I am finally reading the piece you shared about life being like a train ride. I too find it to be a very pleasant way to view our time here. I also thank you, and all of my Legacy family, for being on my train, or rather for saving…"
"Hello dear family,
I ask a rhetorical question, because I know the answer for all my Legacy family is “yes”.
Have you had a thought – a memory – so completely and unexpectedly overtake you that you temporarily lost…"
A friend who is a nurse in a Dallas hospital send this message to me, and I am sharing it here as my New Year's greeting for those who haven't seen it somewhere already.
Steve's surgery on New Year's Eve went…"
I'm sorry you are having a hard time now - you are right that many of us are feeling as you do, myself included. The constant background drumbeat of losses to Covid and the way it has forced us into isolation exacerbates my…"
Just wanted to let you know that Steve is fine and his surgery went very well. We actually had a very pleasant day at the hospital, 100% due to the caring compassionate nursing staff who recognized us and went above and beyond…"
Just letting you all know that Steve is having out-patient surgery this afternoon. This is the second in 2 months, and while there is no major cause for concern, it's still surgery and I hate seeing him go through this again. We…"
I am so sorry for the loss of your husband that has brought you here, and welcome you to our very loving and supportive family. I lost my husband Larry in April 2015 to cancer, and I seriously thought I would lost my mind as I…"
Thank you for the friend request. I am kind of old-school at age 67, and don't partake in any other social media platform such as Facebook, etc. I do find that communicating with my Legacy family is very comforting and I don't…"
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…"
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?
