Life goes on...

We had such a lovely service last night for my darling Timbo.  His best friend officiated and did a wonderful job. He spoke lovingly and sincerely about Tim.  He told not only of their friendship as musicians, but of Tim's love of God and how faithful he was.  Not everyone knew that. Our little friend and trainer Chelsea also spoke of the many sweet things Tim (and I) have done for her over the past several years.  Little things that I had forgotten about.

People have just been wonderful.  Flowers, food, errands and chores have been done for me.  I'd like to post some pictures of the past few days, but for now I'll just show some of the flowers that are filling my house with love and beauty.

Thank you dear friends for being there for me, this is so different.  Bear with me as I learn what to do without him.  It just occurred to me yesterday that I hadn't seen any mail, because it always just appeared on the table.  He always got the mail.  Now I have to get my own mail. I have to get my own mail...

It's the little things, like the mail, that will keep cropping up. How blessed you are to have had the love of your life.

Hi Susan,
I just stopped by, by way of Viv's blog. I am sorry to hear of your loss, and I' sure I was meant to stop by as I have been where you are now. I lost the love of my life, John, on 12/31/01 and learned that life goes on. I am here and offer what ever I know to help you thru this time.

I've thought of you so much. You, even during this time of loss, are an encouragement and lift others up. How rare and beautiful that is in this world.

Peachy, I've kept you close to my heart. Your strength is truly amazing.
Tim was a wonderful guy and he will be sadly missed. He touched many lives. His memory will live on through all who knew him. ♥
If you ever need a shoulder to lean on or someone to talk to, you know where I am. ♥

Yes, the service sounds very nice..and I am glad his best buddy was there. It is always surprising when we discover that people who cared about someone we have lost also care about us!
As for the mail..yep, you have to get your own mail. That in itself is a bummer and brings it all to reality, doesn't it? But, you will get it and get it done and carry on because that's the way you are. I admire that about you...you are rarely defeated!
Love ya!
