It is such a courageous and generous thing that you are doing. You made me cry... You are providing what my family desperately needs... I am a 28 year old widow of almost seven years with three young children, and basically no family support... My children need so much more than I can give them. We get by, and we'll make it; what I'm saying is that there is an emptiness for them that I cannot fill. I am only one person, not all the others they are missing in their lives... I cry so much over this... It's so overwhelming, moreso as they get older... I am now seeing the aftermath of our loss, and trying to put us all back together again.... please let me know where you are, you're an angel...
