Gw, Good for you to quit a group that doesn't fit you. and what does she mean "you are looking for grief?" We don't need to look for it.

I think those simple unexpected days were the best. We loved just to take off and just see where the roads would lead us. I wish he were here to go for ice-cream with me - it is hot here.

the 4th of July always makes me think of our first summer together where we'd zoom through the night and see fireworks from at least the city and 2 different towns sometimes..... on two wheels of course so we could get around quicker.... he's always be on vacation  and then take the next week off for his b-day.... we'd usually not travel but go out on day trips on either the bike or the boat..... simple days .. feeling so gosh darn lucky .... and  now its all gone...... at the 2 1/2 yr mark...oh I quit the widows group at church... it was just not for me... ( after I was told by one of the members I was looking for grief?)

OH yeah Katpilot, I have had allot of those groundhog days. I wake up feeling so lost and upset and I don't have the faintest Idea why..... I don't remember what I dream need to work on that..... maybe it was a good dream like slick  holding  her bills hand I would be so happy to dream that I think it would be wonderful to dream of Gordy at all . So maybe I wake up  upset because I can't or don't remember

mem & Slick

On the day that this happened, my daughter and I had visited the nursing home where my father-in-law lay dying. This was the second loss in a short space of time. She came in to visit him and saw my daughter holding her grandfather's hand crying and talking about her Dad.
