wings and things


on February 15, 2016

Yesterday I wrote a post which I later edited because my grief sometimes interrupts my sense/ sentence structure. And I get worried that I might unwittingly upset someone good in Anthony’s family.

Candy is one of Anthony’s many nieces; she is also his god-daughter and Ming’s god-mother. But she and her husband live a long way away, up north on a station that suffers frequent droughts.

Her brother (the nephew who visits Ants every weekend), often brings Candy’s letters to read to him. I keep these in Anthony’s top drawer and often re-read them to him, which always makes his day!

Maybe this is an idea that could work? Maybe friends and relatives could email me these letters and I could read to Anthony?

Every time I read a Candy paragraph, he smiles. Thank you, Candy.

    What a Gem dear Candy is (and what a good idea from you, Julie) 🙂

  2. I think it is also the fact you are reading to him Julie. Your voice is his ballast and it is always filled with love.

    I have one word for this – “Sweet!” (You knew that pun was coming. Aha! No more sugar coating.) I love how you are asking for things that are helpful for you. Good for you!

    Remember when I had anyone and everyone send Al get well cards? We got so many I had them pasted everywhere in his room. He used to lay in his bed and stare at them. I know he loved them and he felt so special. People want to help make things brighter. Give them an address and let the treats come in!!!! Big hugs

  7. Yes thank you Candy for those letters they make Anthony so happy so keep them coming

  10. It is so challenging to find ways and means of communicating and letting our loved one know how important they are to many! … It’s such a good Idea! Diane
