Widow Friends & Edith Ann

Dear John,
 
I'm feeling much better tonight. And that's the truth. (You'll have to imagine Edith Ann's sound effects here. I don't know how to type that noise.)
 
WFFs Trudging Along Together
It helped to talk to you last night. And I had a long talk with the Widow Friends;  they were wonderful, as they always are. There is great benefit from facing up to how you feel - when you look it in the face, sometimes it runs away. And I had a good day at work. It was the Feast of the Ascension, as you know. Since the local Amish community keeps the Feast, bless them, about half of town was closed. Some of the plants closed for the whole week, since Monday was Memorial Day and today was Ascension. It helped to have a slower day and catch my breath a bit.
 
Thank you for listening to me. And my thanks to you, and all of the guys, for bringing all of us widows together. We would infinitely prefer to have you back. But, if you absolutely had to leave us, thank you for being sure that we found each other. They say the things to me that you would say if you were here. I can't imagine living without them.
 
So tonight, hug all the guys for me. While you're all in one place, you might take some time and pray for all of us. We'd love to have you visit us in our dreams. But first, please review the Dream Visit Rules we've talked about, and plan something pleasant to do while you're here. No nightmares allowed!
 
Longing for you,
Joan.
