This is a about the Pavers.. Those who started this site, and those who keep it going .. I am in debted to those who started and wish to thank them from the depths of my heart. For w/o you , I have no clue what state of mind I would be in.. Your unselfish actions and love for others has brought so many together to share and endure this thing called grief. No glory wanted for yourselves , nor asking anything for yourselves, Just the giving of yourselves unto others.. I applaud you, I admire and respect you, as you were the Pavers from the start........... Then there are those who lead the new ones and comfort them and show them that life does go on.. You also give of yourselves, you show that yes, you can still have fun, you can still make plans, you can still have meet-ups. You can even ride in hot air balloons, sky dive and  anything you want to do in this new life.. You can go anywhere you desire.. You have shown wisdom in your words to others, you have cried with us, you have given us virtual hugs and even some in person.  You have shown that you are there for us even from a distance. My gratitude , for all this can not be put into words as I would like , I know.. There are friendships made here that I know will endure the ages.. These are the re-surfacers I described above..  Always there , an email, a chat away or a phone call away.. Friends come and friends go in this journey , but it seems that each of us in our own way learn from each other.. Thankfulness is a gift , just as Giving is a gift, To all who have helped and continue to help, Thank you so very much .. You have done an excellent job. So for now for myself as I can only speak for myself.. May all your days be filled with a new joy in knowing that  through your own grief and tribulations have helped so many..... Some say it takes time and that is so true , just as it is time to let my thoughts and heart be known, as months ago my mind was in a different frame , but am now reaching a different stage.. and giving credit where so much credit is due....... Forever in Thankfulness unto each of you...

Ah norman you are so good with words. I so agree with your tribute. But also thank you my friend for being cyber present for all of us, especially; those of us who lost our loves to Gbm 4. Many happy trails to you.
