Thanks for your encouragement, Linda. Some days I get through ok. In fact, sometimes I think I'm doing better than I should be allowed to be doing considering it's been such a short time since he passed. Then other days it's as if my whole world has crashed all over again. I know what you mean about trying to remember his voice. I had my son-in-law download Glenn's voice from the answering machines and his cell phone voicemail onto a CD so I can have it forever. My daughter also has a copy. She was Daddy's little girl in every way. It's so hard for her even though she is married with a family of her own. One day my son called and when I picked up the phone and heard his voice, for a split second I thought it was Glenn. He sounds so much like his dad. I continued to let him talk just to hear that voice a little longer. I haven't been able to erase his voice from the answering machine. I know I need to, I just can't seem to do it. I haven't gone through his clothes or anything either. I know I should give them to someone, but I just don't know if I can do it yet. I thank God for my kids, their spouses, the grandbabies and my close friends who have been there for me. And I thank God for you, Linda, for reaching out to me in your grief.
May the Lord wrap His loving arms around you and give you peace during this season.
