In the last week, three people that I know of have needed help because of hard things which were going on in their lives. But, without a phone network, the only support available to them was posting their dilemna and hoping someone would respond. I would like to see us have a phone chain where any member could call at least one other member if he or she needed to talk about anything that was especially difficult that day, and know that the other person would listen with sincere concern and love for that member, because at another time it could be him or her who needed the listening ear. So this is what I would like each of you to consider. I wish for anyone who would like to be a part of this to send their real name, telephone number, and state for time zone purposes, to me in a personal private message, so that there will be security for our members, and your number will not be given to anyone but me and the people who agree to be on the list. Once you send it to me, I will compile a list of all the names and send it back to each member on the list in a private personal message. Something else I would love to see, is a real picture of each of you beside your user name instead of a pretty picture of something else. Since this site is about families of prisoners what would be really nice, and I know it isn't possible for everyone depending upon your situation, but many on here have a picture of them and their whole family if they have one, or them and their loved one, or just them as I do because james and I haven't had a chance yet to get them taken together. A picture just like a first name, does not rob anyone of his or her privacy. and it is so much more personal. I think everyone of you is so beautiful! And we share things on here so real and honest. Why should we be afraid of showing our outward shell to each other, when we are bearing our very souls to one another in the posts and messages we are sending to each other? Just a thought. I love you all! Lorie Ann

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????
