Things have been so busy, hectic and exhausting here for many months. Paddy Waggin' came home to live with us at 8 weeks old in early June and shortly after that my hubby's health began deteriorating drastically, as many of you know. It was devastating and, also, as many of you know, my beloved husband died here at home in the early morning hours of December 14, 2013. We both donated our bodies to the University of Buffalo's Anatomical Gift Division, so there was no funeral director involved to order the usual "Christian-type holy cards" that you quite often see at a wake. So my son, Billy, and I put together the In Loving Memory Remembrance/Celebration of Life" card attached here (I think). Last Saturday, we had the service. I was a nervous wreck. I worked very hard to make it special (not patting myself on the back, but wanted something very, very special for my very special guy). Many people commented on how beautiful it was...so I guess I did something right. We have a fairly large Church and it was packed...I couldn't believe the number of people there. Now, still much to do...no end to paperwork involved. Some family members still in town and are coming over later, so I had better get moving. After tomorrow, it will be just Paddy & I alone, again. Not too many folks around during the past two months since my hubby's death. I was fighting some severe depression and this has been one of the worst winters we've had in WNY in years. I have been away from this site for so long. Hope things finally calm down and I can get back to visiting with all of you...such a wonderful "support" group. Paddy says, "Woof." That means Hi and Thank You for being here for "us."
