Of course many of you would know that the marriage only lasted 13 years, some of which were quite turbulent, and yet out of those 13 years there were many good things, most importantly two much loved children, through whom I now am proud to have 6 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren.
As you also know my second marriage has worked out better than one could possibly hope for, even with a few ups and downs, but then life would be dull without them wouldn't it. I often feel somewhat sad for Aubrey that his second marriage ended so badly but hopefully his third marriage, very late in life to his long time partner is working out well for both of them.
Phil has been such a wonderful support for me with the loss of our Precious and yet I know he is grieving as much as I am being without her. I would truly be lost without that man in my life. We celebrate our 47th wedding anniversary in September. Perhaps a couple of days away for a second honeymoon? Now there's a pleasant thought.
Family (with phone calls and flowers) have been wonderful to us as well as many blogging friends and also friends on Facebook. So many kind thoughts can only help to make us feel so much better and lighten our mood. Our special thanks to everyone. xx
