Lori thanks for the friend request. That picture is quintessential Mark. Video camera around his kneck, Hawian shirt, and smile. He always had a spring in his step when he was outside exploring new sights. This was taken after we took a LONG hike down a very steep hill with our two sons and three of their friends last summer. It was a beautiful place where we had planned to try camping this past summer - but that was not mention to be :-( Maybe when the boys all get older I will be braver and strong enough to go back and do it. For now the memories of that wonderful day will have to suffice.
I hope the next crisis is a long way off (((hugs))). I'm glad you have such a great support network! My family and most of my friends have been wonderful, we're both in counseling, and we start grief support through Hospice on the 7th. Just in time for a rocky month full of 'firsts'....my birthday, our wedding anniversary and his birthday are all in November....and then the holidays : ( Are you planning to celebrate your holidays in the usual way, or are you doing something different? We usually went to my mom's one day, his mom's the next; I'm debating skipping all of that and flying back to California with Randy to be with friends.
Thanks so much for the friend request, Lori. I also have 3 children, mine are all boys, 21, 18 and 11. The older two live on their own, the little one (Randy) is with me. My Rodney was a stepdad to them (a really GREAT one, Randy considers him his Dad), we were together three years and were just married last November. How are your girls doing???
Hi Lori...welcome to WV, so glad you found us. I found it just a couple of weeks in, and it's been a lifesaver for me. The chirps you're hearing are chat, the window is in the bottom right of your screen. Hope to see you there soon.
