i have to start this discussion and I do not know what to do.I have reached what I wished on a star when I was 8.I always wanted summer off.I love the summer and walking in the sun.It has been a bit rough on both of us.Brad is in rehab again and when this happened to me..for some reason she no longer speaks to me.I knew that she was depressed after the death of her grandchild.It was her only grandchild and it was a car accident.The concert got out late and there was a storm.The rain was pouring down the highway.It was horrible.They approached the light.Thats when it happened.2 guys across the way were arguing.It was road rage and one of them crossed the divided.All I can say is this my friend Jeff tried to avoid him.He couldnt not.All of them were killed.He was 19.Why? Why do people argue over a car? Is is necessary to fight over a silly matter? Sophie was out and noone could reach her.When she came home,the sheriff was there and we both knew.I should have stayed longer.But I couldnt.Brad was in a bad way and the sponsor told me not to leave him alone for a certain period of time.I did not go to the funeral.I sent flowers to the memorial.I didnt know Jeff well.1 week after the funeral..sophie called me.She wanted to go to Starbucks and have coffee.This is something that she has never done.We met at starbucks and she was carrying a tote.As she placed it on the chair..all this food came out.There was no receipt.I knew that Sophie and her friend were ripping off this guy.This man does not like Sophie and her friends.and told me that the next time this happens..he will call the police.Why is she doing this? First of all,I am not a professional.I do not give out advice like Ann Landers.The course that I took trained me to listen and they gave me a list of various phone numbers in seattle that people can call.I went into Safeway and Sophie was right behind me.She put a box of candies in her purse.The clerk saw her and she was stopped by security.I saw the whole thing.I was in awe.I want to say this that in Florida..the law enforcement in one place are having problems.Shoplifting there is on the increase and it is the seniors that are doing it.Because of Brad and the lease and the cats..I havent seen her in weeks.I know that this is hard..but in seattle..if you are with someone who shoplifts..the police put you in the jail also and I dont want to experience this.Sophie told me before she was arrested that she took 20.00 out of my purse.This was the 2nd time that she did this and frankly..I dont think that this friendship of 7 years is going to last.Not even Brad goes into my purse.No one does.But do remember if this behavioiur starts after a funeral..try your best to get help and get is soon.Thanks,Vader!

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...
