TBD on Ning


Slipped Away

We've grown older. As we grow we gather friends, especially in these days of Internet and social networking. But as the years pass we begin to lose the ones we love and while we are able to move on as we should, there is a part of us that wants to hold on...and to not let the world forget that someone existed, did their time and left us.


This is the place where those that are gone remain alive in our memories.


I begin it with some TBD members that live-on in my own heart, but everyone's memories are welcome. Open a discussion for anyone close to you that you choose not to forget.  Post photos, post the laughter, post the joy...post the tears.


This group is for them.

Today my SIL's mother died.  I have known Jo for the past 38 years when I joined the family.  It is sad to think of her gone.  She was a bright, fun lady who we enjoyed seeing when we went to my husband's brother's house.  Makes me feel older some how.  This month also marks the first Christmas with out my niece who died in April of this year.  She was the oldest daughter of my husband's younger brother.  It is a hard year for us all around.

This month, the 19th I think it was is the day my mother died.  She was another complicated person.  She was bi-polar and may have been skitzo too. The doctor was never sure.  But it would explain a lot of things that happened when I was growing up.  But in spite of the pain she and my father caused our family I loved her too.  So it is nice to remember her here.  I do miss her.

My father's birthday was yesterday.  William (Bill) W. Jaco.  He has been gone since the 80's.  Diabetes/heart problems.  He was a complicated man.  He had a very hard life growing up and a lot of terrible things happened to him as he grew.  Unfortunately he took out his pain on others and my sister and I had a hard life growing up because of it.  

But, he could be sweet and he could be so funny and fun.  I loved him in spite of the terrible pain he caused me and our family.

Feel free to post a tribute discussion about your mother.  She sounds like a wonderful woman.  I'd love to see a picture.

I lost my mother this past September 12th. I've been grieving along with my family since then. Mom had a sense of humor that served her and us so well through the long 2 years of her illness. When my sisters and I would be crying in the hall of the hospital you could hear her with visitors in her room laughing up a storm. She was dedicated to helping others, and worked tirelessly to that end. She was beautiful in every sense of that word. I'm at the point where I can finally talk about this without going berserk, but it still hurts so badly. Sometimes I exist in a fog state. I keep finding evidence of that: an open bottle of juice in the pantry, articles of clothing put up in wrong places, etc. But it really is better than it was. She was my mother, friend, mentor. I will keep on reaching out to life even though it looks so different now. I will keep trying my best to be like she was in ways that can make a difference. Love never dies and it never grows small.

I miss the many people from the old days with whom I have lost contact completely.  I never knew their real names; I only knew their avatars.  They might be alive and well, but short of some sort of incredible stroke of fortune, I'll probably never run across them again.  They've abandoned their old avatars, and I've abandoned mine; we will know each other when we meet again?

I've turned them all into discussions.  It's easier that way.

Yes, thank you!  What is the procedure for starting a new page?  Or do we just start a new discussion?
