Hi everyone! I know I do not post much.

Today would have been our 42nd anniversary. It just hit me at the gym and I started crying while working out. No one noticed but that would not matter to me anyway. Hope everyone has a great day.

Hi Marsha,

I just want to add my wishes that you continue finding ways to keep busy, and that I completely agree that you never forget the day you lose your spouse. For me it was April 22nd, at 7:00 pm. This was the 7th anniversary for me, and there is so much going on with Steve and myself that the only feelings I had were repeatedly pausing in my mind to ask Larry to watch over us and keep me strong and stable through everything. I will write more later about all this, but for now just know that I send big hugs and as always much love

Hi DJ ...  Thanks so much for remembering.  Can't believe it's been 11 years since Ernie passed away.  Yes, I cried my eyes out as if it was the first year he passed away, but then slapped myself silly and got busy and then took the dogs for a walk and kept busy once home.  I heard on the TV that the first thing you forget about your spouse is their voice and I find that true, but one thing we never forget is the day they passed away.

I hope you are doing well my friend and enjoying life and staying healthy.

Love & Hugs

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,

Dear Steve,

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?
