It was 4 years on August 1st,2008 that I lost my brother.Frank told me a long time ago to leave Brad and take that job in Vegas and I wished that I did listen to him.But recently Brad got very ill and I almost lost him.For If I went to Vegas,I would have found him not so good.Do not tell me that opposites attract.This simply is not true.Some people do not like a great deal of things and he is one of them.He does not like any of the food that I do and vice versa.And Frank saw this.His last words were this"Sissy..please do not suffer anymore.He is more trouble then he is worth and he is not worth it".Those were his last words and then in two weeks he was dead and I still dont know what to do with myself on Tuesday because Frank would call me and discuss The Yankees.When I am alone all by myself..I try to do two things.The first thing that I do is write down a few ideas on what I am going to say in a discussion and then I think about it all day.I write down various sentences and then I write it out on a yellow pad.But the next thing that I do..I cry and cry over Frank and I still think of him everyday.She told me to get over it and that was the last time that I will ever speak to her.When people say this..it shows just one thing..they are only for themselves and they love and worship money.And if you do not have this money..well it is tought for you.But Frank was just so right and I do feel a little down..But today is the 1st day of The Convention.And I will watch it with pride and smile.So if you want to cry..go head!Dont let anyone say that you cant! And what do these people who say this know! I would say to them..this..I would tell them to mind their own busiess because they are not in my situation and if they were..maybe they would see things a little different..but otherwise like the late Morton Downy Jr. Would say to his ornery guests.ZIP IT!

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
A friend sent this to me..As far as I can see, grief will never truly end.It may become softer overtime, more gentleand some days will feel sharp.But grief will last as long as Love does - ForeverIt's simply the way the absence of your loved onemanifests in your heart. A deep longing accompaniedby the deepest Love some days. The heavy fog mayreturn and the next day, it may recede.Once again, it's...
