  1. Welcome to our friendly and supportive community. There is no timeline on Grief. I believe the biggest misconception is that somehow we "get over it" and "move on". This is not reality. Each person has a different timeline with the journey of Grief. To me grief, is the love you want to express to your Mom, yet it is difficult to manifest. My mother, brother, father, and beloved wife have all passed and each one of them I grieve differently. My beloved wife, Rose Anne, is the most challenging and brought me to this wonderful community over six years ago. The intense grief for the loss of
  2. UPDATE: I sat for the General Ham license on Saturday and passed it. I'm learning how to communicate with other operators. It is a chance to meet and talk with other people. This last year has been really isolating with lockdowns and restrictions. I am pursuing the Amateur Extra License and plan to take the exam on May 13th. - Shalom
  3. My call sign is KO4OGV. "Keep on for One God Victorious". I'm learning how to use the radio and plan to sit for the general exam next Saturday. - Shalom (Peace)
  4. Watched this post this morning and had to share it. We never know how we will touch and affect other people even through grief and mourning. This encourage me and I hope it does the same for you. https://www.facebook.com/faizel.sampson - Shalom (Peace)
  5. Update: I passed my Amateur Ham Radio Technician license on March 4th. I'm still waiting for my call sign, so I can operate a ham radio. I'm now studying for the next level: General License. My other good news is my roof repairs and complete shingling of my home was finally completed last week. The job was delayed three weeks due to constant rains. I keep pressing on. - Shalom (Peace)
  6. Happy Heavenly Birthday my beloved Rose Anne. It's been six years since you departed Earth. I'm looking forward to the time we can see each other again. - I love you more each day and as we told each other many times, "I'll see you in Heaven" - SHALOM(PEACE)
  7. UPDATE - I've been busy working and dealing with life on life's terms. I'm thankful that I saved enough of an emergency fund to repair and re-shingle my roof. Repairmen are planning to start work next week however rain is predicted (thankfully not snow) for the next few days. I still need to get my hernia repaired, and I will not be able to perform physical work for 2-6 weeks. I'm looking for a work partner and there are several challenges with this (state mandatory payroll increases, additional insurance requirements, training, etc...). I have had several dreams about Rose Anne this mo
  8. Happy Birthday, Marty! Thank you for your tireless service to our community - Shalom (Peace)
  9. Merry Christmas! 2020 has been an interesting year? This is the sixth Christmas with much mixed emotions. I continue each day to keep pressing forward to the mark set before me. I am fortunate to be able to work especially this year. I'm thankful this group was here for me in my darkest hours after the sudden death of my beloved wife. I'm still learning to accept things as they are as how they should be... learning to manage my expectations. Take care my friends. - Shalom(Peace)
  10. Happy Anniversary to my beloved bride, Rose Anne. 31 yrs ago today. We both said I do and we did. It is the sweetest memory of our union. We are separated by flesh but not by the Spirit. " I'll see you in Heaven!" - Shalom
  11. Joan_s, My heart weeps with you as you share your dreadful experience. The initial shock and awe of this does feel like a nightmare. All of your thoughts and feelings are normal. Your mind is trying to sort out and make sense out of all of this. The "what-ifs..." and "if only I..." is only natural. The best advice friends here gave me was to try and get some sleep, drink, water, and take this one moment at a time. Look into searching for a grief counselor who can help you through this challenging time. Meanwhile, this group and Marty T has plenty of resources that helped me and many p
  12. It took me quite awhile to deal with the Shock and Awe of my beloved wife's death from complications of Type 2 Diabetes. I learned to just take one day at a time. It was a couple of years after her death that my childhood dream of flying was rekindling. It was the first time I was looking FORWARD to something instead of just mourning her death. It was a weird juxtaposition. As part of this renewed passion, I determined to lose weight. In this process, I stalled after losing 45lbs. I was so determined, that I discovered the reason and that I too was pre-diabetic. When I learned the ROOT CAUSE
  13. Nashreed, My heart beats with you as i read your comments. It takes time and grief work to journey through our grief. Life will never return to what it was yet there is still a reason and purpose for our existence. My wife died over five years ago, yet at times it still feels so recent. The life and memories we shared will forever be in my hearth and mind. I have learned that feelings are not always facts yet when examined they will lead me to Truth. It feels like my life power was dimmed when she died, yet I trudge forward through life. Marty T offers many tools in our community and
  14. The hurricane will be downgraded by the time it reaches my area in Eastern coastal Virginia. Just some winds and rains predicted for Saturday. The previous hurricane came right over us three weeks ago. I had some minor repairs. This Hurricane is much stronger with category 4 winds. Praying everyone is safe and secure. - Shalom
