Thinking of you and JOE / Faye Martin (Friend of Janet )
My dear Janet,
I just visited your precious Joe's memorial site and wanted to tell you I'm thinking about you and him. I got tears in my eyes when I saw the cemetery headstone with both of your names on it. It is really beautiful and says so much about your love for him.
I think about all of our loved ones often and about my old POS/FFOS friends, too.
Just wanted you to know how much I miss you. To this day it doesn't take much to make me cry when I realize my life with you is over. I've made myself learn to enjoy life and it's not as good as it could be but it's a lot better than I thought it would ever be. You were my life and I still find it hard to live without you. It's even harder when you have to act like it's quit mattering to you because that's others expect from you. I think it would upset them terribly to know how many nights I sit with tears running down my face. I try not to dwell on the lonely sad parts of my life as you well know it would take nothing to throw me into a full fledged depression. Love and miss you.

Hello Janet and Joe, I was so happy to meet you last year at the retreat. Joe, keep shining on Janet and be with her during her flights. Hanging tough, kid. Peace and love, Diane Close
Beautiful tribute / Maggie Parker (none)
Hi Janet, Wow, what a beautiful tribute to your Joe. It made me cry. He was such a handsome and lucky man to have you in his life. It also made me think of my brother Ken who committed suicide 5-12-01 Your Joe sounded so much like my Ken. He was handsome, very talented, hard worker and he too fought alcoholism for most of his adult life. I have just buried my grief tried to moved on but its so hard. I miss him so much. I hope your grief journey gets easier as days go by. I know the pain never goes away. It does ease with time. Take care, Maggie Close

Hi Janet You have done a beautiful job of updating your website for Joe. It is really easy to see what a wonderful man he was as I look through your pictures and read your comments. May this new year bring you peace and comfort and healing. You are a blessing to many as you share your grief journey! Close
I just visited your updated site for Joe. It's moving, a beautiful testimony of your love for Joe.
As I looked at all of the photos, especially the photos of the 2 of you as a couple, I could not help but see the strong connection you had with Joe, and the love he had for your family. How special that Joe lived to walk Melinda down the aisle at her wedding! That must be one of the greatest honors of his life.
As I was reading your comments about Joe, it just came to me that Joe may not have lived longer, because ... he lived his life. He lived his life, so it was time to go.
That probably is not a sensible comment, but think about it. Maybe ...
Just Missing You / Janet
Just missing you and wanted to let you know we are having a holiday chat tonight. It will be similar to the peace fires we have had except we will be lighting candles. My internet friends sure come up with awesome ways of sharing our remembrances. I am thankful for them and the way they have helped me survive this past year. You would have loved their spirit and love of others just as I do. Everything is decorated around the house and even the yard, quite a contrast to last year. I sit here au night and it's so easy to imagine you walking through commenting on how beautiful everything looks. I miss your compliments and the love you showed me for all the years we had together. One day we'll all be together and have a big party and celebrate our reunion but until then just know I love you now and always. Close

(((( Janet )))) / Jane Speidel, Mom Of Adam Waymire (Janet's friend (son is Joseph's angel friend) )
((( Janet ))) It was so very good to hear from you! I think about you from time to time, and am blessed to have met you in person. No, I hadn't forgotten that Joe and Adam have the same angel date. I was a complete mess that day. The second year was much harder to get through than was the first-I assume because reality is harsh and the shock had worn off.
You've created an absolutely beautiful memorial site for Joe. I love the way that you've decorated his gravesite, with the decorative edging, lava rock, etc. I didn't know that we could do that! Even in death, the love you have for Joseph shines on and reflects your inner beauty Janet. I am saddened that you are having to endure this loss, and agree with you completely, Suicide in not the answer.
I've heard the voice of Gary Allan, however I didn't know much about him, nor did I know that he had lost his wife to suicide. I will be shopping this weekend, and I do have his "See If I Care" CD on my shopping list.
Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers and sending (((((( HUGS)))))) to you. May you find peace in memories and comfort from the heavens above. May you feel Joseph's presence and know that he's with you in spirit.
Beautiful tribute / Patsy -. Paul's Mom Vande Ven (Retreat Friend )
Janet - this is an awesome tribute to Joe. I know how hard it is to create these sites I love what you have done with this. I need to update Paul's site, but I have been finding it very difficult lately to even go to the site. I also love the pictures of your Joe garden at his gravesite. It looks like such a nice place to visit and just sit and talk to Joe. I may "steal" some of your ideas to add to Paul's site at some time if you don't mind :)
Joe - Janet is a wonderful, strong, loving person. I had the pleasure to meet her at the Small Fall Retreat and she is so very nice. I can understand why you loved her so much. I know she misses you so very much, and remember she is going to pass away on your birthday just to make your headstone look cool :) Close
