"A wave a sadness came over me tonight.  The strikes in Syria for some reason just triggered bad memories from 9/11, which also made me think of all those I have lost.   I have been taking care of my brother for the last year after he…"

"@Doug02122014 -   Such a nice photo.   The connection is always there, especially when you have children.  I have not yet gone to see the movie "Coco", but I like the sentiment that we are connected to those who…"

"#dougn52 -  I have met a couple of people who lost their spouses, and when we each found out the other was widowed, we could each talk about our experience without worry.    One of the things that bothers me is too many times when I…"

"Doug- I do not think you are overreacting.   Perhaps it is because we know of very bad outcomes with these type of situations.   Also, I know for myself after my first husband got cancer and then died, I became much less certain things…"

"Patience (Diane).   I agree.  This step-son is a Dr., so I guess he might be a good "target" for a scammer. It just makes me mad to think I might have to deal with something that I believed was closed 15 years ago.  When I…"

Gary's wife,  Hello there,  welcome to WV.  This is an awesome site, and the support is caring and loving.  I joined in May and I am so glad I found it.  It's been wonderful to talk to and get to know people who get "it".  Have a blessed day.

Welcome Gary'swife:  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.
