Thanks, Terry. I'd had my three nieces with me for the four days before the anniversary. So no time for the emotions to surface. After they left Monday night - it all began to bust out. But because we have the two surviving daughters, and the two little grandkids, the anniversary itself ended up ok. Facebook contacts make a big difference. Lengthy messages from a friend of Tom I'd never met. It was all good. And this AM, the bad was behind me and I was OK. Life goes on. Life is for the living - the best phrase of advice from a relative, a phrase that helped me so much after my first child-loss. And then again when Tom died.

I couldn't agree more, Barb that it certainly does help to have a house filled with love and laughter...children and grandchildren. You are blessed.

Thanks for sharing your day.
