hope we can all find some peace at one point in our lives.
Sorry for your loss Trina, this was also my first Christmas without my husband, he's been gone for 10 months, my first holiday without him was just 5 days after his death, it was Valentine's day, I know exactly your feelings, we all here do, one way or another, sorry you had to come to this forum but it has helped me a lot knowing I am not crazy & that I still cry every single day since he died, I had to also go thru what would have been our 34th wedding anniversary in October, & next month, both our birthdays with his anniversary death on February 9th, I wish you some peace & send you some hugs, we all need them.
