Del, Walt might have left his body, but I truly believe he is with you in spirit. I know when my mom, and other loved ones passes away they have always made their presence known. They appear in my dreams and thru various various ways. My mother in law had a sense of humor. One day I wast eating lunch at a health food store that I had frequented for years. This one time was especially odd since the food was extremely salty. So was my daughters food. This happened right after she passed away. Then I rembered all the times I used grab the salt shaker from her hands and hide it because she poured too much of it on her plate and she had heart condition. I hope this doesn't sound to woo woo. You are wise to surround yourself with family and friends. I wish you have all the comfort you need to help you thru your new journey.
Welcome back! I am so glad you will continue to grace us with your wealth of knowledge and kindness.
I don't think grief ever goes away, we just learn to cope with it as best we can. I have my "stuff" in my apartment but not moved in yet because the TV and Internet won't be hooked up until the 24th of March. My plan is too get involved in things and to be busy. I will be joining a couple of sewing and craft groups and getting into some exercise programs. I enjoy meeting new people. My passport application is almost ready to go and I am planning to go to the IHD yearly get together!! I also plan to visit Willowtreewren in the next year or so!!! I will miss Walt and all we did together but I do have to move on and make the best of life. It was what he wanted me to do.
So good to have you back Del. IMHO, you are doing everything just as you should. At first it feels kind of strange to come home and nothing has moved or been touched. I think that was one of the hardest things for me to adjust to. Also, I talked to Larry a lot. Even tho he was gone and could not answer. I am happy that you have such a great attitude and outlook. Best wishes for your future.
