I am back_Linda2
« on: March 23, 2020, 06:40:17 PM »
I have not been participating in the group lately due to my husband's death  a week ago.  Now however, the family is all gone and I am on my own again....so I have been lurking in the background trying to pass the time by drawing , reading, cleaning house, etc. since we are on house quarantine with the exception of absolutely essential trips for necessities.  We did not even have a funeral for him due to the restrictions in place .so actually it all seems surreal.  We do plan a visitation/memorial service at a later date when the virus threat abates but for now I am trying to re-formulate my life.  I miss him terribly as we were married for 62 years last December and I have not been absolutely alone in many , many years.  Of course my immediate family is only a telephone call or short drive away but the house......the house....is silent.  I don't even have my beloved Mickey as she passed in January.   I promise I will not dwell on my issues though.  I look forward to getting my creative juices flowing again so today I sat down and did this little signature piece just to have something to do.

I'm so sorry for your loss of a dear husband, Linda! The silence I know all about. None to say goodmorning or goodnight to, was hard to get use to. But doing my hobbies with images and photos helped a lot. So try that the most you can.

Sending you warm thoughts and hugs, Linda!

Thanks everyone.  Y'all will never....never know just how much you mean to me , especially at this time.  Yes, one keeps on simply because there is no other solution except to try and rebuild some semblance of life.  I had almost a year in which to prepare because after his last hospitalization in April 2019 the doctors pretty much told us there was nothing left to do.....so we came home to wait it out.  Still it was a gut punch when he went.  Just know that even though we have never met face to face I regard you all as old friends and appreciate your considerable talent and our shared interest in this app....AD.

I'm like your sad dog, Linda, oh so sorry for your loss. That was a lot of years spent together!

We did miss you and will be looking forward to our interactions here at PIRC.

Thanks Lynn and San.  Yes , while I do mourn Ron, I realize that we shared 62 wonderful years and many , many fantastic adventures together.  I'm sure I could not have picked a better life partner with whom to share my life.  I miss him terribly...... for the past year a good bit of my time was spent tending to his needs so now I am having to start trying to make a new normal.  I have a most supportive family and even at this trying time we are lending emotional support to each other.  Thanks for your kind expressions of sympathy.  It means a lot to me.
