I was so amazed at the support that you and your family received from DU after your husband's passing. I have thought of you so often.
My (44 year old) father died suddenly when I was 17. It was such a traumatic event. I adored him and my world changed forever after his death. Looking back, my mom took care of us (two girls and a boy) while mourning our father/her husband.
You and your children have been on my mind for a while and I was so happy to find that you were still here. I enjoy your posts!
If you're ever in North East Georgia, let's meet up! Our past DU meet ups have included Ulysses, RubyDubyinGA, CatWoman, Mike Malloy and family and Kskiska (sp?) (who was the the first DU poster) among many others
