    I agree Jeudi. This platform is much more advanced than the previous setup. I am impressed more as I see more of its options.

    Welcome to the New Widda Website Blog

    Hi Jeudi, I have created a discussion on how to create a blog!
  7. Part of the new website design enables everyone to have their own personal blog. There is just a few steps to create your blog. If you hover your mouse over the pencil icon in the top right of this website, you will see a popup that says "Create new content." If you click on the pencil icon you will see the options: Topic and Event. Now go to the Blog page by clicking Browse, then Blogs. Here you will see the option to "Create a blog." Click the "Create a blog" button to enter your blog information. Entering a blog name is required and you have the option to add a description. After you enter the info, click Continue. Next, go back and click the pencil icon at the top right of the website. Now you will see the additional option to create a "Blog Entry." Select "Blog Entry" to begin your first blog. You will need to add a title and content. Once you have entered a title and content, click "Submit Entry." Now go back to the Blogs page by clicking "Browse" then "Blogs." Now you will see your blog listed!

    I’ll get you fixed up Maureen. I just have to remember where those settings are
  12. Everything went as planned and the new design is up and running. I hope the advances in this new design will enhance the forum for each of you. Take a look around and let me know if you have questions. Also, check out the site on your mobile devices!
  13. It has been eight and a half years and I still vividly remember my last night with Kathy. It was a Monday night and we had stayed up until 10pm practicing a trumpet/piano duet for church, where we were scheduled to perform the next Sunday. Our music was echoing throughout the house and keeping the kids awake as they lay in bed. We were on our Christmas vacation so there was no need for an early bedtime. We practiced for a bit and then headed to bed happy that we were able to get a good practice completed. That night I remember Kathy rolling over in bed at exactly 2am and pressing her back up against mine with a feeling of love that I will never forget, as that was the last moment that I had with Kathy alive. At 6:30am I was in a state of sleep where my eyes were closed but I was aware of my surroundings. Kathy had made an exhaling noise that sounded exceptionally weird. I abruptly opened my eyes and tapped her arm just hard enough to see if she would respond, but not hard enough to wake her up. I just wanted to verify that nothing weird really happened. No response. I tapped a little harder but she still did not react. Then I pushed her to wake her up and it felt like I was pushing dead weight. Panic struck and I jumped out of bed so that I could see exactly what was happening! Immediately I noticed that her eyes had a glassy look to them and she definitely was not breathing. I grabbed the phone to call 911, then picked her up and placed her on the floor to begin CPR. It only took the ambulance 10 minutes to get to my house and the first responders continued CPR for over 30 minutes until Kathy’s heart began a soft beat on its own. At that point she was transferred to the hospital where she never gained consciousness and did not survive through the next day. I stumbled through life over the next few weeks feeling like I was a glass window, shattered by hurricane winds, and was being blown in every direction. Being left with five young kids forced me to keep the daily schedule mostly intact, but internally my heart was paralyzed from grief. I was referred to the previous young widow forum and I found a sense of comfort from my new club members. Night times became more tolerable as I read through posts and realized that I was grieving normally. Through this forum I have met many widow/ers, several of which became my lifeline while I was grieving the hardest. It is my hope and prayer that you find this forum as comforting and helpful as I did. Sincerely, Lewis
  14. REMINDER! The new website will be live tomorrow! The current site will be taken down late tonight around 11pm CST and I will enable the new site as fast as possible. I expect the new site to be live by 1am.
