I'm thinking about Marley today -- and wondering how in the world she'll get through tomorrow (first holiday without Mikey and so soon after he's gone).  She's living through what to me would be the unimaginable.  I hope she'll spend the day with her mom; there's a lot of love there.

Thinking of you, Marley...

From my own experience...any way Marley chooses to spend her day is the right way no matter what anyone says.....anyway is the right way for her...and please know we are all here to talk to you any time you want, I'm sure we will all be checking this site or talking to it tomorrow.  There were times I didn't want to be with anyone and until a person goes through this there is no way to know what you want to do.  It's all minute by minute and day by day.  Just know we love you.
