Dennis Swartz Very sorry to hear about your wife's passing.  My Mother passed away in 2012 and I had spent every Christmas at my parents house - whether in the USA or in London - with them.  These past few Christmases Suzanne and I have spent with my Dad, either at our house, or at a good friends house, depending on who is cooking Christmas Dinner that year.  I'm happy to hear that you were able to spend Christmas with others this year.

Family all weekend, friends last night, not so alone with my dog today, as my bride is working a flight from New York to LA. I'm blessed and actually happy to have today to be alone and reflect. I'm off to the beach to walk my companion: Peroni. The days are long, the years are short, we're blessed to share our lives with loves, loved ones & friends, some go before us, but they are always with us. Merry Christmas Dennis Swartz !

Dennis Swartz a very Merry Christmas to you too!  I lost my husband at Christmas when I was 30 and I wanted nothing other than to stay in bed and pull the covers up over my head.  I'm happy to hear that your pain is lessening and that you'll be able to have pleasant memories replace the pain eventually.

Our Christmas was different this year with one brother terminally ill and another choosing to finally enter Detox on the 23rd.  God giving with one hand and taking away with the other!  We continue to plan for the worst and hope for the best.

My wish is that 2016 be a lighter and happier year for all.

My nephew is suffering from depression so we were glad that he came to family brunch.  At first he was rather testy with us but gradually calmed down.
