  •  Well, the first one was a Wanna-be TGR (6+ / 0-)

    Diary, but I was still wrestling with access to DKos at that point. I had a lot to learn about DK yet, then (not that I still don't, but I have at least learned a few things, so far).

    I always appreciate your thoughtful and caring comments, and I especially appreciate that you were willing to go that "extra mile" and read outside DK to understand more of the background of my husband's (and my) story. I have, and reach out to, friends in lots of places and I'm happy and feel truly blessed that there are so many who have expressed their caring in this most trying time of my life. Isolation is a killer, and I am no stranger to depression, so I know that reaching out is critical.

    Thank you again, dear friend Mark.

    •  Yes, I enjoy doing a little research, (3+ / 0-)

      especially since most folks don't bother,
      so it makes me feel truly smart,
      when I do just a little more research
      than others who don't.

      I see you dug up my real name.

      It's not in my profile,
      but I've mentioned it a few times,
      here and there.

      Speaking of names,
      after reading this,
      from the facebook page:

       
      February 26, 1949 - June 7, 2012
      Married to Kathryn Peterson, anniversary    July 29, 2008
      - (Brief obituary by Lyrl Peterson Ahern)
      "Andrew David Peterson, 63, of Portland OR. Survived by his wife, Kathryn “Kit” Peterson, stepsons Shaun McLaughlin of Beaverton, OR and Brendan McLaughlin of Tampa, FL;  
      I think I see what you did,
      to devise your username here at Daily Kos:

      "Kit"
      is your nickname,
      short for Kathryn;
      "R"
      might be the first letter of your maiden name;
      "M"
      is the first letter in McLaughlin,
      your first married name;
      "P"
      is,
      of course,
      for Peterson,
      Andy's last name,
      and your current last name.

      My father's mother outlived three husbands,
      so,
      by the time she died,
      she was
      Ada Frances Kelley Herbert Gump Tipton.

      I'm glad you understand the need to reach out to others.

      When Pam died,
      I started learning to use the phone,
      as a lifeline.

       Isolation is a killer, and I am no stranger to depression, so I know that reaching out is critical.  
      Yes,
      do keep that in mind.

      Bringing a child into the world at this point in history is a crime, the crime of child endangerment.
