Thanks, Kayelle for those words. My Mom has been gone for almost 18 years and she is still there in so many things I do. Having just lost Dad last year someone told me I was now an "adult orphan". I don't think of it that way because they both live on in my heart.

I know you are still grieving for you Dad ((((LP))). He was so blessed to have such a devoted daughter as yourself. My own Daddy lived just three years longer than Mom. Three years too long as far as he was concerned. I actually wish they had been called together, as hard as it would have been on me. He had lost all will to live after she was gone so my love for them both gladly sent him to her. "Together Again" is on their headstone and I know in my heart I'll join them again as their daughter.

Yes, I have that comfort too. It actually gave me great joy at Christmas to know they were together for the first time in 17 years. This week marks one year since he went into the hospital for the last time and January to the beginning of March were very stressful months for me. I am trying to concentrate on the good times and not what happened leading up to his last days.

One good thing is he would be really going on about the NHL situation - he would be glad they are going back but mad about the fact the fans don't get any benefit out of it all - he would have opinions about trading Luongo (our Canuck goalie, the fact that there will be no games between the East and West Conferences and the firing of Toronto's GM! I smile just thinking of it!

Checking in..

I've only had time to quickly check in here when I can. It's mostly to let " Our Ma, know I'm ok...." Working in my flower gardens. No worries Ma. My PM box is full..I know clean up my box..Got it :)

Things are the same. Keeping myself extremely busy and close to the phone.

Thanks for the thoughts everyone. I appreciate them.
Bbs. Save my seat!

Munky.

Dittos, Munky. And thinking of Babetoo, wondering how she's feeling.

Are Margi and Harry never to return? I may have missed the notes on them, if earlier in this thread. And do I just not read threads where Bolas posts or is he among the missing as well?
