Hi Everyone, Just wanted to say Hi. I haven't been on in a while, but all is fine. Rich's 10th year of being gone is coming up Aug. 1st. Still miss him as much as I did 10 years ago if not more. Life goes on for the rest of us, but it will never be the same. It was good seeing some familiar faces/names. Take care and stay well. Hugs!!

Hi's been pretty quiet here so I wanted to check in on you all.  Hope all is well and you're enjoying your summer

  Hi everyone..yes, things are better…June 17 will . Have been my 55th anniversary! We went to RENO. NV to get married in a tiny chapel..but family and friends went with us..about 4 cars of people. It was a lot of fun. So much has changed..but still the same.One of the most positive things in my NOW life:  I am completely in charge of that life!  I make my own decisions,  can do anything I choose, cook what I like, etc. Between Bob and my parents, I was always told to do things THEIR way. I like this aspect of my new life..just me, and RUDY the wonder kitty!  I wish everyone a nice weekend.

Hello all. This is a test to see if I can still post.

I love what you wrote saying that no matter how much time passes, we're all still connected and always will be.  I know I haven't been on much lately but believe me, I think of you all every night.  I like to take time every night to thank God for all of the blessings in my life.  For instance, instead of my focusing on losing Ken, I'd rather thank God for the blessing of being his wife and the 30 years we were able to spend together.  Among those blessings is his leading me here to my Legacy family.  Without all of you, I would have never made it this far.  I need to do better about checking in more often.  I miss everyone.

Hi Chicago,

It's good to hear from you although I've been absent myself lately.  I hope that through the sadness of yesterday you were able to remember the happy times.  I have no doubt your angel was by your side.
