Hugs for pbpatti

It is amazing on this forum, how we all become family in one way or another. Weather it is for our fuzzbutts, or the well being for humans.. It affects all of us..

The support that is on this forum is amazing, you can come here rant rave or just cry on someones shoulder.. Someone is always willing to listen and offer comfort, and sometimes solutions..

I would like to offer our suport to pbpatti..
She just lost her husband this morning. and wanted her to know that we are here for her if she ever need a shoulder to lean on..

my condolences to you patti
hoping this will get you through the rough times

So true Breeze! There are even real face-to-face friendships formed as a result of this forum. No wonder it's so addictive. It's good to see that there are still people out there who care about others and want to help with what they can.

So Patti, please do not hesitate to tell us what we can do to help you, whether in person or on the forum, we're all behind you and supporting you in this difficult time.

And death shall have no dominion.
Dead men naked they shall be one
With the man in the wind and the west moon;
When their bones are picked clean and the clean bones gone,
They shall have stars at elbow and foot;
Though they go mad they shall be sane,
Though they sink through the sea they shall rise again;
Though lovers be lost love shall not;
And death shall have no dominion.

- Dylan Thomas

I'm glad you've got family and friends around you, but if you ever need to rant after hours and hesitate to wake them up, we're here for you. And when you're up to it, rent 'Truly,Madly, Deeply' (the poem above figures briefly and poignantly in the film), sad but funny and wonderfully acted.

Patti, I am really sorry to hear about your hubby.

My deepest sympathy to you and the family.


God looked around His garden and found an empty place
Then He looked down upon this earth and saw a tired face
He put His arms around him and lifted him to rest
God's garden must be beautiful as He only takes the best.

My deepest sympathy, pbpatti - I lost my husband 2 years ago and I know how difficult this time is for you. My fur family was of unbelievable help in getting me through the rough spots and yours will too!

My prayers are with you and your family.

My sister lost her husband in March,two days after his 53rd BD...It still hurts us all very much.Especially knowing that his first Grandson is due to be born in a couple of weeks.But he will have his Grandpas name.
