It's been 2 years tomorrow since my sweet DH died..I can't believe how the time has flown by. It feels like so long ago, yet almost like yesterday at the same time. The date has crept up on me.

Anway I just wanted to remember him here and thank everyone here (and those IRL) who have sent/ continue to send positive vibes to me and my children.. MDC has been a haven to me of sorts these last 2 years for both escape and support!

RIP Darren

Blissful Mama to DD-(5), DS-(6) and someone new due in November!

mama. I remember your posts 2 years ago, and I have thought about you so much since then. I'm glad you have MDC for support.
Thinking of you and your children at this anniversary...

I remember when you posted about your DH, too. I can't believe it's been 2 years either.

I can't begin to imagine how hard some days must have been for you. You must be an incredibly strong woman. I hope now you have many more happy moments than sad ones.

I, too, remember, because my son was born around this time. I am so sorry for your loss, still, and wish you lots of love and strength.

April, I saw this in new posts.

Yesterday someone was telling me that they sang their DS to sleep with Ripple...and all I could think of was Darren.

Every time I see a rainbow, I think of him. Every time I hear LOS or drive through downtown, I think of the night I met you guys. And how it made all the difference in the world to have the two of you as friends in this strange, foreign land. And how when we went out, I didn't feel like an awkward third wheel. I felt safe, cared for, and I had a hell of a lot of fun.

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
i fear
not fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)
