  12. Hi Marci, I'm so glad you had a visit from your mom. Cherish it! I had a couple of dreams with my dad and I remembered every single aspect of the dream and still can. I do believe they are real and come when you need them
  13. This board wouldn't be the same without you both! Thank you for all that you do in the memory of those you love Hugs to you!
  14. Just had to share.... Connor was given the opportunity to choose a project for the 100th day of school. He chose to do 100 jumping jacks and he solicited neighbors, friends and family to sponsor him to raise money for lung cancer. He was able to collect $100 and we are going to donate it to my dad's memorial fund that is set up through Lungevity. I am so proud of him! Its amazing what a second grader can accomplish!

    It's Official!!!!!!

    Kasey, WE are so blessed that you are here and are a survivor! Congratulations Tammy
  18. So sorry for your loss. Prayers, hugs and thoughts for you and your family.
  19. Michelle, I am so sorry for your pain. Please know that what you are going through is real and understandable. I have moments of raw grief over my dad and its been 1 and half years! You have been a caregiver for a long time and now you need caretaking and it sounds like you don't have much. I'm a psychology professor and can lecture on the stages of grief but its a whole other thing when you are experiencing it yourself. I agree with Randy, unfortunately the grief will still be there whether you are drinking or not. Grief takes time but if you can't function then I do hope that you can find some support whether it be individual therapy or a support group. Sending hugs and prayers your way. Tammy
  20. Thinking of you and your family Ann.

  22. Wow Mitch! You look fantastic and great news about your mom! Enjoy your holdays!
  23. Saw this early this morning on MSNBC. It does heavily link lung cancer to smoking but I guess you have to start somewhere... www.msnbc.msn.com/id/34449054/ns/techno ... e-science/

    My dad is around

    Most of you that are longtimers on here know how my dad and the New York Giants went together like peanut butter and jelly.....well this weekend I took my son up to NY for his first New York Giant game. They are going to start in a new stadium next year and it was important to me to take him where my dad took me. We stopped at the cemetery first and the Giant flag we put next to the headstone at his funeral was still there. The Giants started off well this year but have been falling apart lately. Connor walked up the gravesite and said "Cappy the Giants could use your help today." It was so cute. Well I fluctuated between sadness and euphoria all day but Connor's enthusiasm kept me going. What a game! The Giants weren't doing too well in the first quarter and Connor took out my dad's hat that we gave him after the Giants won the Superbowl and put it on for "luck". Well, the Giants turned it around and whipped Dallas' butt and after the game Connor looked at me and said "I think Cappy heard us!"
