"Hi Melissa, Sorry it didn't work out, but you can be proud of yourself for taking the step to look into it.  Maybe the realtor will be able to find something else in that area.  Or maybe they will decide to lower the price.  Is…"

"Well, that's good that you have someone lined up to board things up if needed.  Now, let's just hope that you don't need him to do that. Take care. Mary"

Mary,

You are so right it is like an out of body experience. I just go through the day  numb  that wayI don’t have to think about him or alives before.  Maybe that’s not the right way to go through it but I don’t know how else to handle it right now. 

  It was so nice to read your comments and your comforting words. It is so nice to be on here and have people tell you their experiences and how they handle it it makes you feel like you’re not alone. 

DIVA70 Right about so many things it was nice to read her comments. I just hate that we have to be on here but this isWhere our lives lives took us. 

Hugs Judyrose
