one month

Janet has been gone a month today. I have managed to get every thing done that had to be done in case I wake up dead some morning soon. I didn't want to leave a inheritance nightmare for the boys if I died . There are still a few things to do but I have been assured that what is left to do would not be a problem for them.


I remember when my sister Debbie died and dad was grieving and


I told him it was for the best. He told me I know but it is so hard. I thought at the time I understood how he felt but now I know I didn't have a clue.


I don't wish to put a damper on your day . I just had to say something.

I knew when this happened that you had no idea how hard the coming days would be. I know you wake in the night and remember....I know you forget when the phone rings and I think she is calling...I know you know that God's will...WILL be done, but it is hard for those left behind. Some don't understand that we do not wish to change things, but I do understand. We only wish to bear our burden with dignity. Glad you are getting all the many things done that you have to do.

Patsy, will you post something about where Dillard is buried. I want to add it to my family file. I do not have the location.

Patsy, it's no surprise that you're measuring time in relationship to Janet's passing. That was your personal 9/11, and it makes sense that you'd commemorate the day here. You'll be the one who'll see every milestone, and though you might stumble over some of them, those who love you won't let you fall.

I can honestly say I knew you were having a difficult time. I picture you putting one foot in front of the other and getting by day to day, because that's what we do when we don't know what else to do. We take one day at a time.
