Missing Carolyn, sorry for your loss. Hope you get as much out of this awesome group as I have. Here you will find we all "Get It". I don't know what would have happened to me had I not found this group. If you have any questions & want to message me I'll do what I can to help. Take care. Doug

Welcome missingcarolyn:  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. In the beginning I just read the blogs and posts and lurked in chat. Post and join in chat when you feel comfortable. It is nice to be among people who "Get It"
