You and your family are in my prayers. I can't even imagine what you're going through. I'm glad though, that you have friends and a husband who can be there for you. Please take care of yourself.

Munky Mate, you and your family have been dealt a terrible blow, stay strong.

I was married by a judge, I should have asked for a jury.

Oh Munky. My heart aches for you and for those 6 kids left behind. I'm grateful they have someone like you to make sure they're looked after and cared for. I'm so sorry for your brother's pain too, he must have been in an awful place to make such a choice. I've said a prayer for all of you and will say another later. Big hugs sweet friend.

Oh my goodness, Munky! What a horrible thing to have to bear.

It's so hard to fathom why someone does that when in your mind it's not even a consideration. It's hard enough to lose a sibling, but Oh, I don't know a thing about it, really. Sending you hugs, and strength to get through the initial shock and funeral. please give yourself permission to grieve, and take as much time as you need. There is no set time for its end.

I'm guessing you know alerady in your heart of hearts that he will always be with you, even though you won't be able to touch him -- but at a time like this it's hard to wrap your head around.

I hope you'll come here and vent whenever you need to. We're here to provide you a virtual shoulder. xoxo

Wine is the food that completes the meal.
