How are u princess57. I read your post that today was your day of sorrow. I pray it was too difficult. I know you miss your loved one and I wish none of us had to travel this journey. God Bless and I pray better days are ahead
Thank you so much for the comment last night - I really appreciate it! I just recently joined this website so I'm still finding my way around the comments, messages, groups & friends! I really appreciate your kind words of support.
Hello princess57: it must be hard since mark was quiet. Jeaneen did not talk much either. We never talked about the if she left, what I should do . My father in law is wonderful. All of my wife's siblings have questioned if I am dating again - I do not know if that is strange or is it their business - what do you think?
Please send me 2 or 3
Photos of your husband ; jeaneen and (now I) prepare greeting cards to provide a ray of sunshine for others. You can email the photos to [email protected]
