Just a question or two...lol........ 1. where is the background picture taken on your sparkpage??? 2. was your husband a Veteran? or your Son??
I saw the statue on your page and just wondered. My husband is a Veteran, our son is due home from Afghanistan week after next...I pray God he and his buds get to come home... they are physically/mentally exhausted.
Awww . . . thanks for the medal! Spark People really deserves the credit. I had lost 20 lbs. before joining SP, and my total weight loss is 90 + lbs., and will celebrate maintaining it for one year in January! Great feeling.
I hope you are feeling better soon. I too have lost a son at the age of 20. My friend just lost her husband and he was 48. She needed help getting through the planning and i'm thankful to be there for her.
