    Special Day Tomorrow

    Tomorrow.... Match 16th, would have been my husband's 74th birthday.... I know it will be a difficult day for all of us, but we hope to celebrate his life.

    Most of the family will attend church together, then we will all gather at the local Frisch's for lunch.... Earl and I...and Frisch's....go way back... It's not a fancy place, but holds lots of great memories... I plan to have a chocolate malt in his honor.... But... I have to be honest, and tell you that I dread the day.... I know from having lost my mother, in 2000' that birthdays are the hardest.... It's such a personal day....


    I've got to say that the last two months have been very difficult for me... I still can't believe my sweetheart is gone, and that I am living alone...and that I am now responsible for everything.... I feel that a part if me .. The best part... is gone... It feels so wrong not to be part of a couple anymore.... The aloneness is always with me.. Even when I am laughing, and having fun with the boys, I feel that emptiness... I am always aware if it...

    You guys have been a tremendous help.... Thank you again for your constant support...

    Hugs to you! I can begin to pretend knowing what you are going thru. I know when I lost my dad how hard it was, but I can't imagine life without Monkeyman.

    I hope you enjoy some specials memories and drink that malt w/a smile on your face!

      We'll be thinking of you Sandy. My late hubby would have been 74 this month on the 27th. Not being a couple is a very hard thing to accept when it isn't your choice to be a single.

            Hi Sandy,
            So sorry for your loss. I lost my mother 3 years ago and it is still difficult.
            My hubby is still by my side, but I sometimes imagine life without him. Hard to
            even imagine so my thoughts go out to you. Our dear friend, Bill, just lost
            his "bride," as he still referred to her of 64 years. He is having a very difficult time
            and we are trying to be as supportive as we can.

              Sandy, I'll be thinking of you too. Good to have your family close around you to help you face this first birthday without Earl. I think the first one is always the hardest, it was for me when we buried our first baby. You already know it will be emotional, let those emotions have their time, feel, embrace, and when you are ready, you can release the pain of the day and hold onto the joy. ((((((Sandy))))))

                  Dear Sandy,
                  I am so sad that you will have to face this day but I am so glad you will have people around you to comfort you. I am amazed at your bravery in going to your special restaurant. I'm not sure I could do that. I will be praying for you tomorrow and more especially tomorrow night.

                    i will be thinking of you tomorrow. i can understand your feelings when my mother died i watched my father fall apart every morning he would come into the kitchen and by the time he reached my arms i would literally hold him up.losing the one you truly love is very hard for those of us left behind. tomorrow if necessary lean on your family for support it may be a painful day but remember him and know he will be there by your side . my father always saw a white butterfly when he was going thru a really tough time,it still shows up today when needed .our loved ones don't really leave us only their physical being.

                          You go have that malt and celebrate what was!
                          I bought a B-Day cake and celebrated my hubby's after he passed......you're right birthdays and Fathers Day was always the toughest for me too!
                          Now you hang in there and talk about the good times.....you will enjoy remembering all the funny things everyone will come up with! God Bless you Sandy!

                              Sandy, Glad you let us know how you are feeling and as you can see your friends here support you and grieve along with you. So laugh and cry today and drink that chocolate malt as that's the best way to honor him.
