Quote from: Flying Bomb on December 23, 2021, 05:13:08 PMIf you have lost a wife or husband in recent years why do people, who know this, send one Xmas cards wishing you a, 'Merry Xmas.'Some are more thoughtful and send just a, 'Seasons greetings,' card.I put the former straight into the bin !

Seasons Greetings, Merry Christmas whatever the card says at least you know you are in that person's thoughts.
Quote from: Scrumpy on December 24, 2021, 08:52:46 AMIt is very difficult for people to know what to do for the best.. Christmas still goes on with or without a partner.. and the sadness is ours.. not that of others..

Quote from: Alex on December 29, 2021, 01:52:02 PM14th September and Christmas time are slightly different don't you think ? Can't you just accept that people, particularly grandkids are thinking about you and the grown-ups are probably hoping that you're coping over this period. You know you're not coping and no doubt you won't cope next Christmas and the Christmas after that, your family can but hope. I won't say anymore Phil because I don't want to upset you as your family obviously has.
