Hi there Not Done Yet, so very good to hear from you. I will post an example for you below. I am trying to get it all in by the end of March. EMail is good.
In Memory of Salvatore D. Sardina In our hearts forever.
Teddy and I met at a Night Club for older Singles (he was 61 and I was 54). He asked me to dance and soon a man I was dating walked in so one dance is all Teddy and I had. His Sister came up to me and said, “My brother thinks you’re so cute, would you dance with my brother again?” I explained that I had started dating someone and thanked her. I dated the other man for 7 months and Teddy dated another woman for about the same length of time. We both broke our relationships and 4 months later re met in August, got engaged Christmas Eve and married in July! He was a short Sicilian and I was a short Jewish gal and it was 16 years of a glorious and amazing honeymoon! My daughter called us the wedding cake toppers! I always describe Teddy as a man’s man and a woman’s gentleman. Sadly, in our 11th year of marriage he was diagnosed with Cholangiocarcinoma (Bile Duct Cancer) a very rare monster of a Cancer. Teddy fought the best fight he could for 5 years having survived an aborted Whipple surgery, a double e coli infection, then the real deal Whipple plus the return of the Cancer twice. After radiation and Cyber Knife there was nothing more that could be done and he passed on December 6, 2010. When I feel down I say to myself, “shame on you, you had for 16 years what most people never have in a lifetime”. That is the little trick but the biggest trick is that I am a Believer in the Beyond and I keep a log of all Teddy’s ‘winks’ and in 3 years I am up to 97 visits. When I read the log I feel so much comfort as it reminds me that Teddy, as he promised, is watching over me. The following winks are some of what I have been gifted and I hope in reading them, you will come to love Teddy as much as I do and will see that believing brings a mountain of comfort.
Teddy’s first attempt at visiting, I was straightening my closet about 11PM and the light bulb went out that
I had replaced about a month before. I went to the kitchen for some water and there are 4 ceiling lights, the one I replaced 2 weeks
prior had gone out. Then one behind it blinked 4 times. Teddy would always wink at me to let me know all is OK.
I went to the closet and the closet light was back on. Leave it to Teddy but with a little practice tonight he nailed his lights!
After Teddy’s beautiful Memorial Service the family came back to the house. There were 28 of us and before we went to dinner I
suggested that we go through Teddy’s closet and take what ever they would like. Dani, one of Teddy’s Granddaughters said,
“Grandma, let’s all wear something of Grandpa’s to dinner.” We all loved her idea. There were 6 of us in the closet when the light went out again. When it came back on everyone picked out an item from ties to T shirts and the party began. See, Teddy loved a good party and I will bet anything that he was watching us and laughing his you know what off!
My Mother passed away one month after Teddy. The day after her funeral I had the family over for lunch and while waiting for their
arrival I was sitting in Teddy’s recliner watching TV. I glanced over at the sofa and saw a strange object. It started to move slowly
on one of the back pillows. I said, “Teddy?” and it started bouncing all over the pillow even darting in and out of the creases where the
pillows connect. I said, “Teddy is that you?” The object then jumped from the couch to the floor and back. It was bronzy gold in color, about 6” high and 5” wide. Looked like an ink blot of a Pagoda. It bounced like the ball
held to a paddle by a rubber band. It was bouncing so much I likened it to frustration. I told him I loved him and missed him and it
jumped all over. Finally I very gently sat on the couch and put my hand about 6 inches under the object and it stopped, did a
Reverse and then slowly came down and rested on my hand. About 2
minutes later I pulled away, the object left. Seemed hours.
Teddy ~In our hearts forever~ATTITUDE is EVERYTHING
