This might be a rough time for many of you. Do what you feel you need to do to get through it. Remember, someone is here almost all the time to talk to you.

Marsha, 11 years now?
Thank you Trina,
I saw this on FB and felt I should share; it is spot on for all of us. Just wish those that are family and friends understood this.
Good to hear from you always,
Your post about the nature of grief is so very apt! It is stated simply, but it is so very true. There is no closure to grief; you just deal with the loss as best as you can for the rest of your life.
Hope you and Charles are doing well.
Take care. Hugs, Trina
Hi again Jeanette,
After I posted I saw your question - hopefully someone who knows will reply because I honestly don't know the answer -
Has anyone here ever used zoom to chat here?
Very interesting story about Bella. Also, love the Addams Family display.
Dear Mary Jane,
Ghosts and Angels appear in and out of our lives on their own timetable, so when we are expecting them to show up, they tend to disappoint us. The best gifts from them are the ones when we least expect them. The other morning, we were sitting on the sofa and the sunlight from the morning sun was shining tjhru the dining room window blinds and managed to cast what looked like a Celtic Cross onto a small wooden oval carving of two dogs facing each other. This carving hangs just over the fireplace in our living room. The dog in question looks like mine and Marks beloved dog Bella who passed away just before my move up to NJ just 4 years after Marks's passing. The night she died she was weak and to sick to move, laying on her bed in the living room staring out at the patio glass doors. Just before she died, she suddenly sat up sitting and wagging her tail and whining at the glass doors. I asked her what she saw and she just looked at me with her happy face and back to the doors just staring and wining and happy. This lasted only a minute or two then she laid back down and went to sleep. I kept watching her and I got the strongest feeling that she saw Mark waiting for her. I was overwhelmed with happy grief and comfort, falling to sleep myself. A couple of hours later I woke up and discovered that Bella had passed on.
The sun shining on that little carving with a Celtic Cross brought back that memory. Mark loved the Celtic Cross and just about anything Celtic. So, I took it as a message from Mark and Bella. And, once again my eyes filled with tears; but not the hurting kind, these were tears of joy, for two of my loves let me know they are always watching.
I have had other encounters that i will share another time.
Take care Mary Jane, sending you lots of hugs and love.
