WaltC Posted June 19, 2006 Report Share Posted June 19, 2006 ((((KAYC)))) - my thoughts are with you and George on this special day. I want you to know that your posts here have helped me a great deal. I did not think that I would survive the first year. I did not even want to, but I promised Jeannie that I would try.Finding this site and people like yourself, who really understand what it means to lose a loved one has made me realize that we are NOT alone and we can help others to survive also. Here are some examples of how you have helped me:On July 20th your wrote:I try to think of something good about each day, about seeing the deer in my yard looking at me or the elk mewing in the trees. These things do not take his place, not even for a moment, but they are joys in themselves all the same. We have to go on, we have no choice, but we can still look forward to being reunited someday.On July 23rd…It helps to hear what others have to say...to know that I'm not crazy, or if I am, at least I'm not alone, for we who have lost our life partner, our love, we are going through this lonely path together.On Aug 4th…I am very happy for my husband, he is safe, he is happy, he is in that wonderful place we now all long for...but for myself, I am going to have to make something of this rubble that is left of my life. I am going to have to give it meaning, hope, purpose.You most certainly deserve these HUGS At year end 2005 you offered these words of hope:We must hold on to our hope for sometimes, at the moment, that is all that we have. It is that hope and faith that sees us through the darkest of times until we can see our dreams realized in fruition. We have the hope of seeing our loved ones again and being reunited, we need to focus on that and on what we have now rather than concentrating on how long the wait is.In late February, having watched this VIDEO you wrote:…at the precise moment that George died, 6:00 p.m. Father's Day, there was a thunderous storm with lightening and rainbows,..you could see the blue sky and clouds lit up because the lightening lit it up. The picture was incredible! There were multiple rainbows, and I can't help but think that this whole shower of display was George being welcomed into heaven. .. We need to remember and think about it, that they are with us, just in changed form.Absolutely right! – Our loved ones will always be with us if we let them in. They are patiently waiting for us Listen Here On Mar 15th you again gave some good advice:…so we focus on remembering how fortunate we were to have that person in our life, how fortunate we were to have ever had them at all...so in essence, we are fortunate that we are missing them now because if had never had them in our lives at all, that would be even worse than this pain that we carry. This pain is a reminder of all that was created between us, the love, the memories, the special bonds we had.I am sure your dear George is watching over you today as always and has taken your advice to : GO REST HIGH ON THAT MOUNTAIN Take Care Kay - you are an important asset to this group.
