"In my opinion, I wouldn't think of it as a test from the universe - but perhaps it was a sign from Jeanni that she was with you, thinking of you and sharing her birthday with you. She knows that purple is your banner and her favorite…"
Hi Chris, My name is Diane and I lost my husband Dec 3, 2011 in a catastrphic plane crash. He was an excellent pilot for many years, this time the plane had failure and he could not get himself out of the situation, they were coming in for landing and did not have the altitude to work with. I miss him so much. My heart goes out to you.... looking at the beautiful pictures of you and your bundle of joy......it reminds me of my mom that is now 89...when she was in her early twenties she was six months pregnant when she lost her husband on the Russian front line. I myself do not have children, I was married for the first time 10 years ago to my love and we were in our 40,s , we decided not to have children. My mom is now my child, I am her caretaker and we have great times together, she is full of wisdom and joy at times, she is an unbelievable woman. Hugs to you and know you brought a smile to my face in between the tears with your beautiful pictures. Thank you....Diane
OMG can I tell you what a great friend you are.. I am so glad you and I are friends I wish we found each other for different reasons but what a comfort you have become to me. Yes Phil did not choose to go I know that.. he would not have choosen to leave our life together.. It was as grand as You and mark had... we both were robbed.... and how funny that you chose that quote "See babe you could do it" he would call me Babe sometimes... How you saying that made me smile... I am going to map quest it and use the GPS... hopefully I will do fine... I would lie if I said I was not scared..... but gonna give it a shot... thanks.. I am going to just relax tonight or try to and this is not till wednesday so ... got time to get up some courage.. thanks chris... you are awesome
Thanks Chris it was a hard day had a rough weekend and then today one of my sons came after workand we went and ordered the headstone so that was incredibly hard... then my daughter told me she has to get to this other hospital for inservice training on wednesday and while I was the driver for the last 11 years Phil was always my co-pilot as I am bad with directions and such.. so now I am freaking out as to how to get her there and me back home... all my sons have to work wednesday and my sister too I do too but I can leave at 2 to take her if only Phil was still here to tell me how to go... so this is turning out to be a week from hell. she found a bus route but would have to be on the bus for almost 2 hours.. rather stupid... for a 20 minute car ride... so I don't know what the heck I am going to do... glad you had a good day..it is encouraging to me to know that down the road I will have them too.
