I wait for a time when we can soar together again
Both aware of each other.
Until then live your life to the fullest.
And when you need me,
Just whisper my name in your heart,
I will be there
Dave, I just wanted to let you know I've printed this piece out and framed it and have it on the table beside my bed.

I printed it out in about 3- x 5-inch format, in dark blue ink on blue and white marblized paper. It's in an antique-like gold frame.

I showed it to our son, Aaron, who was visiting this weekend. He loved the words. Said they "were" Buck and me.

Turns out the poem has been around since 1987. It's by Colleen Corah Hitchcock. It's so beautiful. Thanks for guiding me to it. It's a source of comfort.

Just posting a friendship request, I was looking at my friends and my heart broke. This whole thing started about the time Buck was taken to the hospital. Well, all my request, but one special one, was granted. Buck is on there still as a request. I be there are a bunch here that are the same way. I don't want that to change, so, if admin are able to change it, PLEASE DONT! It's kinda like a memorial to me.
Just a little meloncolly {sp} this morning when I saw that.
I miss Buck's jokes and easy nature.
Katie, I still think about you all the time. I hope your heart has eased on grieving and you are able to smile when you think of your love now.

That's a sweet loving thought, Stacy, and it warms my heart you feel that way.

It was two months ago today that Buck died and I'm getting along. I think what's really happening is that I'm just feeling numb. One day runs into the next and the calendar continues to turn over.

Your thoughts were timely today and I appreciate them. Thanks.

Dear Katie... you are always on my mind and in my prayers. I know this is not easy.

I learned when my Dad died that the Jewish way of mourning starts with the week of Shiva, but continues throughout the whole year. And of course, the sadness doesn't end with the year, but somehow the sun seemed to "come out" then. I'm wishing that for you.

Aww Katie, I didn't even realize the date. I will just think of that as him saying hello to me then. I know you guys don't know me from Adam, but, that just makes me feel good to think. {{{{{{{{{{BIG HUGS, Katie}}}}}}}}}}}!!!!
