Not crazy at all Bill,
I still cry over my Bazzle boy sometimes, and seeing his pictures, and talking to him every day as if he were still here makes me feel like, in a way, he's still with me.
Good luck with the holidays.
Audrey

Not crazy at all. I love the screensaver. Like my calendar I keep making of Ali. So sorry to hear about Sonny.

i think its a time to reflect and remember bill . Is it easier to just forget? well maybe that's for some but not for you as celebrating and remembering otis and sony lives is so much more than not

Its nice that tami lets us know and bring attention to our babies

Bill,
You gave so much to Otis and then, even in grief opened your heart to another diabetic, no doubt knowing that there would be more heartbreak but all the pain is worth it when you consider what we get back from these guys. I hope to be at a good point in my life "after Maggie" in the future. I can't lie that I struggle but you guys keep me hoping it will get easier. Thanks for sharing your boys with us.

Amy

Can't believe we went by the 4th anniversary of Otis' passing without me mentioning it??

Oh well, he knows how much I miss him from our chats every morning. I'm sure he and Sonny are enjoying themselves keeping an eye on me.
