SEPARATED

I have not been able to talk with Peggy in a long time.

Even if I do get to talk to her, she usually lays down the phone and walks away.

I do not belong in her world any longer and I know that I will remain separated from her for the rest of my life.

I feel such sadness as I watch the victims of hurricane Katrina.

Families are separated and desperately trying to find one another and as I watch their despertation, I understand a "little" of what they are feeling. My search is not as desperate as theirs because I know where Peggy is and that she is well taken care of and safe.

But I do understand the empty feeling of a search for someone  you love.

I have been desperately trying to find Peggy since she went into the nursing home.

I know that she is there but...

I cannot find her and I cannot help her but I will continue to try.

I Love You Today, Peggy!

Separted but only for a short while. You'll meet her again one day and she will be perfect, without blemish, just the way you remember her. Love you, and pray for you all the time.

I love those childhood pix i see in your journal!

Yep... it is still good to try.  Because one day she will know that you never game up on loving her, reaching for her, or trying to connect with her despite her disease.

you are good.
love,
Wendy

I, too, believe while she does not know noe, eventually she will once more feel your love and dedication. I also know that is a small comfort in a large sea of pain, and I am so sorry. Margo
