Many thanks for the love and support.
Lostcowboy, it is an honor to read your first post.
While re-reading this thread, I was overcome by sadness and cried for the first time in a long while.
And that is a good thing for me. I was able to let out some of the grief and mourning. It took a lot out of me. I had to go lay down for a while and fell asleep.
Waking up, I felt more at ease.
It is a miracle each time to me how this works; one man sharing with another man opens the door for so much hope and relief.
I'm doing the lawyer, CPA, real estate agent, therapist, psychiatrist, MD stuff on my own.
But living through this emotional, psychic change is an area that only other survivors seem to be able to help.
It feels good to be loved and comforted. It feels good to not be alone with this pain.
Many thanks to each of you guys (and ladies),
