  2. Dear Poppy Vic,
    It has been 7 weeks since you crossed. I can imagine that you miss the touch of your girls, and that they miss you.

    I also know you are watching over them, and that you are sending them love every single second of every single day. I pray that they feel you, and know you are with them, so that their pain is bearable.

    We are thinking of all of you often.

  6. I know it's been 2 months of pain and heartache, dear Ann, and I realize all of the "anniversaries", especially of this first year without your wonderful soulmate at your side, will be difficult and full of sorrow...This tribute is a beautiful reminder to all of us of a special and unique and lasting love that will never leave you...Wishing you strength, comfort and peace as Vic watches over you now...Sending you prayers, love and hugs everyday, sweet friend...J

  12. Poppy not being able to make his own memories or be a part of your future are reasons that we must fight to find a cure for that evil cancer!!

  20. It's so hard to have dreams shattered and to lose someone you love. We like what you said in the other post about treasuring the moments you hoped to share and storing them up to share with him one day.

  32. Seven months go by so fast, and so slow. I'm sure it's both easier and yet harder as time goes on. Hugs to you, and comfort as you go through your grieving process.

  50. We met in '66 at Strayer College, and boy did we have fun. We traveled many times to the Playboy Club in Baltimore where we watched the Bunnies play. In the 70s we worked together from the White House to the Capitol on the Hill.

    I watched your children grow from babies to beautiful young Adults, who have children of their own.
    Even though our Friendship was tested at times... IN our Hearts, our Friendship was always there. I miss the laughter & long talks we use to have.

    Rest in Peace my friend. I will only say Good-bye for now, however I look forward in meeting you again when my Journey is complete.

  52. I don't know why I visited here today but your tribute and memorial has brought tears. The poem your husband wrote to you about your secret place made them flow. How lucky you are to have been loved by such a kind and gifted person.

    I cannot begin to understand how deeply your life has changed in just 3 short years, and how hard that journey has been. There was such beauty and love in the years you shared with your Vic, and I hope now that sustains you.
