🙏🏼 thank you, Denise. I've recently come to find that she was the only one I would tell everything to. I don't have anyone else like that--even my wife. I didn't ever build a support system that included not having her and I'm working on that. I find that in my depressed days, it's the worst of all, because depression makes it difficult to turn to anyone.

I hope you have the support you need as well with your grief. Writing is my salvation so I'm grateful for that and for the wonderful people I've met here, you, Skye, Ann Marie, and countless others. Now if I can get these gray days behind me and just approach the keyboard, then I know I'm back to a greater sense of normalcy.
