Trevy,

What a beautiful story

Comment by bluebird on June 4, 2018 at 9:52pm

Trevy,

That was very touching, and also extremely well written.

Comment by Nancy on June 4, 2018 at 3:58pm

Wow Trevy.  A wonderful story written.  It made me cry.

Babie J is adorable. I had three dogs when my husband died. They saved me in many ways. One dog in particular, Lucy, seemed to have a real sense for what I was feeling then. Just this morning, my essay was published about her coming into my life just as my husband left it. If anyone would care to read my take on animals and grief, it's here:

"I really don't live in this world anymore, I just exist."

This is SO true, Linda. 

I hope your pup is ok.

Hi L.O.

I know it is really hard to live without your Husband, we didn't have kids so that makes it worst, I have nothing left except my sweet little dog Babie J who is 13 years old and not doing well. So now I have to watch her suffer like I did my Husband. I really don't live in this world anymore, I just exist. 

Regards, Linda

I don't think i can cope anymore, i thought i was doing ok but im in bits. Im in pain all over but the drs cant find anything wrong, i miss him so much that the thought of never seeing him or even hearing his voice again is killing me. Iv been out to see old friends thinking this would help keep my mind busy but i still sleep alone, im still alone when the kids go to bed, the last one awake, the only one there for the kids. I don't how some of you have gone years when iv only gone a few months

That’s lovely, Linda.
