Much Sadness

September 15, 2019  |  Uncategorized
To live in the hearts of those you love is not to die.”

It’s hard to write this blog post even though it’s two months since Alan passed away. I’d like to try to return to the blogging world in time as I do miss it. My life has been turned upside down and nothing prepares you for this but I’m taking things a day at a time. I’ve wanted to write this for weeks now but just couldn’t find the words.

I’ve taken a small step into the Instagram world too as I think I may find that an easier way to connect sometimes. WordPress have changed their settings since my last post so I’m not sure how to add the link for this but you can find me under cats2stitch.

I hope to be back soon. Take care.

  1. Oh dear Ann, I am just so sorry. I am so glad that you were finally able to share this with everyone else. Putting this post up was very hard I know, but it is good to let everyone know. You will receive support from friends, and that is always a good thing. God bless you and your son during this most difficult time Ann. I am still praying for you both.

  2. Oh no. Oh, Ann. I’m so sorry. You and your family will be in my daily prayers.

  8. Oh, Ann, I had no idea… I’m so very sorry to read this. Your Alan looks like a most special man and I’m sure life is feeling quite empty at times without him by your side. You have been through a lot of heartache over the past couple years with losing your mom and now your husband. I hope your happy memories of times shared with them will ease the pain–as well as knowing you have so many caring friends all over the world thinking of you. Sending you a hug from the U.S. ♥
