I have heard so many wonderful things about some wonderful men and women here.  Many of you have heard all about how perfect for me, my Jerry was.  I love him plain and simple...warts and all!  I love all of his many quirks and craziness. I was…Continue

Jerry and I (OK,  Jerry) was a goer and a doer.  I picked one place I wanted to see with him and we didn't make it.  It was on the long weekend list for this fall.  Had I been more persistent I'm sure we'd have already gone but I'm not a nagger. …Continue

Practical Questions as a NEW WIDOW

Started this discussion. Last reply by Rainy on Saturday. 14 Replies

My Jerry, had me spoiled a lot.  I never had to worry about car issues, house issues etc.   I am evidently really hard on my tires, or maybe it's the South Carolina pot holes that never get fixed.  Anyhow, early on, one of my first thoughts were…Continue

Let's Grumble

I have heard so many wonderful things about some wonderful men and women here.  Many of you have heard all about how perfect for me, my Jerry was.  I love him plain and simple...warts and all!  I love all of his many quirks and craziness. I was reminiscing recently with my daughter and Jerry's daughter and we laughed about what a mess Jerry was.  So, today I was looking around at all of his stuff that I don't have the heart to move yet.  You can't tell of course but I'm typing this with a…See More

Rainy replied to InsideLove's discussion What are your thoughts - which color for new car?
"Inside, my suggestion it's going to be what you want to hear but I suggest holding off on picking out a new car for a little bit longer.  I mean, you don't have to pick out something Marty would love.  You matter too, you are…"

"Mike, your post sounds a whole like what/how my love Jerry thought about losing his first wife.   He lost her suddenly without any warning, so he was in shock.  I don't know all the details but I do know after 7 yrs of struggling…"

Freebird

If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me?
For I must be traveling on, now
Cause there's too many places I've got to see
But, if I stayed here with you, girl
Things just couldn't be the same
Cause I'm as free as a bird now
And this bird you can not change
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
And this bird you can not change
And this bird you can not change
Lord knows, I can't change

Bye, bye, baby, it's been a sweet love
Though this feeling I can't change
But please don't take it so badly
Cause Lord knows I'm to blame
But, if I stayed here with you, girl
Things just couldn't be the same
Cause I'm as free as a bird now
And this bird you'll never change
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
And this bird you can not change
And this bird you can not change
Lord knows, I can't change
Lord help me, I can't change
Lord, I can't change
Won't you fly high, free bird, yeah

I am so sorry for your loss. Yes this is really devastating. It is midnight here in India and I can't sleep. I feel so empty inside. I can totally understand you.
