I lost "my david" 2 years ago in may. I thought I was doing much better, but then it hits me all over again like a freight train. Worst times are weekends...nothing to look forward too. Greatest friends in the world seem to be the hardest to be around. 3 couples and our kids vacationed together for 7  summers. I love them but cant handle the obviousness of who is missing at our get togethers. Back out most of the time.

Thank you for desiring to be a friend, and I am honored. I do have some trouble with my friend message connection. However feel free to drop a message anytime. We all are in a journey that needs one another.
