Topic: Happy Birthday to my DARLING!!!!

Today is Wayne's birthday he is 60 years old today.  He will always be 59 in my heart.  Our daughter and I went to see him.  I was glad they had just mowed and weed eated the grass.  The pond is now full of water again.  It is so peaceful, we put new flowers with butterflies on them.  Last night I made little name tags to drap on the branches.  We went and picked up some ballons and put them next to the flowers.  I believe if he could he would try to fish out of the pond with the ballons.  They cleaned the pond and there is nothing in it yet, Wayne says just give him time.  In life, in recent years he has not been able to get anyone to take him fishing because they didn't want to take reponsiblity because of his disablities.  Now God lets him catch them all day and throw them back.  The fun to him was the chase.  God says now you have no disablities your leg is whole again,you can see the birds, you can hear that wonderful canary,  your heart has no damage, and there is NO CANCER.  Thank you, God for giving me 35 years with, I believe the greatest man on earth.
Happy Birthday to Wayne!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Love to my Wayne for 36 years
I'm not a widow, I am a wife
We are only apart for heaven's sake
You are waiting for me at heaven's gate

Re: Happy Birthday to my DARLING!!!!


You bring tears to my eyes when you write about your beloved Wayne.  It's so obvious that the two of you shared a great love. 

You should be very proud of yourself for the steps you are taking in your journey with grief. 

When I lost my Mom to CC I really thought all of the events leading up to her death and the anticipatory grief would somehow make losing her easier.  It doesn't.  It's been a little over a year since Mom died and while it has gotten easier I find I can be blind-sided by the most simple things.  I was in Walmart one night and someone walked by wearing her perfume and I lost it, disolving into tears. 

I guess what I really want to share with you is grief is an intensely personal and private journey.  There is no right or wrong way to grieve.  It will get easier but only in its and your own time.  We are all on this journey together.  We're here for you!

I'm sending hugs to you and your family.


My Mom lost her one year battle with CC on April 3, 2009.

"A prognosis is simply an audit of how truly precious each day is.  Live each day to the maximum, celebrate what was, and what is - Don't spend your life looking forward to what will or might be." .... words of wisdom from my beloved son on hearing of his grandmother's CC prognosis.
