I just wanted to say you should always tell your friends and family how much you care about them.Because in just a blink of an eye life can forever change. All of you here have really been so good to me and so supportive and i feel i haven't given back as i should.You guys are an awesome family here and i never want to take for granted all the support that has been given so thank you all for your love and support. I come here once again with a heavy heart. This year has really started out with it's trials and tribulations. Last night my husband recieved a phone call from one of our friends,he told us that another dear friend of ours ,whom had been suffering from a disease that was causing his brain to deterate. He had been suffering with this for several years now and it effected his speech and motor skills to the point he was house bound and very dependant on his wife. I guess it was more than he could bear he took his own life yesterday. Please keep his dear wife Nancy in your prayers.

Karen I am so sorry to hear about your all's friend, how terrible. I am sure his wife is just numb at this point, bless her heart. Of ourse many of us here will add her and her family to our prayers.

I will have to differ with you about your role here at HW. You have a very busy schedule that many of us could not handle and yet you do make time to come here to the forum and you do share with us. It is not always just you needing an extra prayer or an ear to hear you out. So cut yourself some slack on this.

Please take care of yourself, I do worry about you, I know what a difficult time you have trying to hang onto your job so you can continue to work.

   auntkay, it is times like this that we reflect on relationships of our friends. Privey's death was a shocker to me and I still think about her everyday. You are correct in that we should grab every chance we can to create positive memorys with those who are with us today.
      I think at times for us CP'rs it can be especially hard when a loved one passes away, because we are at times limited in the quality of time or quality of life that we can seem to offer those around us.
         Time will heal the broken heart, and being open about it with others helps as well.
     I often wonder how you are doing, and know that your life if full of health issues and worry. Please do take all the time you need to grieve your loved one. I once was asked what death ment to me, and my answer was "Life"
         Your very first statment is a good example of what I'm talking about, as it may indeed change they way you or others who knew this person may think. It can be a life changing experience, and in a positive direction as well.
     I have had many relatives pass, and of course it hurt, but when a close friend passes that you have bonded to, it can be especially difficult to deal with emotionally. Take the time to share those memorys you have of your loved one. Be wise and and live what you have learned from them.
