Watch out AN, you're gonna get fired!!
I'm so sorry to hear of all these devastating losses in such a short time (and your Camaro!). You take as much time as you need, and Christmas can stay as long as necessary.
It's good to hear that you are with friends. Keep taking care of yourself.

MH, thanks for taking the time to pop in and see us. I, for one, will relish the Christmas decor that much more.

I happen to love the Christmas theme. That was the theme when I first joined in December of 2010, and I was shocked when the colors changed to purple.
Really good to see you here.

So glad to hear from you MH! Leave it up until next January!! In honor of DS.
Sorry about the car but I can't help with that. But if you need SQA, let me know.

MH, so glad to see you're back and with your sense of humor intact. DS would love that you're doing well in spite of the pain. I've thought of both of you daily.
Sorry about your car.

Dear MH, I'd happily see the Christmas theme insitu for 12 months in DS's honour. I love the season too. Would make a change for us Aussies to have a cold Christmas halfway through the year.
You are loved, never forget that.
May we know them,
May we be them,
May we raise them.

Hi MH. Thank you for stopping by. I'm sorry about your car. Seeing as it's my Christmas Eve right now I love leaving up the Christmas decor for as long as you like in honour of DS. We are always thinking about you! (((MH)))

I hope you don't mind, but SI will remain decorated for Christmas season...
Oh HECK YEAH. That means I can follow MH's lead and not take down my Christmas decorations(from last year)!

I think Christmas decorations are sparkly, beautiful and joyful just like DS. They should stay until you're ready to take them down.

Hope is never lost. It exists within you - it is real. It is not a force in and of itself - it is something that you create with every thought, action, and choice you make. It is a gift that you create for yourself.

Thanks for the update MH. Sending good Carma mojo your way!
And I'll also sign the petition to leave the Xmas lights up for the year in honor of DS.

Yup - good to hear from you, MH. I'm very sorry for you other losses.
I, too, was thinking that keeping the Christmas theme for a year would be a nice way to mark DS's passing, since she loved Christmas.

I'm so sorry to hear about your losses. You are in my thoughts daily. I am glad to hear that you're with friends right now.
If it's all right, I'd like to also sign the petition to keep the Christmas decorations up all year to honor DS. In fact, I'm taking my decorations down tomorrow, but I'm going to leave something "Christmasy" up just for DS all year.
Did she have a favorite decoration (snowman etc...)?

Think of it as extending DS' final day with us for a little while longer.
Keep it up all year - she deserves that and more. So good to hear from you MH - there are so many people sending you love from around the world.

I am so very sorry for your loss of such a wonderful partner. The world has also lost a very special and unique person.
You may not remember me but I remember you and DS from that "other infidelity support site" (operated by a private detective agency) back in 2001. In 2002 when that site changed to a fee-for-service site, DS contacted me and invited me to join the new site you had just created. I joined as member number 194 in June 2002. Although I didn't post much, as my life took a new turn and I put the heartache of the past behind me, I still had some brief contact with DS over the years on this site.
DS was a great inspiration and mentor to so many countless individuals who visited this site. She will always be remembered with fondness and admiration.
I offer you my deepest sympathy for your loss, and as difficult as this has been, this world is a better place for her life and how she used it to help so many.
