I must continue to share my sadness, my loss and my lonelyness of Joe. We were not married yet. We intended to start house hunting and getting married after the first of the year. As it turned out I should have married Joe when he suggested it earlier. I had most of my home moved into his. We wanted and needed more room. Joe and I began working hard together to combine or get rid of years of accumulation on both our parts. He told me he finally had a reason to want more in life. That reason…Continue

Reader mail is always gratifying for a writer, which is why I’ve departed from my usual Q&A format to discuss it this month. So many people have e-mailed me about topics covered in this column.

This is not the Gettysburg Address.”
To my shock, many readers taught me a…Continue
My first holiday season without Steve is now over, and I sense myself turning a corner.

I traveled to the DC area to see my younger stepson, his wife, and my 2-year old granddaughter. It was my first trip to see any of Steve's children without him at my side, and there were painful moments, particularly pulling into the parking lot of the…Continue

Just brought in the new year and was sitting on the couch, thinking. This will be the beginning of a whole new year without my granny. Man! I miss her Soooo much! We had our ups and downs, but she was so good to me and took care of me and always made sure I had EVERYTHING I needed growing up.
I'm trying to think of the good times we shared, but it's like there's a big elephant in the room with the thought of her not being with us for a WHOLE YEAR. 2011 is going to…Continue
