Dee i don't know if Tommy was a veteran or not, but if he was, you can get a head stone through the service branch that he served for nothing.

It rained really hard here in alabama today, which is a left over from hurricane Ike.

Glad you won't be alone on Tommy's birthday. Know I will be thinking about you!

Hi Mary,
I've really missed our chats. On top of everything else, my computer's giving me fits by shutting down without warning. My older son said that I needed a new computer and that Thanksgiving when he comes in, we'll get one. That's also when both sons and I will be getting a gravestone. I want them to be here with me for input.

Tomorrow's Tommy's birthday, so I'm going to pick up his one sister who lives here in town and we're going to go to the cemetary together. Then she and her husband want me to have dinner with them so that I won't have to be alone.

It looks like it's finally going to storm here, so I'm going to take Strudel in the shower with me so that we both can get clean before it starts raining.

Hugs,
Dee

(((Dee))) I am so glad you are back. I agree with everyone else that God is allowing Tommy to let you know everything is ok now. I have been thinking about you and little strudel!

I can't even imagine what losing your life partner must be like. You two have shared an amazing life and love and perhaps there is much of that bond that can last even beyond death. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I am so glad Strudel is by your side!

I have to take care of myself first, to be able to take care of the people I love.

I started Sparkpeople on 5/9/08 at 205 lbs. My ticker shows my start weight as 209 which was my highest weight in late April.

Oh golly Dee. So glad you're back and with us again! How very difficult to lose your love. How neat though that God is allowing him somehow to communicate with you in some way. I'll pray that you will have just such a blanket of peace each and every day and night in your home and in your life in general. Also know that we love you here and we're here for you should you need us!

Welcome back Dee--what a difficult time you have had this summer. I am sure that Tommy's visit in the dream and the sounds you heard were messages from him that he is OK, and that he is watching over you. I hope that you feel that comfort every day as you pick up your life again.

I am glad to see that you are back.

I am sure that Tommy is trying to tell you he will always be there in spirit for you.

It had been 9 years since I'd been to the beach, so the two days enjoying the ocean and pool were nice. Don't actually know how much I relaxed totally, but it was better than coming straight home.
I had a very vivid dream about Tommy while I was there, and am not truly convinced that it was just a dream. I had gone down to the pool area in my dream, and he was standing to the right of where the towel hut was. I couldn't believe I was really seeing him. I went up to him and asked if he was really there. He smiled and said yes. I put my arms around him and gave him a big kiss and commented on how warm he was and how good he looked. I talked to him about how hard it was seeing him in the funeral home, etc. and he said that he knew it was and that he was ok now. Then he told me that Aaron had a lot of work to do today and that he (Tommy) was going to teach a photography class and that he'd catch up with me later. He then turned away and disappeared. That's when I woke up. I can't get that out of my mind.
Also, the night I came back home, I was downstairs and heard a thud above me just like the sound I'd hear when Tommy would fall. I started to call to see if he was ok but caught myself. Then I rationalized that it may have been something outside that made that sound. Later I heard footsteps go from the bedroom to the front of the house and back to the bedroom again. I stayed downstairs till 2am before going up to bed. I haven't heard them since that night. Nor have I had any more dreams.

Hi Everybody! I'm back. Guess I have a lot of catching up to do with all the readings. Haven't done it yet though. Just wanted to say "Hello" and thank everyone for their support.
I'm starting back at the Y tomorrow morning. I spent Labor Day with Adam and Nicole in DC.--YES, I braved the DC traffic again!This time I had a GPS with me, along with Strudel. Too bad I didn't have a GPS when Tommy and I were trying to leave there after Adam's graduation.
Adam's Wedding was the same week as Tommy's funeral, and it was very hard to keep things upbeat, but I managed for the most part so that Adam and Nicole would have a happy celebration.
Aaron and Candi had me follow them to Hilton Head after the wedding because they didn't want me to come straight home. They had business there and wanted me to be able to see the beach and relax for a few days. We got there Sunday evening (August 3) and drove back to Charlotte on Wednesday August 6 and spent the night before we went our separate ways toward home. Walking back into the house alone was really hard. So is sleeping in our bed. I find myself reaching for him in the middle of the night, and he's not there. I guess that's why I'm on the computer right now. Just don't want to go to bed.
I'm so thankful I have Strudel! Don't know what I'd do without her.
Hope you all are well.
Hugs,
Dee
