I need a hug!

Throughout our marriage when I asked Bill for a hug he knew that I was feeling sad or alone about something. I would ask and he would oblige with no hesitation, even if he was mad at me! Bill would say that we were a perfect fit. I fit just under his arm in a way that made him feel protective and in charge. Bill was very sweet and never felt uncomfortable about being affectionate. The kids would giggle when we would hug or kiss but I think it was a good example for them. I would give anything to feel his arms around me again!

Would a virtual one help knowing that along with that hug comes so much love from your Mom?

Debi,

This may sound strange to some. When I am feeling very low, afraid, worried, sad etc and can't stand it anymore I try and imagine God's loving arms around me. Sometimes I really feel them and sometimes I don't but even when I don't I know he is here with me.

Although it will never compare to your wonderful Bill sending you a Thousand Hugs!

I know it's not the same as coming from Bill but sending you a huge hug. xoxo

It will never be the same or take their place, but you have hugs coming from people all over every day. *hugs*

Dear Debi - how do I explain that while we've never met, I have benefited from "knowing" you?

Maybe because a few years ago, I started getting to know a beautiful young woman who would soon marry your son. And through her stories, I got to know the love that shone through him to her. And through their stories, I got to know the love that shone through them from you and your beloved Bill. And the bigger story was one of a beautiful, wonderful, vibrant family. Who does not benefit from being close in any way to that kind of joy?

And even now in the aftermath of a tragedy that should never happen to something so wonderful in this life, that love is still shining through. It's evident and amazing and you are all inspiring even if you don't want to be, don't mean to be, and rightfully wish every single day there was no reason to be.

So while you don't know me, you're getting the biggest virtual hug I can muster up anyway. You will continue to be in my thoughts.
