Hi Violet,

Thank you for your response - I'm so sorry for the sudden loss of your beloved husband, too.  I'm definitely a newbie here and didn't even know there were profile pages!  Guess I should get to work on mine :)

I hope you're doing well and have continued support around you.

Hi Brenda, thanks for the request. I'm not a shamed of my faith. I know things could have been way worse were it not for my daily devotions. I look forward to speaking with you or listening if you ever need a friendly ear. Keep Smiling

Hi Brenda.  We're almost, well maybe not quite, neighbors; I live in Lorton, VA.  That's about 15 miles south of DC down I-95.  My husband died almost 2 years ago, on Jan 24, 2011, of pancreatic cancer, after a really tough 2 year battle with the disease.  I think my head is getting more squarely back on my shoulders at last, but I'm dreading that anniversary date this year.


Love your dogs.  My daughter had a long haired black cocker some years ago and the fuzzy dog reminds me of him.  He was an oaf but quite loveable once he got to know you.  Now she has an elderly 110 pound yellow lab. 


Please tell us more about yourself.

Hi Brenda, nice to meet you.  I'm not ready to talk yet, but in the future, maybe we could chat about the awfulness that is end stage liver disease.  I'm glad I found this site, and I'm glad you did too.

Hi Brenda,
Looks like we are from the same location. I'm new to this website but just wanted to say hi. We have a few here from our area. I'm sorry for your loss and hope your journey through grief finds healing and hope.

Welcome BrendaLM: I'm sorry for your loss but I'm glad you found your way to this site. I hope you will find the same comfort and understanding here at Widowed Village that I have. In the beginning I just read the blogs and posts and lurked in chat. Post and join us in chat when you feel comfortable. It is nice to be among people who "Get It".
