Thanks to all of you for the kind words. It turned out to be a good day, I missed Mike very much, but I was with friends, and it turned into a good day.
Today is a sad day for my friend Dana, her husband died unexpectedly 4 years ago today. Our little support group, Dana, Tom and myself, are getting together today at Tom mountain house (as opposed to his house in town). We are going to the cemetary to drink a toast to Morris, then are spending the night at Toms, probably a little drinking and eating going on, as well as memories. Tom and Morris's sons were in boy scouts together, and Tom and Morris worked with the boy scouts together. They were good friends. All of us knew each others spouses, and all six of us were friends, now there are only the three of us left. It will be a special evening. Tom is coming to pick me up just after lunch, and Dana will meet us there. She just lives down the road from Tom's mountain house. Having these two in my life has made my journey a little bit easier, Dana calls Tom and I her Brother and Sister of her heart.
Again, thank you for the kind words. I wish Mike were here so very very much, but I am blessed in what I do have, a caring family, and my two friends who understand perfectly how I feel....and you guys.
