Good news


I can’t tell you how relieved I was today to receive an email from the folks at Caringbridge telling me that I am welcome to keep this site up indefinitely.   The lady said that many people keep their sites up after their loved ones have passed away and add to them on special anniversaries or birthdays.   I certainly don’t think I will need to be updating indefinitely, but for the next while will definitely be nice.  I tried to find another site but it just felt like I was leaving Bernadette behind the same way I had to walk away and leave her little casket at her grave site.  This is such welcome news.  I keenly felt as well that I was also leaving friends behind and it felt extremely lonely.  This is definitely not a good time to isolate oneself, the pain is too hard to endure on one’s own.

So for as long as the Spirit moves me, I will return here regularly to share our journey of grief and any other experiences regarding Bernadette we may have.

You need to take as long as it takes to grieve.
Time heals, but sometimes very slowly.
God Bless & keep you.
