Linda, I didn't lose a spouse, but I wanted to say how sorry I am for the loss of your husband. You two were (let me correct that) are a very lovely couple and I know you'll be glad to see him again. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I see your posts periodically and my heart goes out to you.

Linda, so sorry about your dog! When I lost our cat it was like tearing my heart open again!Logically we know we will die, but when an innocent pet has to go thru suffering it seems even worse.
