"I'm not sure if it was this group or not, but I read a comment yesterday on this board about society seems to give more support to single mothers than widows with children. I feel that way too."

Hello, thank you for the comment and friend request. I am trying to be strong but I miss my Ricky so much and now knowing he could still be here had I taken him to a doctor or hospital has me torn up. He was my best friend and the greatest husband, why couldn't I have been a better wife and gotten him help. I know he didn't want more medical bills since he didn't have health insurance but I should have made him go...

Thanks Dianne for the comment.  The kitty belongs to my folks, they are just head over heels in love with her.  They gave her a Finnish name, It's Kisa which I guess means the cat. Anyway, thx for reaching out to let me know you like the pic.

My Roses Oct 21st

As many of you liked the poem re Wes   called he came in a dream.  You can see my photos of him and of us both on my photo page.  He was holding me in his arms and gazing into my eyes. His love  and tenderness shows - even though he  was recovering from a   serious operation.

When I read your story of how he had died & at such a young age it mAde me HURT on the inside for you:(. I wish we--our spouses & I-- could die together at an old age or the Rapture would occur & we would arrive in HEAVEN at the same time!! My husband, we were married 28 years,John died April 25,2012,age 48 from ALS/Lou Gehrig's Disease & YES it was HORRIBLE!! I have 1 daughter,Ariel, 22 who lives with me:) while taking courses in College to be a teacher. And I worry sometimes if I'm making the right decisions!!, I live in NE Alabama & I'm 50 now. I worry sometimes if I'll ever have someone special to share the rest of my life with! I miss John---I'm doing ok most of the time:). Write soon! Cathy
