My Thanks, and I Need Your Email Address

First of all I want to thank everyone for their very nice comments to my previous post.

We went to the funeral home Monday evening to see J's dad. There were more than 500 people who came through and signed the guest book. The funeral Tuesday was packed. He really was a very good and much loved man. His wife and daughter are doing as well as can be expected. Andrew was on the phone with J tonight for almost two hours. I know he's not the only friend who is keeping an eye on her.

As for the sisters who lost their mother, well, they're hanging in there too, but they are still pretty torn up. It's going to be exceptionally rough for them for quite a while I'm afraid.

And now, Janie, I need your email. I have that link for you, but you don't have a contact email set up in your profile, and I can't find your AOL email address for some reason. So please email me or leave a comment and leave me your email. I think Donna had brought this up before -- whenever we leave a comment it shows our name as a link to our profile. And if the person whose blog we're commenting on is getting emails for each comment, then that email comes from a "no-reply" address unless we put a contact email in our profile. So, Janie, when I got your comment email, it told me it was from "Janie", and it linked back to your profile, but I don't know which email address is yours.

Okay, I'm off here for now. We just got back from a quick visit to my Mom's. I'll post another entry before we leave for Florida. Eler Beth is feeling better, thankfully, so the trip is on.

and you're right we need to spread the word so emails are added to profiles... so many times I want to respond to a comment and can't because it has no email. I hate doing the reply on their journal.

Still saying prayers for these families. It takes a long time and a lot of love, wisdom and healing to get past a tragedy like these.

Have a safe and fun trip to Florida! Soak up a little sun for me...it's starting to be in short supply around here!

Hugs, Beth

Joyce said...

Sounds like a rough time for all. My ex-husband is on his death bed (only 57 yrs. old) and my step-son is having a hard time with it. Lingering is harder than closure I think. We talk for hours every evening and he is so stressed at watching his dad die. A little prayer for Michael would help and I will pray for these families as well.
Hugs, Joyce

Good point, Lori, will spread the word about emails. All strength to all those affected by those recent deaths.

I wish everyone would put their email addresses on their profiles so we could easily reply back to their comments! Have a good evening.

Lori- i am so, so sorry to read about these sudden deaths. You were right in the comment you left for Mary.....sudden or not, death is just damn difficult to deal with. sometimes life just sucks...but then, somewhere, light shines through. it's just getting to that place that is heartbreaking. i will be thinking about all of you...and the 3 girls.

Joann said...

Thanks so much for clearing me up on that comment e-mail thing... I hated that I wasn't getting comments by e-mail anymore. Mine is added to my profile, but apparently, not 'verified'. So I will go try to do that now.

Thanks,
Joann
