What can I say Marge. I am certain Nov 21 was not a good day. November 22, I trust you had something to be grateful for, that being Paul and John and your entire family, and regardless of the fact that Paul has passed, I hope you celebrate your anniversary. P.S. I loved your story above regarding John's bathrobe. Very touching. Take care dear. All my best to you and yours.

All of our hearts break for you! I know there is little any of us can say that will ease any of your pain. But do know our hearts, love and thoughts are with you.

Tomorrow at 1 PM is the time my son will be placed in his final resting place..my heart is broken ..again.
Love you all,

someday soon I will send it to Kitchenelf and have her post it..
Marge
Marge, it's clear Sandie loves John and respects his family. You are blessed to have such a loving daughter-in-law. I hope you spent a calm and blessed Thanksgiving. Even though it seems like the world has "dumped" on you, you have so much to be thankful for. What a great family you have!! Love and lots of hugs to you from Buck and me.

Marge, that story was great. I echo the thoughts of the others. You have a wonderful family. And it sounds like all of you will maintain that close relationship. You are still Grandma, and will stay in the hearts of you grandchildren and DIL. I know you will be the best Grandma ever, and MIL as well.

Time continues to march onward, unstoppable. It carries us where it will. I hope that you had a wonderful thanksgiving.

I don't know how I missed this - I've not been around as much lately. I'm so sorry for the loss of your son, Dove. May he rest in eternal peace.

Marge you have a wonderful Daughter - she obviously loves John very very much, and you! She is a treasure. My prayers remain with you for strength and comfort. If there is anything we can do please PM me - we're not that far away!

Marge - you have been on my mind every day. I know you hate to talk on the phone though. I will call you when things settle down and you aren't so "raw". Just know that the Bear and I love you very much.

Dear Marge, words are inadequate. I am so sorry for your loss. All I can say is Amen to what Jabbur said and we will pray for the peace of God to comfort you.

Dear Lord, we ask you to stay close to this family as they grieve the loss of their beloved son, husband and father. Only You can give them comfort through Your mercy and love. We know that even in the darkest night You are the light of the world. We thank you for the gift that John was to this world. While John will be missed, his spirit lives on in the lives of all those he touched in his time here on earth. Surround this family with love from you and from us as they face the difficult days ahead. Amen

Amen

Karen

Many hugs, SC

O dear, words can't describe how one feels in that situation. All that I can offer are my condolences, albeit late. I sincerely hope that you are able to receive some comfort in this time of sorrow. Just remember that God is with you, as are our prayers.
