"Hi. I'm reading The latest comments with interest and sympathy. I send my best wishes out to all who are suffering. It's almost the third anniversary of the loss of my husband and father of two. My son is in college and my daughter is set…"
"Sorry to hear that your trip was difficult, Mary. I can relate, though. I took my two teenagers on a dream trip to Portland, OR and it was difficult. I ended up going places alone because my son wouldn't get out of bed until noon and my…"
"It's good to read your thoughts on this subject. I can relate to feeling caught in the middle. This March will be three years since my husband died of brain cancer. I was 49 at the time. I've only dated one person, and boy, was he a…"

"Hi Booktime, It seems that if we can get out of the loop thinking, that we can notice life going on and then find something we like in that life. I was stuck for years, very depressed while my husband was sick, and then stuck in grief when he died.…"
"Hi, I like hearing about where you all live. Lakegirl, it's so cool that you have loons to hear and see. (Funny how autocorrect changes that to "lions.") I hope your wedding anniversary wasn't too difficult. Mine is coming up on…"
"Hi to all, I'm reading how difficult it is to give energy to a career when grieving and recovering. I left my job to take care of my ailing mother not long after my husband died. It was a difficult decision, but it has given me space to work…"
