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!
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, 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.
"Her is an interesting resource. (just click or tap on the link)
It discusses the Bibles view of Death. Why we die, but especially the hope that the Bible gives us about the future.
I hope it helps with some hope and comfort.

Annette's been dead just under eight months. My grieving hasn't stopped. I try but I keep getting worse mentally and physically. My groin has swollen more and now due to the fluid build its reaching past my knees. Grotesque doesn't come close to the sight of my misshapen body. I am a freak who is stared at whenever I manage to find the slight strength to go out. So it got me to thinking. As homely as I am, as disgusting as I have become, I remember those three words my wife and I lived with…See More

Enjoy.Death is a fearsome enemy. We fight it with all our might. We may try to deny it when it strikes someone dear to us. Or, in the exuberance of youth, we may imagine that the enemy will never come to claim us—a delusion we cling to as long as we can.Few thought more about immortality than the ancient…See More

I understand. Aside from Summer and Benny, I still get sad about the loss of our dog Sandy, who we had when I was a kid and through my college years. She died when I was in college, and I still love and miss her. I don't…"
