Hi Maureen!

I think I found the YWBB board somewhere around 2010, but I never joined for various reasons.  I cannot even put into words how valuable it was for my sanity at that time.  Everyone on that board became my compass and helped me in a very real way to navigate this storm.  Maureen, please know that you were a part of that!  You, personally, have made a difference in my life.  It is very much a privilege to be able to say Thank You!  I have no doubt that there are others as well.  The ripple effect of your wisdom cannot be measured at this point!

I cheered you on when you married Polarbear & I was truly heartbroken when he passed away.  Through your compounded pain you have been honest, raw and never afraid to be vulnerable.  It has not gone unnoticed that you are often the first to respond to others when they post.  Always ready with a kind word of compassion.  Countless people have passed the way of these boards & certainly you have left an impression on every one!  Since I cannot take away your pain, I would at least like you to know how appreciated you are!  Hugs to you my friend!

Hugs, Maureen.  The passage of time is still so non-linear and strange.

Take care,

There was something fishy about the butler.  I think he was a Pisces, probably working for scale.

"Non-linear and strange."

That is perfect phrasing for sure, Rob.

I remember this day.... I remember a call for an emergency bago... I hadn't met you yet in real life, but I remember the need to go, but the reality it was not possible. Hugs to you my friend, and hope you found moments of peace.
You hate me don't you? Yup, so much I married you twice! :)

I remember this day.... I remember a call for an emergency bago...

I do as well and will never forget the details of that day.  Being here for one another has been one of the most affirming parts of my life the last five years.
Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us everyday.
Unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear.
