    Blue - my comments Black - video comments

    When I create these posts, and then view them on YouTube, I read a lot of the comments by people. Some are very powerful, and tell of how the video has helped them, perhaps made them deal with something they were unable to, and in short a wide spectrum of emotions.

    As we all grieve, what I love about reading those comments is, it is almost like group therapy, because of how open they are in sharing. Even though you can't see those people, some posts are very powerful and filled with emotions. I am creating these posts for all of us. I am personally being helped by reading about others and how they are impacted.

    Also, I have just started numbering my posts for possible future location. When I create a bookmark you might notice a number at end, basically all that means is if you watch the video on our Grief site you will see no advertisement.

    If you go directly to YouTube you will see the advertisement. That choice I will leave in your hands. If a link does break, just use the YouTube link, it will still be shown in the original video location on the Grief website.

    I started to feel they left out the deep roots of farming in this country, but perhaps I was reflecting on the love of my own Grandpa and time spent with him hours on end, year after year working the fields. Thinking about it today, working the dirt today, I just felt like we, the farmers, needed a better understanding of what we do.

    In 1884, James Wells, Moderator of the United Free Church of Scotland, in his book The Parables of Jesus tells the story of a little girl carrying a big baby boy. Seeing her struggling, someone asked if she wasn't tired. With surprise she replied, "No, he's not heavy; he's my brother." In the 1940s, the words, adapted as "He ain't heavy, Father, he's my brother", were taken as a slogan for Boys Town children's home by founder Father Edward Flanagan.

    Over time I will share my thoughts with you. They are not in order sometimes, mainly because life arrives to me in memory moments. I hope you don't mind me sharing these personal times with you.

    When you have found the one you love sometimes it is hard to find the right words. Thankfully for the artists of the world, besides visualizing in their minds, they can put those thoughts into beautiful words that affect us so well.

    Beauty is only skin deep. How we appear to the one we love is deep inside us.

    It magically touches our heart, encompasses our mind, and takes us to a wonderful place. Two hearts, Two minds and Two Spirits become one with each other.

    The Rhythm of My Heart - Rod Stewart (lyrics) HD

    I attended Bliss College of Lewiston, ME my first year of college. We found out near the end of the school year that they had to close due to financial reason.
    They helped all of us transfer to the many other colleges. I was accepted by the University of Maine system@ the Portland/Gorham campus.

    Before we watched Bliss college close, I wrote this small poem for English class:

    Cold is the winter's wind,
    Yet free from all that binds,
    Seeking out to encumber all,
    Tossing, turning,
    Uprooting the weak and submissive,
    For exceptions are never found.

    The above poem was written in memory of the below event.

    I remember coming back from class, having to drive 35 miles in a big snowstorm. I was on the turnpike driving slowly, as visibility was nearly zero.
    I went off the road not realizing it, and stopped next to the middle guardrail on the divided highway. Luckily I had a CB and called for help. Eventually both me and the car made it home.

    When I picked my Mach 1 up in Burlington, NJ I bought a bunch of 8 tracks for my car player for the drive back to Maine. This is one of the songs I loved playing along the way.

    This ride was a special one. I had experienced so many things. I could sense the attitude of the country as I started my trip back home in California. Each state I passed through there was so much unrest going on.

    People either yelled or spit on you, and called you baby killers. Or they cheered, blew kisses and waved as you passed by. So much diversity. As a young man it was a lot to take in.

    But I stood proud in my uniform. I wouldn't let those who had not seen or experienced what I had shape my future. Too often I have seen people make foolish decision based on bits of information. By the time that information reaches the last person it is amazing how little it is like the first bit of information.

    We each gather our own special memories of life as each day passes. How we move forward each day, might be different from the day before, as we comes to those forks in the road ahead, and must choose our path. The direction you take is not necessarily wrong or right, it is just a guide for how you will carry on in life.

    When you're heading back home, and to the ones you love, time just seems to pass so slowly. On a long drive you see many sights that bring deja vu. It makes the trip so much more meaningful. It is almost as if you know what is around the next corner.

    Looking back, as I hit the NJ Turnpike, I remember asking the attendant which route was the best for Maine. He said, 'Where?" I chuckled, drove over to the adjacent restroom and pulled out the map the car dealer had given me.

    You see, entering the service was the first time I had ever left Maine on my own. You grow up quickly in the service, and experience many events that shape your future. Have faith in yourself and let your conscience be your guide.

    Being a Pisces, this next song hits home. There was always something about the water, whether fresh or salt. I always seemed to gravitate towards it in my life.

    To me, water has always been a friend to me. When I look back, my dad was a naval seaman in WW2, yet i chose the Army, the same as my grandfather, brother and uncles.

    Sometimes life is about nothing. Just live it and be true to yourself. You are the one who looks back at yourself in a mirror.

    I know I have not always been honest with myself at times. I guess life takes practice. We all make mistakes, but as long as we accept them, we can move beyond them and grow.

    I write to reveal myself, not because I want to, but because I feel better inside.

    It's funny. I remember all those rowdy nights in the enlisted men's club in Vietnam. Singing to all the songs about fighting. Cheering for the ones that talked of home.

    Enjoying the USO shows and thinking about what you were missing. Many drinks were shared with strangers at the start of the night, who became friends before we left at night. It was as if we knew, life can be fleeting, so enjoy it while you are in it.

    I remember when I was in Chu Lai. I went into the PX (Afees Exchange) looking for canned food for my area in the tent.

    To my surprise I met a friend from high school. We were in Tri Hi Y and graduated together. It was amazing. We talked, compared time left in country, wished each other safe journey, and then returned to our units. Small world indeed. He made it back safely.

    Sure life could be scary, but you soon realized that you were not alone. You were with all those others who were far away from home thinking about what tomorrow may bring. I miss those men, those nights. But we all lived for the moment. If there is one thing I will take away from Vietnam, it is that you don't dwell on the bad.

    After 3 knee operations, I left the service, not with a disability, but on my own terms and own two feet. There are so many soldiers who give of themselves each and everyday. Those twelve plus years were a time that will stay with me forever. Do I miss the service? Absolutely!

    Love is funny. Sometimes you don't even recognize it. Other times you can't help yourself.

    We all are a piece of paper in life. We are writing our story as we wake each day. Nothing is yet set in ink, so all those hopes, fears, dreams are ours to make of them what they become.

    Have faith in yourself. Believe, just believe.

    Like you, I miss so many people who have left us behind in life. I try to look back with fond memories. I try to bring to mind all the times those people have brought joy into my life.

    I have to look forward. Even though the path may be hard I will attempt to live for each day. I share these times with you to let you know though life has had heartaches, you and me can move beyond that to healing ourselves.

    Even though at times I may philosophize, the intent is pure. I hope some days I can bring a smile to your face. Perhaps help you shed a tear or two. Even help in some small way. We each are important.

    Life together with Nadine was filled with many good times and bad times. What was the best about us, we shared all our moments with each other.

    I was totally honest with Nadine in our 42 years of marriage. My faith showed me the way, and I never gave her a reason to doubt me.
    She in turn, shared all her sad moments with me, as her two brothers and one of her sisters and then her parents left this life. God, heartache is awful to overcome. At least we had each other to meet those times together.

    Loss is something you should try to share. It is too awful to meet without help. Though these speak of sad times, we all have to have to ability to cope. Doing it alone makes it extremely hard.

    When you have others who listen as you reach out seeking answers, it might help you focus. Personally in the military, I have experienced this. You can sense those present understand, feel the pain, and try to help you move beyond that stress to healing.

    One of the toughest things a soldier deals with besides loss, is lack of sleep due to all the different times they are needed. Many studies have been done to help soldiers learn to sleep through such times.

    So if you ever see a person dozing off, think about this, they are tired for a reason. Good or bad doesn't matter as much as the sleep they are missing. Once they learn to sleep at all times it will help them to deal with life's stress moments.

    I want you to think back of when you yourself were children. You had memories of perhaps bad times, or lost friends. Think of who you shared that tremendous loss with. We learn as we grow. We are here on this Earth for a very short time.

    Now I want you to think about those good times you had. The moment you met the one you loved. The time you became one when you married.

    The walks together. The events you shared together. The kisses, the hugs, perhaps the dancing. Of course those special moments alone for just your own two eyes.

    The children in your life if you had any. The moments you have shared with them over the years. All their tears you have taken away.

    All those bandages you have put on those cuts. All the hugs you had. All the stories you read to them.

    All those special moments your children shared with you. The first time they said mama or dada. The first time they walked. The smiles you brought to their faces. The first time they used the toilet. ;>) The first time they could feed themselves, with our caring watchful eye of course. Their first schoolday. Who knew my sons would become smarter than than dad.

    I remember one day, it was Father's Day. I bought a lottery ticket. I never usually buy them, as I believe life is what you make of it. I won $40. Nothing big, but it made my day.

    We all gain many experiences in life, hopefully the good ones are what you remember the most.

    We had two cars:

    It was winter in Maine. The snowbanks were very high. Nadine had two accidents in one day. They were only minor, with virtually no car damage. However, Nadine wasn't physically hurt (GOOD THING) except for her spirit, thank God. I drove her to work the rest of the week.

    When we purchased a house, we lived there for two years. We drove back up the street we had just moved from and the house we were living in was no longer there. It seems just after we left, the house burned down. Thankfully we had just moved a week earlier from there. (GOOD THING)

    I look back over our lives together. Nothing occurred that put either Nadine, and I or our children at risk. (GOOD THING)

    So even though life is a path of many events, as a general rule. we did share a wonderful life together.

    Photographs and Memories (Jim Croce - Lyrics)

    I remember the times in Vietnam. When mail call would arrive. You were excited for it. Hoping for a care package from home, or a letter from your parents or some friends. OR a letter from the one you loved.

    For those that didn't get mail, and there were many believe me. I was one at first.

    There was a big table in the recreation room . The table was piled high with mail from all those people back home (I mean hundreds of them), who had wrote to us soldiers.

    Perhaps to find a match, or to cheer up a soldier. Or from a teacher you might be learning something from. Or even perhaps playing chess by mail. There were photographs of girls of all sorts.

    I learned French from one of those letters from a teacher named Olin Wood. I also played chess with a science teacher by mail. I never beat him - oh well.

    Eventually, my sisters sorority inducted me into their chapter society (Phi Mu Sigma), talk about an ego booster. All of the sudden, I had 35 girls writing to me. My gosh, I was beside myself reading them all. My sister even sent me the State of Maine flag I could hang up next to my bed.

    One by one, I would set some letters aside. Finally four girls stood out to me. What amazed me was each girl seemed to know something of me. What I mean, the four girls knew my sister well, and she must have told them of me. Three of them eventually shared an apartment with my sister while they were student teaching.

    Unfortunately, one girl died in a winter driving accident going to her student teaching job on an icy road. Really sad. The other girls kept writing, but it just seemed like Nadine stood out the most to me.

    How can you describe a person that puts words on a paper, that can make you reread them over and over. She was from a big family like me, so we had one thing in common right off the bat. We both were middle children. Her mother was a teacher. Her father and brothers were lumbermen. Compared to them, I was the runt of the litter. ;>)

    Boy, was mail call a great time in my life.

    Here we go. During my two tours in Vietnam, we had roughly 3 to 4 MPC (Military Payment Certificate) changes. I guess counterfeit bills made it a necessity, or the wrong people like Charlie or the VC got ahold of it.

    We would be awoken at odd hours to facilitate the change. If you missed the exchange you you might lose your money. It was one of the necessary evils that war creates.

    Outside the gates to your base were many Vietnamese pleading with you to help them convert their money to the newly printed MPC. It was a crazy sight to behold.

    During my first tour, I arrived weighing around 210 pounds. By the time I left and made it to Burlington, NJ to pick up my new Mach 1, I weighed myself and was now roughly 146 pounds.

    I think being away from home, not really liking the food, you learned to eat less and less. Food was never on your mind, only your short timers calendar to your return home.

    As a young man still trying to find himself and who he was, I went through many days and nights questioning myself. Why was I here? What was I trying to prove?

    By the time I ended my first hitch in the Army I weighed in at about 165 pounds and felt the best I ever had in my life.

    The most awful thing in our lives is saying goodbye. There are no words that truly say it so beautifully as music can.

    Tomorrow looks so far away. It is as if, as time passes, the long walk down that hallway to the exit just keeps getting longer and longer. Our grief is real. Our heartache holds no boundaries.

    Vietnam significantly shaped my view of the world. It made me realize how fragile life could be. How capable we all are of making errors, that if not faced, can spiral out of control, from a molehill to a mountain.

    I worked the second twelve hour shift from 6 pm to 6 am. I actually liked that immensely. So I had the daytime, if I sacrificed some sleep, to get anything I needed done.

    The beach of South China Sea didn't open till 7-8 am, and was blocked by a locked fence. Of course during the day coworkers and me would climb over it, and have the beach all to ourselves till it opened up.

    I remember, loving to swim at an early age. I could see buoys in the water. I would race to the beach and jump in. It was great, working all that overnight sweat off my body and just swimming around aimlessly.

    I started to head out toward the buoy and realized something was moving in the water up ahead of me. All of the sudden this huge fish jump way the heck out of the water.

    It startled me as it headed in my direction. I think at that moment I could have won a gold for the fastest breaststroke to the shoreline. I am sure my grin was no longer on my face. I made it to shore.

    I noticed movement again in the water and I sort of laughed it all off. After that I made sure not to go out too far before the beach opened. I don't know for sure what the fish was, but it was about 6 feet or longer. It was not a shark that I know.

    I have posted these actual life experiences. They were not with the intention to ever make you feel bad.

    The posts were done with love, and understanding, that we all have shared loss that has taken the one(s) in our lives that were the very essence of our soul and embodiment.

    No one can feel your own loss greater than you and me. It is a part of our life that is no longer with us in the material world. All what they were, is with us in our heart and soul.

    We will wake each day, knowing he or she is missing. We only have those memories, those mementos and all the those tears today, tomorrow and into the future.

    My hurt and emotions are no more important than yours. We have shared something so personal, why, because we cared so damn much, and loved eternally our dearly departed.

    Of course words are not enough at times. But by each of us reaching out to one another, we are holding one another, sharing a tender moment of remembrance. I send my hugs out to each one of you.

    May tonight be the one you are searching for, to reach for the stars with your thoughts, and gather the strength to carry on, and find understanding and some form of peace.

    Our hearts are broken. We are missing a part of it that is irreplaceable. God Bless.

    I believe a brighter tomorrow is out there for each of us. I don't know how long it will take.

    Think of all those times as you grew as a person. Hopefully with many wonderful memories.

    We all seek answers in life. It doesn't matter for what. But it let's each of us realize, that we are seeking enlightenment. That is life in essence.

    We are now each in phase of our lives that is troubled. How do we continue on? How do we cope? How do we move on? Should we move on?

    Each choice that we make forward in our lives is based on the past. So many influences, so many events that have shaped us. So many people trying to tell us what is right or wrong for us.

    There is nothing wrong about that, as long as we realize that whatever we decide, Whatever we choose isn't another's decision to make.

    Don't stop listening to people. It helps you to see their thoughts, their beliefs, and what they have become as a person.

    BUT, and this is important. It is up to each of us to face tomorrow. It is us who will have to live with our decisions. Whatever you do, take it slow, move forward in life, and make your own decisions after you have thought it out.

    I hope you have found some comfort in my posts of thoughts, videos and so much good in the world. Tomorrow will come. It will be what you and me shape it.

    Tears are precious. They tell each of us that a part of our inner soul needs help. We will question why or why, did the one that we loved so much, have to pass on.
    DId I do something wrong? Could I have prevented it? There is nothing wrong in questioning ourselves. It shows that we do care. We are hurting for a material reason, not something imagined.

    I know it is so hard to talk about things that are so personal. The words are hard to speak. We breath hard, our head and heart hurts. Why?

    We might think: I don't want to talk as people will think bad of me, because I talk so differently. They won't understand me. They will think I am foolish. My loss is so different than theirs so how can I make them understand. It doesn't really matter. We are who we are.

    These doubts help each of us understand we are feeling so lonely. So lost in our lives. As I write these words for us over the past 40 plus days I have been reaching out. Not just for me. But for all of us.

    I may be a person from a different walk of life. But each of us have so much in common:

    -Those lonely days and nights
    -Seeking to understand why
    -Afraid of what tomorrow might bring
    -All the tears we have shed. We feel like a pin cushion, or a map on the wall with pins pointing to a sore spot, a memory fragment. Though each of our pins might be in different locations, they are there for a reason. But, we each have them.
    -We loved, we lost
    -The hopelessness

    Our sex doesn't matter, nor does our race, our faith or lack of it, age, language and past relationships. The one tangible thing we can share, is us, the emotions we are trying to overcome.

    No words, some words, or a long post by me, doesn't matter as much as we do. Reach Out.

    With each of us in various stages of our lives. I know it is scary to ask for help. I might be misunderstood. That loved one you loved with all your heart is our language, our common thread.

    It touches our heart. Your tears reach into each of us personally. There is nothing wrong of having doubts.

    Over the course of my own life, I have seen loss over and over. I chose not to let it defeat my heart and soul. I have been with others who have have suffered tragic losses. It can crush a person. But I was there with them and help them through all those tears.

    As I grew, one of my dads own brothers, who also served in WW2 took his life. Uncle Jimmy came to our house every week with Aunt Charlotte, and played cards with my parents. I use to love listening to them. It was a wonderful time. There were no easy answers to us all, missing him.

    My other two uncles, who took me fishing many summers, had passed away peacefully in a chair. No longer sharing my life with the both of them fishing for trout or stripers was sadly missed.

    My grandmother developed Alzheimer's. I found it difficult to cope with her no longer remembering me as I stood in front of her. She lived with it for years until she passed on.

    One of the toughest losses I faced was knowing my wife was going to pass on. It was as if I was on a pirate ship. I had to walk the plank. I knew that when I reached the end, it would all be over. You try everything to stop your walk, but in the end you are faced to accept it, and walk forward.

    As we lit the candle that night in hospice for Nadine, she was accepting her coming death. We were all crushed. No words were spoken for a very long time. It is a special moment I will never ever forget.

    I wanted you to realize that as I wrote these past events in my life, they are out of order. Our memories as we think back also unfold similarly, a bit here a bit there. But as we finally reveal it all, life can seem so much clearer.

    A Korean Army units was right next to our location. We could watch them train, and even shared some beer with them. For some reason they seemed to like drinking warm beer.

    I kept the books for our NCO club, a Korean bartender worked along with me. He made Ramyun noodles a lot. I remembering enjoying them a lot.

    In addition to my regular work, I was the designated fire marshall for all the barracks. I had to keep all the extinguishers full. However, soldiers would be soldiers and use them as water pistols. I would then have to go to the off-post fire station and get them refilled.

    One of my additional designations was being a member of the Mudpacker platoon. I was geared with full combat gear, including winter wear, as Korean winters were brutal.

    I lived on the end room on the second floor of the NCO barracks near the outside door. In the winter it was so cold when I went to bed at night. I wore flannel winter long johns and slept in my sleeping bag under my covers.

    When I woke, I would open my small refrigerator, pour a glass of water and mix Tang with it. As I stirred it, it would crystalize into small ice shards. It was just something you learn to adapt to over time.

    Off and on we had alerts. If you were off post you had to make it back asap. Some of those alerts were long (I will leave it at that).

    One day another SSG and I were moving a 2,000 pond filing cabinet on a four wheel dolly across a road made of rocks of various sizes. As we were moving the safe my right knee locked up, like you would put a pencil in a door to prevent it from closing.

    So we finished moving the cabinet and I signed out of the company and reported to the infirmary. The medical people did their best to determine what it was, but eventually said I need to go the Army Medical Center in Seoul.

    So I informed TOP (First Sergeant), resigned back out, headed to Pyeongtaek, and caught a bus to Seoul. It was about a fast two and half hour ride. Along the way you pick up Korean children heading to school, and many other Koreans.

    I eventually made it to the hospital and was admitted. They took an x-ray of my knee, and told me they found nothing wrong, as I was showing no visible injury on my knee. I had a 25 pound pulley system put around my ankle and it was left there for two days.

    After that didn't work they knew something was physically wrong. You see they thought it was all psychological.

    So they then opened my knee and noticed when they were inside I had a bone chip about the size of a half a dollar in my knee joint. So they moved it, and left it in, because the hole in my knee they went in with was not large enough to take the bone chip out.

    So I was sent back to my unit and told if it bothered me to report back. Two days later I was back, as the bone chip seemed to be moving and hitting nerves, the likes of which is indescribable.

    This time they went in with a larger hold and finally removed it. Two days later I was back on duty at my unit. I had other experiences in Korea that I won't mention. Let's just say I remember it all too well.

    When I left Korea, I headed back to Ft. George G. Meade. Over time my knee would bother me more, so I went to Kimbrough Army Hospital there. They took X-rays, noticed the hole in my supporting knee bone and then sent me to Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C.

    They operated on my knee and filled the missing bone area like a dentist would a filling. I was put on convalescent leave for 6 weeks. It was at this point that I decided, even though I only had 7 years and 5 months more till retirement, I was going to leave the service.

    Eventually that day came and I left my duty as a soldier with regret. Sure, I could have stayed, but both Nadine and I decided together it was time for a change.
