    Life Goes On.....

    Hi All, it has been a while since I have posted. I still miss Hugh so much but it does get "different" with time. Its been over a year now. Our new granddaughter was born on September 7th. I have just arrived home from South Carolina. She looks SO much like Hugh, even more than our son does. Everyone remarks on it. Its like Hugh's legacy. However, it hasn't been an easy road. She was born with DiGeorge's Syndrome (a missing 22nd chromosome). She has had open heart surgery which successfully repaired several holes in her heart and enlarged her aorta. She has a feeding tube until she
  2. Paige, I am so sorry, my thoughts and prayers for you and your family during this difficult time. I wish I could say something that would actually help.

    Fun in Heaven

    Wow TeeTaa, that gave me chills. I don't know about anyone else but that could be Hugh in that boat under the Rainbow Bridge. One thing he loved was fishing and especially with my brother. The two of them had such a friendly rivalry. Most of the time when I am thinking about where Hugh may be right now I think of him on that Rainbow Bridge. I love that whole concept (Thank you Norme). I sure hope Hugh is fishing on the river below it also. Thanks for a great new visual.
  4. Hey Dave, Sorry to hear your news isn't the greatest. I think about you often as you were among the first to post to me when I first joined after Hugh was diagnosed. I know you can continue to win this battle. Do you have any specific trials in mind?
  5. Great news Lily! Good for you. I am so glad to hear things seem to be going in the right direction.
  6. Thanks Rick. I have been having occassional problems logging on. It took over 15 minutes to clear my cache so it must have been pretty big. Don't know if its what is causing my problems but I am really glad to know how to clear my cache.

    TBone has died.

    Every single time this disease takes another person my heart feels like its being ripped out. I am so very sorry. I sure wish there was something I could say that would make it even a little better, but we all know that's just not possible.

    my birthday

    Glad to hear that you got through your birthday Curtis. A tame tabby? I hardly think so. You have to be part wild cat to survive any of this.

    Successful Trip

    Well, I DID it. I drove from Massachusetts to South Carolina by myself. Well, not entirely by myself, I had my dog with me. The trip went well and was easier than I had anticipated as far as driving goes. I did get tied up in a traffic jam caused by an accident going down and ended up pretty much parked on Route 95 for 3 hours while they took care of clearing the road. I drove all in one day so it put me at Jeremy's house at 12:30 a.m. when I had left my house at 5:00 a.m. I am always amazed at the range of emotions I go through since Hugh died. I was elated that I had found the cou
  10. I am so sorry for your pain Ginny. I wish there was more I could do.
  11. Mine is pretty boring also. My name is actually Candace and Candy is the standard nickname and what most everyone calls me. I do have 2 friends that use Candace. My brother and sister and a couple of family friends call me Bird. Some friend of my parents once told me I was flighty like a bird when I was a kid and that stuck and I have been Bird to family members ever since. Hugh never called me by my name. I don't think I heard him refer to me as Candy more than twice in the entire time we were together and once was our wedding vows. He literally had a new name for me everyday and somet

    In Loving Memory

    ((((Connie))))) That was truly lovely. It made me cry. You are wonderfully brave!
  13. Curtis is right, its not selfish at all to wish you could have more time with someone you love. If it was selfish we would all be extremely selfish people. I think you will find that as time goes by you will have more and more good minutes. Notice I say minutes because that seems to be what I measure my time by. I still have more really bad times than not, but I do have times now that I stop what I am doing and realize that I actually functioned for a while without thinking about how sad I am. I know that now when I think about my Dad who I lost over 30 years ago or my Mom who I lost 10
