    Hi Bev,
    You would be most welcome to visit, grape picking, I remember it well as we helped at a local winery for a few years with their vintage. My number is (edited for privacy purposes) I struggle with the thoughts of being here all on my own and becoming very lonely, I know I will be able to fill my time with my crafting and doing things around the house but it won't fill the special place that my wonderful boy holds in my heart. Sending you a huge hug and I will give you a call.xxxxxGem

    How are you going? I am feeling very empty and am coming crashing down from such a busy time and our three years of caring. My mind goes to you often. I seem to have lost your number that you sent via a message. Could you send it again. I would love to visit soon. Only if you would be ok with that. I am now free to travel and you are only a few hours away. Mynumber is (edited for privacy issues) in case you wish to call or maybe even text. I am grape picking tomorrow ( mon 20th March) but any other time please do. Much love, Bev

    Hey Gem,
    Happy you accepted my friend request. Yes, on the journey, past, present and future - tough on our PALS and on us too. Ron and I met 15 years ago and have been married 11. He can no longer walk and is waiting on his own wheelchair. Right now he has a loaner from a friend but it's not comfortable. When he's not in it, at the computer, he's in his popup lazyboy chair watching TV. Limb onset started with a little pain in his left calf in June. Now he has trouble talking too much, he gasps and chokes. So fast...I can hardly believe it. I feel like it's a nightmare I am (we are) going to wake up out of...and then I think, maybe he's just fooling with me and any second now he's going to jump up, run circles around me, hug me and tell me it was all a bad joke...ok, now I'm crying... Anyway - happy to meet you, Gem xoxo
