Dear Marge,
Wishing you and your wonderful family a Merry Christmas and may God Bless you all. And may all of you be comforted by the caring thoughts of all of us here at DC. JoAnn

Marge, I hope you have a blessed Christmas - I won't say Merry, because I remember Christmas in the past when we'd lost a loved one - it didn't seem that we could be merry at all. I hope you do have peace and get enjoyment in the holiday and remember what Christmas is really all about. The best to you and your family.

Marge, I'm so sorry this Christmas didn't hold the miracle we all prayed for. You and Sandie and the boys must still be exhausted, too. Keep holding onto each other. Get through one day at a time of this overwhelming grief and know that one day, things will be just a little easier. Until then, we're all holding you in our hearts and prayers.
Peace and Love,
Terry

Dearest Marge,
I've been away from DC for awhile. I just want to say I'm thinking of you and holding you near my heart. May God uphold you and your family in this new year. sue

Dear Marge; I know you to be a woman of Christian faith, and so don't think this post is out of the DC boundaries as it is directed to you. Think of why we celebrate Christmas. It is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. And in our faith, He overcame the bounds of death and was resurected so that we all might overcome physical death and be resurected. You son is waiting for you to come to him, and to your other loved ones who left mortality before you. You will be with John again. It will just take some time.

Be strengthened by that knowledge, and gladdened by the clebration of the Christmas season, just past. I know it's a bit difficult as John and your husband aren't there with you. But as you smile, and laugh, with the rest of your family, and your grandchildren, I know that John will be watching, and his spirit will be gladdened to see your joy.

Help the others in your family to understand these ideas. You will find your hearts heavy burdens lightened.

Seeeeeeeya; Goodweed of the North

Back again...again with bad news. My Daughter in laws (and John's) and the two grandsons 15 year old very lovable Tuxedo Cat age 15 was sent home from the Vets to die, and then she learned today one of her two horses need to be put down.

We were all waiting for a new start this New Year.
love Marge

Oh, Marge! How sad. Losing a pet is so difficult and every bit like losing a member of the family, which they are.

Suffice it to say, Buck and I are sending our heart-felt love and prayers.

We are wishing that things straighten out soon. Never doubt that we love you and send loving hugs your way.
