We Never Know

Hello, I know I haven’t published since March.  I wanted to write before my blog disappears like The Tablescaper’s did! 

I maintain a blog for my community and while I was busy running to the hospital, I must have missed the notice that I needed to pay my yearly fee.  I paid Go Daddy for the domain name, but apparently blogger is different, and I don’t know how to get it back.  Anyone know?

I want to thank those who saw my sad news on Facebook.  My dear husband of 47 years passed away suddenly on May 25.IMG_0209  He was doing well, driving himself to PT, and looking forward to spending time with the grandkids this summer.  Although the doctors told us he was doing fine, he had a heart attack and died.

It all seems like a bad dream.  I didn’t get to say good bye, and that really bothers me.  Thank you to those who wrote and sent cards.  I was deeply touched by your kindness!


Please keep us in your prayers.

My deepest sympathy to BJ on the loss of her dear husband, I am so glad she lives with her family.  They will be a comfort to her!  She is in my prayers.

Thank you for visiting.  Maybe I will blog again, you never know!

All the best,



  1. Oh Kathleen, I never heard this sad news and I am so sorry for your loss. I can understand how it all seems like a bad dream. For sure, you will be in my prayers. We would love to have you back blogging if and when you feel up to it. In the meantime, take care and may God grant you His Peace. PS - what a handsome man Mike was and you look lovely in your wedding pic too - great to see a pic of you :)

  2. Oh Kathleen, I was just stunned when I saw this post. I am so, so sorry for your loss. I knew your husband had been sick last year and that you had been driving a long ways back and forth to the hospital every day. I just assumed he was better and that you were just busy enjoying family. My heart just breaks for you. Please know that you will be in my thoughts and prayers, my friend.

    Take care of yourself and let me know by e-mail if I can do anything at all. I hope we'll see you back on the blog if you should feel up to it one of these days.

    Love and hugs,

    Denise at Forest Manor

  3. I know Mike's health had been a major concern to you the last few years, but I thought he was doing okay. My thoughts and prayers to you and your family at this most difficult time, Kathleen.

    There's one more star up in the sky tonight.
    Even though it is far away,
    its brightness and warmth
    still reach us here
    to make the night a little less dark.

  4. You are in my thoughts and prayers often and I can only imagine how difficult these days must be. And now dear BJ is walking the same road. Hugs to you and your family.

    not able to say goodbye to your love. Many blessings to you and healing thoughts.

    As for the Blogger issue, your domain name is with Godaddy and as long as that is paid, your blog will show. There is no yearly fee for Blogger...Free. Your blog appears fine.

  11. I completely missed your mention on Facebook. I am so sorry to hear this. I know how hard it is to lose a spouse. You have my deepest sympathy.

  12. Oh Kathleen, I have not been on FB very much and missed the news about your dear, dear husband.....I am so very sorry!!!!! I just cannot imagine.

I am so very sorry Kathleen.

  15. Kathleen, you know you have my sincerest sympathy. I hope that summer with your grandchildren has helped filled your very lonely days. Glad that Linda helped you with your blog.

  16. Dear Kathleen, I'm so sorry to hear about your husband. I'll be keeping you in my prayers. {{Hugs}}

    I've also been 'tapped' to maintain websites for several groups to which I belong. Adding to that, Picasa (my go-to photo editing program) has been retired and learning a new one is time consuming. I haven't done much blogging lately either. Life changes take us in different directions. I'm not giving it up completely and I hope you don't either. It's just nice to keep in virtual touch with those we've meet over the years. Take care of yourself and hope to hear from you again soon. Tell Alma we miss her, too. Zenda
