I am saddened to hear of all this loss, I wish you time to mourn for your loss, but it only shows what a spirit you are, being strong for all those around! I am an ear whenever you need! My heart goes out also to those around you! Hugs

Thank you Arthur....I don't mean to sound so down or cause anyone one to feel down, but this is a reality that I feel compelled to write about. Have a blessed day...

If for only him, I pray you soon wear grey then maybe blue, then maybe yellow, then maybe red, never forget, but remember all the good, he wants that, and many could use your support, only those who suffered can understand! Hugs

My neighbor just lost her son on Christmas eve right in front of our complex, he was crossing the street to come home and was struck and killed by a truck and car at the same time and was lying in street split in two. The pain to see him lie there dead was unbearable. Another neighbor is raising her 4 yr old niece who's mother was killed by her boyfriend right in front of this little girl - and that's just to name a few.

Thank you Arthur...as always, you are so kind with your expressions of encouragement to me...It's hard, not only for me but for my family...I am the one that has to be strong and supportive to and for them and at times I just want to be alone and just grieve - totally grieve. Bc of my sons death, I almost lost my daughter and at present she is hospitalized...But this write was not only regarding my situation, but also a few that live in my area.

I can relate to this one in my life - Christmas and new Year are painful times for many with thoughts of loved ones no longer with us :-( Hugs Jan xx

VERY VERY PAINFUL.....so much so, that I was not in the mood to be hearing a celebration of the New Year going on around me. Thank you Jan for stopping by and commenting - I hope that God give you the power beyond what is normal to cope with your loss. Take care..
