      Dear Kendell, I am so sorry that you've lost Debbie. I understand what you are going through as my husband, Sean passed away Sept 24th. The past 7 years were not kind to him, so there is some peace in knowing he is free from pain and watching over us.

      But having said that, I'm here having a very melancholy evening thinking about what could have been.

      I understand, but I also know that you have so many other issues going on that make it all the more harder to cope.

      I'm thinking about you and the several others here that have lost loved ones in the very recent past. We're a kind of sad group by association.

      Take care Kendell. I hope that things get better for you very soon.

          Very sorry. it seems we have had a lot of loss here lately.
          If you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.

              I'm sorry I only saw this now. Kendell, it sounds like you were exceptionally lucky to have loved someone as incredible as Debbie. And I'm sure Debbie felt the same way. I think you are so strong for staying by her side during this rough time. It can't be easy to see your loved one struggle, but I hope you can find peace now. My thoughts are with you and your family.

                Melissa,
                I've been away from CC for quite some time dealing with my own health issues...I just saw you refer to Debbie in past tense in another post so I searched out to see when she had passed. I'm VERY SORRY I wasn't around when she passed away to pass on my condolences. Just yesterday I was looking at my pictures from when I was in Ohio & we met up for dinner. It was such a pleasure meeting both of you. If you would like, I can send you the couple of pictures I have(it's only 1 or 2) from that evening. I hope you are doing well these days.

                  How did I miss this thread? I had no idea until I saw the other thread too but was afraid to ask. I am so sorry Melissa.

                    A year later, Christmas Eve, and it seems time to get back to this thread.

                    Shelley, if you still check in here and see this, I"m so sorry about Sean's passing. I know it's been awhile, and though I do not believe time heals all wounds, I would say it does make it easier to learn to cope with a huge loss. I hope you're doing well.

                    Michelle, while packing I ran into a couple pics from that dinner. We enjoyed meeting you as well. I wish Debbie had felt better that evening. She was trying, but not up to snuff. I'm sorry you've had health issues and I hope you're doing better by now.

                    Smkymtn Memories - yeah, it was rough. I'd go through cancer surgery and chemo repeatedly the rest of my life rather than what i went through losing Debbie any time. Still hurts. Always will hurt. And despite that I will agree that "tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all". Simply amazing and precious what that woman gave to me.

                    Kiran- thank you. There's a Janis Joplin line "Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose". It's apt. My peace of mind comes in hoping that Debbie now has peace of body.

                    Leschinsky. Sofla, Daisy and Addiesue - thank you for the kind words - very much appreciated.

                    Ami- you know how I feel. Thank you, my friend.

                    Perhaps I shouldn't have revisited this thread so long after the fact, but holidays are still tough times and I'm struggling tonight with missing Debbie. Having to pack and move the last couple weeks have kept me thankfully busy but not so tonight. It is better than last year - last year I cancelled Christmas in my little word - but still a big hole in my heart that no holiday festivities can fill. So here I am.

                    Thinking about Betheny tonight as well, and my heart goes out to her on what must be an incredibly difficult evening for her, and for all those who either cannot find joy anywhere tonight, or who may be able to smile by now but with a pang in their heart as well missing someone dear. For me, Christmas is about love, not just for our families and friends,but for our fellow man. Merry Christmas, everyone.

                        Merry Christmas to you, too, Kendall. Your words about time, loss and love are exquisite and resonant. May the new year bring you comfort, and even joy.
