Mamiller, Thanks for joining us, I'm so sorry for your loss. I see you've already found some groups and chipped in some experiences... I do hope you find a few folks (or lots!) whose experiences and feelings echo your own, and that you can have a bit of a "home" here with us.

The forums are the heart of this community -- feel free to start topics, add videos and music in nearly any post, and share as you wish, and do let me know if you have any difficulty using the service or getting around. There's definitely a learning curve but I am finding it's worth it to have our own special space here!

Hugs to you!
