Until we disappear together in a dream

I'd like to give thanks ...

So it's been 10 weeks today since Damien left us. It seems so long ago since I last saw him or spoke to him. Sometimes I'm afraid that I'll forget certain things about him ... like the sound of his voice, the feeling of holding his hand, the details of his face. It's scary. I can still hardly believe that he is no longer here.

But one thing I know for sure is that he is present and that he is so grateful that everyone has taken such good care of me. So at this 10 week mark, I wanted to take the time to thank everyone for all that they've done ...

For all the phone calls to make sure that I'm doing OK

For all the food that has filled our pantry, fridge, and freezer

For all the diapers, wipes, food, and other necessities for the baby

For all the cat food, litter, treats, and attention to my other "kids" to make sure they are OK too

For all the visits to our home, to talk, laugh, cry, share stories, or just simply to "be here" for me

For all the cleaning of our home ... sweeping, dishes, laundry, scrubbing, and general picking up of stuff

For making all the phone calls that I couldn't

For stealing me away from the house for a while, just to get out

For the flowers & cards that filled our home

For watching & entertaining Colin so I could get things done

For helping me make the difficult decisions

For the advice & suggestions

For jumping in and helping out whenever needed

For taking care of things without hesitation

For the endless love & support from family & friends, as well as complete strangers who have reached out to me

And most of all, to everyone who came to Damien's Memorial Service, who travelled from near and far, who filled the chapel beyond capacity to say goodbye to a wonderful man ... I am forever grateful & truly thankful ... my heart was filled by all the people who loved Damien & who considered him a friend.

And a special Thank You to my dear friend Denise X, who started this blog in memory of Damien, as a place I can continue to share memories with everyone, and write of the journey I now embark on ... what a wonderful thing for Colin to be able to read one day

And especially to Linda (my sis), Richard, and Angela, who were there with me (and Damien) that night

Thank you all so very much!
