Karen, having been on this long, dusty, painful trail for six months and counting, you are in my prayers. This is a trying time. I am still answering questions and running into people who I, in my shock at Lawrence's…"
"Nancy, it's so good to see your remarks and to see that you are still fighting. Faith, anyone who says you lost Paul because of something you did or did not do when you were younger is using verbal witchcraft, and you should disregard…"
"Hi, everybody. I thank all of you who prayed for me during this period. This is the first birthday without Lawrence. The days leading up to it were difficult, teary, and just plain miserable. As many have said, the…"
"Faith, my heart breaks for you. I have only been on this long, winding journey of grief since June 8, 2012. I've learned a few things. It takes time, a lot of time, to get to even a month. The anger goes and…"
"My dear friends, I missed all of you. I have been away for about a week or so dealing with the debris the death angel leaves in its wake, probate and cleaning out things and all that sort of stuff. I am so GLAD all these parent days are…"
"Betsy, thank you for requesting to be my friend. We all need friends now more than ever. This group has been a big part of my road to healing, if that is even possible, but I pray it is. You are certainly in my prayers. This…"
"Betsy, it is tough. The throngs of people that were around when Lawrenced died thinned out very soon after the funeral, but I was blessed to have a very loyal core of family and friends who were sincere. They were not scared off by my…"
"Janice, I am so proud of you. Yes, give old grief a kick in the pants. I've been waging a knock-down-drag-out battle with it ever since the first month. I didn't realize what was happening to me, but the wonderful guys…"
"Maggie, yes, dear lady, you are over-reacting because your grief is compounded. Losing Dave and then losing your friend, that's a lot while you've had to deal with legal battles, loneliness, and a whole lot of confusion. Be…"
"Sandi, I'm glad I made you feel better. Words and an ability to write well came from my maternal grandmother; it was one of many gifts she gave me. As for God, my parents taught me when I was very little and couldn't understand…"
" Vee, Sorry I haven't been on line, but last Friday my machine went down and I had to go and get a new mother board, and a power supply. It took me a couple of days before I was able to get everything connected to the new mother…"
"Sandi, we all have a common bond, loss. We have lost people who really, really matter to us. We may be in different geographic locations, they may have left us by different carriers (i.e., heart attack, cancer, stroke, suicide, or…"
"Julie, thank you so much for understanding. I guess I misunderstood you about seeing Charlie's mom. Truthfully, ever since I visited the cemetery last week for Memorial Day and put flowers on Lawrence's grave, I have not been…"
Vee, Sorry I haven't been on line, but last Friday my machine went down and I had to go and get a new mother board, and a power supply. It took me a couple of days before I was able to get everything connected to the new mother board.
I have been thinking about you, and have been praying for you. I know everything is so fresh for u. But take your time, no body can tell another person on how long they can grieve. There are so many stages, that I just kinda go back and forth.
I've had a hard week this week. When things go wrong, I lways knew that Arthur would take care of it. So, I've been going through a slight depression this week, and have spent most of the week in bed (: crying and wishing I could turn back the clock, to the night Arthur told me how much he loved me, I sometimes wish all of this is a bad dream... I miss him so much that I feel like 1/2 my heart is gone. and I want him back so bad. TO HEAR HIM SAY "I LOVE YOU BABY", THANKING ME FOR BEING A GOOD WIFE". and I can't hardly remember what that day was like, There are so many whats, why's, if's. People tell me all the time to move on. My older sister called me the other nite and said "Lynn it's almost 6yrs, if you don't move on, you'll be old and alone.
She just doesn't get it. I'm not afraid of being alone. And know that I will never marry again. I truely believe he was my soul-mate, and there will never be another man that can fill his shoes. Ijust wanted to let you know that I'm still thinking about you. And, I pray that God will give you peace, with your memories, and the time that you had with your Husband.
Thank you, Vee...
