Hi!

Denise (Denial) and I would like to get a group together for conversation to fill some time on lonely weekends.  Would you care to join us?  

We will probably get together next month (July) someplace neutral and public.  We've been waiting to hear back from others if they would like to get together.  

Let me know, ok?

Welcome stimpy13: 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"
