    yeap! One year has now gone by with out Cathy giving me crap!!! I miss her almost as much now as I did the day we buried her remains. I was actually doing very well..until I read a story about a guy I know on my gun-board who had lost his dog the day before and buried beside the last trail they hiked together. I remarked that I hoped maybe Cathy could keep an eye his dog for him till he could do it himself. She would have been very upset over him loosing his dog and all.

    We are doing OK and have moved to central Iowa to start over with Jill and her youngun' now for the most part, still have a few things to do in CB yet but it will get done.

    We are here and surviving as best we can. You all take out there! I do come back every now and again to say hi and let ya' all know we are still here. :) Bye for now

    Time is a great healer Arron. So glad you and Adrian are doing well and starting a new chapter in your lives. We never, ever forget those we love and have lost. We can, however, always make room in our hearts for others. Take care and blessings to you all.

    Time heals all wounds. Life does go on. You will never forget her, but time does make it easier. Good luck to you and your son.

    Thank you for keeping in touch. I'm so happy I was on to see your post. How is Adrian adjusting to the move, Jill and her kids? I'm sure Cathy is taking long walks with your gunboard friends dog. As I'm sure my brother is petting my pup until I see them again.

    Give our hugs to Adrian and tell him to give one to you from us.

    Best Wishes!

    He is doing Very well and really likes it here. Yeah he does get a bit "Homesick" from time to time and tells me he misses his Mommie! I tell him I know that you do and I do to! ALOT! I try to take Cathy's ashes that we have with me to "special things" he does. Kinda of feels right to me. and helps me to stay connected with her I think.

    We are "plowing through" there is no moving on in the sense folks seem to think...I thought that way once myself. No longer. it is liek there is this BIG SNOW drift that you can only lower the plow and hammer the gas pedal and smash it head on and keep going, sometimes faster and most times..very slwoly almost to the pint of stopping! But it is a way each of walks and some do better than others. I had time to get ready...even though it did kick me in the backside at about 3 months. But I had a "visit' from her to let me know it would be fine and that I would be OK! Strange but true! Shortly after...Jill and I met on the Website and started sendign e-mails. She is so much like Cath it is scary sometimes! Anyways..... Thank you all for making Cathy feel alive when she was here. She made soem really neat things from ideas she got here..most of them were "gifted out' to folks who she knew would love them! take care one and all. Arron(Cathy's still here guy)

    Hope you all can read "between the lines" some of my typing is not the best! I try to go to fast sometimes and I screw up alot of the words and sometimes I miss a few of them to correct. :)

    I know it was a tough year for you, but you need to take it day by day. The first couple of years are really hard. Hey at least you had a "visit" from her and I am sure she sent Jill to you also. You know that she wouldn't want you to unhappy and down all the time. I would like to believe she wants you to move on. Take care
