    In ER with Fiancé.

    Those past tragic experiences can certainly trigger anxiety and flashbacks to times we would like to forget, but after all these years, I still remember them all too clearly. Thank goodness nothing serious was found, but hope you both just stay vigilant. Sending prayers for continued health and strength. So glad for both of you.

    There are worse things than death

    This just breaks my heart for these precious girls' mom and family. I am in tears and in shock that something so horrific can happen to the two sweet angels. Sending heartfelt prayers.

    Just a quick hello

    Hope you are doing well, Icoxwell, despite all the sad anniversaries of so many past dates and memories. After all these years, I can definitely relate. I'm so sorry for your cousin's loss, and hope she finds comfort from you and also this site. Sending heartfelt prayers to both of you.

    Sad Loss Of WifeLess

    Oh dear Bluebird, my heart aches for you! Back during the YWBB days, I was thrilled you and Wifeless found each other, shared your love story and later your beautiful wedding pictures with us. During the years, you both offered generous and empathetic advice to others in pain, as well as rejoicing with others during their happier times. I wish we could all collectively hold you in our arms to help comfort you. I am so very sorry, Bluebird.

    I'm so sorry you are all having to deal with yet another change and can see how devastating this must feel for Araia. As long as he is reassured that your family will always be there for him and that, although your family may be physically moving to a new location, he will always have a place with you, in your heart and home, wherever you go. After all he has been through in his young life, it may take time for him to realize that he is loved and safe with you and your family wherever that may be.

    Rambling about missing her

    After all these years, I still "get it" The longing and missing are still there but get more manageable. Just keep doing what you're doing and make your sweet wife proud, as I'm sure she is!

    Back to ground zero

    I'm so sorry to read this TooSoon. Sometimes life piles on more than we think we can handle, especially when we have to face big life changes alone. Although the news is devastating and a huge blow, I'm glad it was caught before it could jeopardize your daughter's health further. Sending heartfelt prayers for strength and peace for you and your sweet daughter.

    Heads up to new members

    Thank you, BH2, for passing on the comfort in knowing that new widows/widowers have a place to land. I don't know what I would have done without the support of my fellow YWBB widows/ers. I can also attest that, although life still holds it's challenges after more than ten years, it has become manageable. I never believed it in the early days, but please have faith that slowly and surely, joy will find you.
