I am back ....

Postby Monika » Thu Apr 28, 2022 5:10 pm

Wow, it's been a long time. Last November my computer said "This connection is not private" every time I tried to access the KG Forum. I have now solved the problem (I think), so, here I am back, folks! Hopefully, it will last.

I went into Spring bits and bobs first, Monika but, it is lovely to have you back, you have been missed hugely and the forum just wasn’t quite the same….

Thank you for your kind words, OH. I am sure you all managed very well without me!
And just to update everybody: our grandson with terminal cancer passed away very peacefully at home at the end of February. He was up and about and fooling about with his little lad and his three young nieces until two days before the end. In fact, ten days before, they all went on a grand weekend at CenterParcs in Sherwood Forest and had a wonderful time. On the day of his funeral, when his hearse passed through the village where they lived, children from the school had hung coloured balloons along the way with personal messages, just as he would have wanted. Now he is the "brightest star in the sky" ......

Monika. Welcome.back. So sorry about about your grandson. He must have left a huge hole in your lives
And Robo too. A painful anniversary. Thinking of you both.

As somebody once said "you don't get over your losses. You just gradually get better at dealing with them"

Welcome back! My absence was purely about being elsewhere and not having much to say.

Dear Monika,

I'm so sorry to hear what you've had to go through. Same for Robo and anyone else in such circumstances.

My very best wishes to all of you.

Kay
