Thank you for your good wishes. I feel better and coped with work today. DW worked from home. She told me she phoned her team leader at one point but before she could speak, had a coughing fit. The team leader said "Hello Debbie" without her talking at all.

This is bad time of year for us, the first without our beloved Sinjin January 14th it will be one year. On top of all this grief our 13 year old who witnessed his little brothers death is having a very hard time, I now have to home school him he is getting counseling but the poor kid is suffering and can sometimes only express it with anger. Sometimes I just want to give up, every day is a trial in itself.

I cannot begin to understand what you have gone through this year, but I can pray for you and your 13-year-old. Take some time now and then to cry and remember Sinjin, but don't give up. Your other son needs you. Be strong for him, but don't hide all your tears and feelings--he needs to know that you are feeling the same things he is feeling. Remember we are here any time you need to vent.

Thank you for sharing your website with us.

Barbara

my beautiful tree has been scalped. apparently it belongs to the mobile home park. i had it trimmed by my handyman. in no way was it a problem for anyone. the tree trimmers, butchers, is more like it, whacked it. all the beautiful branches gone. shade value gone. mine was not the only one. what they used as a guide line is really stupid. i am just sick over it and the manager here doesn't seem to care one whit. they cut it yesterday and i am still angry today.
