this is a topic that has happened to me twice in seattle.But at 60 years old,you must realize and I do that friendships do not last forever.Friends have changed in the past 55 years and I am so glad that we have changes.But here is something that noone discusses.What happens if you are long time friends and things get sticky? I mean suppose you like certain things and she doesnt? What do you do? Look at 60 years old,I aint arguing over music and politics anymore.I did this in 1967.But at 60,I am allowed to like what I like..not what she likes and not to have someone try to impose her or his will on you.There are 3 people here in seattle that just have outgrown me and we are in different directions.I cannot always try to explain things to them and they just cannot always tell me that things will get better.A person is allowed to grieve..and what these people do not understand that some people is takes longer.Has anyone noticed that lately if you have certain problems,that some of your friends tend to stay away? What is it? Is it catching? Why is grief so hard for anyone to understand? I cant be always talk about your kids when I do not have any.It makes me feel uncomfortable and I do feel it.But if you like certain things and they have become a bit more important to you..then you are allowed to pursue them.Never give up what you like because he dont like it and if the friendship is getting old and you are having repeated fights and telephone hang-ups it is time to leave.When a friendship like this is getting old no matter how long you have known each other...let it go and say goodbye.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...
