"They are still asking, I reply, :"just fricken wonderful" and walk on. I'm not this kind of person, but we do, what we have to do. Glad you have a friend that understands. I cherish mine."

Hi IHaftaBeStrong.

Thanks for the friend invite.  Sorry for your loss.   You have in my opinion found the best online grief support group their is.  If I can help you navigate things on this site or on your grief journey please feel free to contact me.   I've been a Widville member all but 2 weeks of my journey.  Without this place I wouldn't be at the place I am today. 

Take Care,

Doug
