i'm sorry about the loved ones you've lost.  it all seems like an awful lot for 1 person to go through.  i'm trying to get through the grief of losing my dad right now and it sure is hard.  i'm so glad I found this forum.

All people are different in their journey of healing. Give others grace, acceptance, compassion and kindness on their journey.

Hi Diana Y, Im doing badly.  Its been around 15 months for me now since my wife passed, and I still cant believe she has gone.  There's a hole in my life now, and it will never be filled.  I watched some online video's recently just to have her near to me, I cried my heart out.  I also feel very sorry for our Yorkie pup, because my wife had Yorkies all her life, they were like little people to her, she was devoted to Yorkie's.  Thanks for enquiring about me.

Hi Diana, thanks so much for getting back to me.  Somehow I had managed to find the email address for Jan Warner and she gave me the place to find her blog again.  Hopefully I wrote down that address too!

Diana, 

Thank you for providing a place where people can go for comfort and support. I'm a new member of your community and I would like to offer some help.   As a retired pastor I've felt a special calling to help those who've suffered personal loss.  I've ministered to people for over 30 years and since retiring  felt I needed to do more.

The result is I've written a book with the specific purpose of offering a completely different perspective for those who are grieving.  It's titled:

Email From Heaven and has recently been published.  I did not write it for fame or profit.  It's available on Amazon for the cost of printing - and also in EBook form (Link Below).  I hope members of this social community would please take just a few minutes to look at the site - especially the Comments by readers to see how it is being received.

It is my sincere wish that my small book will bring new meaning, new comfort, and renewed hope.

Dear Diana,  I think this site is going to be a great comfort to me in the endless days and months stretching out before me without my husband.  When I first signed on here, there was a blog by Jan Warner that I would so love to be able to read again, but I cannot find it anywhere.  And I have searched every place I can think of to find it, to no avail.  Do you have any idea how I could access her blog again?  Thank you so much.  Elizabeth  (SUAlumna@nycap.rr.com)

Diana, are you the admin of this group?  I have looked and looked and this is as close as I can get.  If you are, can you please tell me why we need someone like Jeniffer Page advertising funeral services on here?

Hi Diana. I am new to this site and I want to thank you for creating it. There are so many people here who are struggling and feeling the same things I am, which makes me realize that I am normal.

Hi Diana, Thank you ever so much for getting back to me, I did see your private message but I couldn't figure out how to send a reply sorry! I'm actually in the UK and unfortunately it costs an absolute fortune for me to call overseas through my telephone service provider also I'm not at all sure what the time zone difference between us is, Do you have an e mail address or an inbox that I can use to contact you? I'm actually just off to bed now as it's past 1am here and I have to be up early but if it's ok with you I will check back with you later on today, Again thank you so much for getting back to me so quickly I really am most grateful, Jo.

Thank you very much for adding me to the site, Please could you contact me as I am very very upset, I lost my only child my son in 2010, as I am a graphic designer/digital artist I decided I would honour and keep my beautiful brave boys memory alive by creating custom memorial graphics, I make no charge for my work I merely ask that my terms of use are respected as they are all copyrighted (all rights reserved) Sadly there is a member on here who is removing my copyright from my graphics whenever possible and completely covering over it on graphics that she is unable to remove it from, that in itself is both hurtful and very disrespectful to my son's memory but to then actually add her own name to them and post them as her own on this and various other sites, Well, I'm sure you can understand why I am so hurt and angry, I have tried to contact this member via two other sites and as I am obliged by law to do so a DMCA take-down request has been sent to both which will hopefully be responded to without it having to be enforced, I am just devastated, how can anyone be so cruel to steal my child's memory, I would very much appreciate your help with removing all of my infringed work, all of the originals can been seen and links to them provided upon request, Again thank you for adding me and I look forward to hearing from you.
