    Will you also be posting a Global Happy Emperor's birthday to all Japanese? And I seem to have missed the the Happy Dominion Day greetings for the Canadians last week...

    Not to deny the Americans (myself included) their celebration, but is it necessary to be so exclusive on a board that is supposed to promote inclusiveness?

    I think anything positive and friendly should be encouraged on this forum.

    I'm not American and I couldn't care less about Independence Day, but am still happy for those that do celebrate it to share their well wishes.

    I'll be wishing the Aussies on here a happy Australia Day in January!

    Thank you and I second the words and hope all remember why we celebrate and what was fought for and how hard won it was gained.

    RULE NUMBER 1.....Don't Panic
    RULE NUMBER 2..... Don't forget rule Number 1

    Great moments often catch us unaware-beautifully wrapped in what others may consider a small one.

    I may not have gone where I intended to go,
    but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

    Today is a very sad day for me, and I am sitting home with windows closed. This was always a happy day for us, every year we looked forward to see the fireworks. Last year my husband was supposed to start oral Chemo Xeloda on July 1st. but he said that since he didn't know how he was going to feel, he will start to take it after the Holiday, he wanted to see the fireworks, and celebrate the day. Today he is in the grave, and it is a very sad day for me. Will always be for the rest of my life. I cannot see the fireworks by myself without him, it is very painful to remember how much he used to enjoy it.

    (((((((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))) cari, I am so very sorry to hear of this. In time the pain will lessen but you will always remember. Remember the memories he and you made together and remember the way he was in life. In time you will move forward with your life and it is not a dishonor to his memory, as what would he want you to do? When I am no longer here I want my Tom to go on and live life and find someone eventually who will be kind and loyal and loving to him and be there for him when he needs her as he has been for me.

    Topazil

    Thanks so much, what you are telling me helps a lot, I really need to hear this. Believe me, I am trying very hard, but it is very hard, and one of the things which makes it very hard for me to accept that my husband is gone is that I know that he was very worried, he was dying and was worried thinking if I was going to be able to survive by myself. He was a devoted loving husband, very protective, and wanted to do everything for me. I think he was worried that I couldn't even open the three lacks in our house, he was always the one to open, and lack the door, I never opened or lacked the door. He was worried about living me alone because I am afraid of everything. Since he is gone I have been sleeping with the lights, and tv on, I was even afraid to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night when he was with me. I am doing all of that, but I don't know if he knows that. This is the pain I have, I didn't know he was dying, if I knew I would have told him not to worry, but after he died I realized that he was worried for me. This is terrible to have to live this way, six month have passed by, and it seems like it just happened. During the day I go to the cemetery to visit him, but when I come back home and he is not here, and the night starts it is very, very sad. I hope God hears you Topazil, and things will get better for me in the future. I wish he was a bad person, I wouldn'd be suffering this way. Thank you again.
