Hi Barbara,Thank you.My name,Catherine....they used to call me royalty at work...ha ha.I love to read everything,secretly,I've always thought about writing a book.I wrote a lot of poetry in my 20's,Danny found them years ago & was impressed.Maybe that is my purpose?I am glad you are an upbeat voice,I need that.Lets keep keeping on.Hugs,Cathy.
Barbara,Sorry not to get back to you sooner,I wanted to confirm something.If you go onto internet (Google),type in memory of son,highlight images for in memory of son,scroll through pictures.The picture I sent you is on page 2.Click on picture you like and copy to phone.You can type in anything and see images of pictures.
Yes probably too much thinking. Also too much other family stuff that can stress one out, as you know. Sometimes our energy just hits the wall. But I had a group today and although it ended up being a small group - only four came - a lot of personal issues were discussed. I think it proved to be beneficial!
Thank you for caring so much! It is obvious how much you care for others.
Hi Barbara. Thank you for reaching out to me after the loss of my mom and for your reassurance that I did the right thing by my mom to protect my dad's feelings. He seems to be getting more fragile each day. I think knowing my moms family went ahead with "their" service this past weekend without our approval hit him hard. It has made our sometimes combative relationship much stronger. We talk every day now (just like I used to with my mom). He commented today on how nice it's been! I'm not quite sure how this site works yet, but it's nice to have an outlet and to know that others are or have been where I am and they do care. Thank you and God bless!
Hello Barbara,I guess I'm not familiar with how this site works,being that I was never in an online group.If a new member wants to share why they've joined this group (not individual groups),where would they post it?TY
Barbara,I just saw your post wondering how to get a copy of picture I posted,if you go onto internet and type in,Today is your birthday from heaven above,you will see images of pictures and scroll through them,that picture is there.Then take a screenshot.That is how I get the pictures I send here.
Barbara,just wanted to say happy birthday to your son Joe.and to let you know your in my thoughts and prayers.my wish is that your able to celebrate your wonderful son Joe on his special day.one day at a time my friend.sending my love and big hugs your friend Daphne..
Thank you, Barbara, and God bless. Our daughter is Kayla Marie. She is the center of my heart. She is sweet, compassionate, fun,, beautiful smile. It hurts. I know she is in Heaven and today is her birthday. Happy Birthday, Sweetie.
Barbara,It was nice of you to reach out to Douglas.Since you share a common bond with him,you losing your son and him 2 sons.I try to welcome new members,it's a good feeling to reach out to others.You , TC Goodwin and Linda Westbury welcomed me so now I try to do the same.I don't write often enough,I should.
Hello Barbara,Yes I was thinking of a psychic to see if I can find some closure as to what happened to my brother.I need to find some answer.Where did you go when you saw her Sunday? Another question,can I change my profile picture? I tried to do it,but was stymied.I have a Windows phone,so I'm always having questions about doing something.When I needed to update my phone in 2014,my brother had a Windows phone,so he told me to get the same one and he'd teach me the basics.And I'm still learning.I wouldn't change my phone,it's a link indirectly to my brother,I'd feel guilty changing it.Take care for now.elyse
Hello Barbara,every now and then I check the postings and I saw yours when you wrote in about seeing a psychic fro Long Island,Theresa Caputo.Would you give her a good review ? It's ironic,because I was going to post if anyone had ever seen one and would they recommend it to others.I'm starting to post more now,that I'm getting a hang of it,though not familiar with the "Friend" part of it.Maybe you can explain that to me,when you have time,thanx.
Thank you for sharing your story. This grief support site has been more helpful than I had originally imagined it would be. I always find some words of wisdom or maybe just kindness and caring from people that understand what I am going through. Trying to get those close to me to really understand, well that just seems like another mountain to climb and I'm already climbing one! Can't do two mountains at once. I am really sorry for the loss of your son, your only child! So, always know that what ever you post here, someone is getting something from your experiences. Thanks for showing support, kindness, and caring!
