"That's the problem with religion....everyone thinks their way is the only way. She seems petty and with some delight on being mean and thoughtless. We are far to judgemental as a species with no regard to the hurt it can cause. Just look at the…"

Maggie, my husband's and my 35th anniversary is Oct 10. I know you and I will both be sharing some very sad thoughts that day. I am trying to be grateful for nearly 34 years with him but I will be tearful all day anyway and I know you will too. Do know I will be thinking of you too.

I don't know why it should make me feel a little better knowing your poor brain is as stressed as mine...but it does.  Thanks so much.

Maggie sorry about problems with seeing the photos.

I tried this version... just put it into google and it came up.

It has many photos.. the one where we are sitting at a table togther and I am in a blue dress was our first date!

There are 2 albums and you just press on them and it opens up and there is also a photo tribute.

Thank you Maggie for your kind words and for friending me.  Yes, it sure is tough being on your own.  The aloneness is probably the hardest thing to deal with.  One and a half years for you...that's a long time.  At the minute, for me, three months seems like an eternity.  Do hope you have some brighter days and look forward to connecting with you again. Sending you blessings ☼

Thanks for friending me.  It is now 4 months since my husband died of lung cancer. It was a 1 1/2 long battle with his being in hospital for 10 months of it and driving everyday to visit. So at age 72 after spending 42 years together it is a struggle to push myself to find things outside the house as I am normally a reserved person and a homebody. It is good to see other people struggles and knowing I am not the only one finding it hard starting over.This site is a blessing.
