If I had your address, I would have sent a card too Sue. How lovely to have received so many, and the rose was chosen so carefully. You are in my thoughts, in this surreal time of limbo.I was thinking as I gardened, it is just as well you didn't move to Wales, as at least now you have your family close to you when you need them most. (((HUGS)))
Very true about moving to Wales and once we had grandchildren it was a no brainer!
I was also wondering how I could send a card Sue but you have my thoughts. May I ask if you are going to have a collection for a favourite charity that you support at Col’s funeral? I would be happy to honour your lovely husband if you were?
Well said, Catrina, I was thinking that too.
It shows at times like this just how much you are loved and have support of those around you.The cards and plant are lovely and something you can keep forever.You and your Family are in my thoughts Sue.xx
People can be so kind can't they Sue and all of us here in this little cyber space are thinking of you and your family at this sad time. Mitzi
I've found it's so comforting to have cards that show our loved ones are remembered with love and good memories, they also provide extra memories for us to keep. Thinking of you.
A card can often say what we can't put into words, plus there is comfort in seeing cards when you are home, knowing someone had a thought, and then sent the card. We are all together is sending our support for you and your family.
How nice to receive a such an appropriately named plant with which to remember your lovely husband by. Take good care of yourself during this time.
I think roses are so special at times like this. Every time it flowers it will mean a lot to you. Thinking of you. Jane xx
The cards help don't they, to know that you are in someone's thoughts is very special, and that rose, what an appropriate name it has. I hope it blooms to bring you happy memories year after year. Please let us know the charity that donations will be going to after Col's funeral and then all over the world a charity as similar as possible to that one can be donated to by your readers.Your in my thoughts, more often than you may realise. xx
I hope your beautiful rose blooms often and brings you smiles as well as memories. Love to you. Meg Xx
Sending huuuge smooches xox
Treasure the cards. I have kept the mountain of cards from when my son died. I get them out from time to time and they are a real comfort to know how much people were thinking of us.
I love the idea of your blog readers donating to a worthy charity in Col's name. Please do let us know if you decide on one.
Yes, please let us know if we can donate to a charity in Col's name! And yes, I would love to send you a card. I know how hard these times are. Shame it won't be a surprise though ;) You're in my thoughts and prayers, dear Sue!
Thinking of you every day Sue.Hugs-x-
people can be so kind. x
You're in so many people's thoughts Sue. xx
Little stretches of normality is definitely the way to go Sue. Thinking of you and your family too.
Lovely cards, flowers and thoughts of caring and love. I wish there was something I could do for you. Please know I think of you often and send healing thoughts for peace and comfort.
May the love of your family get you through these difficult days.
Like Bovey Belle, I wanted to send you an actual card. I asked a couple of people if they would be willing to let me have your address, or their address, so that I could have sent it, stamped, in an extra envelope to them and they could have forwarded it to you. However, and I suppose because there are many weirdos out there, no-one even replied to me. They were 'keeping you safe' I suppose, but it's a shame that I couldn't get a card to you. I also am wondering about a charity collection in Col's name, he was one of life's good'uns and a donation to his favourite charity would be nice. Colette.
Not many people know where I live since moving away from the smallholding which was easy to find because of the campsite!Best to keep it that way online, but thankyou for the kind thoughts. More details about charities etc will be next time I do a post
I've read your blog for about 2 years now and almost feel as if you're one of my family (although I've never commented before) You are in my thoughts even more now than before. You are a very strong woman and what's even better, you know when to accept help and support. You were an amazing support to Col and he to you, of course. Your experiences and your continuing journey will be a help to many and it will help you to continue to record it. Please let us all know if there is a charity you would particularly wish us to support in Col's memory. I have lost a friend to NHL and know two other people living with it. That's the thing - once it's there, you have to 'live with it' which you and Col did so admirably. Best wishes. Mary
Thinking of you every day. Hugs from one Suffolk girl to another xxx
I would've loved to have sent a card, Sue, but don't know your address. You will just have to accept virtual hugs from me. As Mary says, if there is a charity you would wish us to support in Col's memory, please let us know. Margaret P
Glad to hear there will be charity to donate to. It's good to know we will at least be able to do something worthwhile in Col's memory. Take care.Mary xxxxxxx
You are often in my thoughts during the day tho I have never met you and don't even comment very often. I am glad to hear there will be info of a charity to donate to in Col's honor.
Thinking of you often. God bless.
You have my deepest sympathy. I am glad you are close to your family and will have their support. I'm in the midst of dealing with my moms trust, selling her house with the trust and the step-siblings, and coming out of the fog. All I can say is one step at a time.
You are obviously loved by many. I hope these cards and gifts bring you solace in this difficult time. ((hugs)), Teresa
Dear Sue, you are in my thoughts with love x
If Sue doesn't mind, if anyone would like to send her a card I am happy to receive them to my house as my address is already online with various organisations that I am involved with and I will then pass them to Sue.
