Thanks so much, Lisa! That means a lot to me.

We did have such a wonderful time visiting you!

It's OK to be pissed at him--I am. In fact, if he wasn't dead, I would have to smack him.

I don't feel very strong, in fact, just the opposite.

Thanks, Lisa!


I am truly sorry. Kat


We had a conversation about this last night. My daughter and I are survivors of suicide. My ex-husband committed suicide on Sept 4, 1995 and it STILL affects everything I do. He was a good man, good father and after our divorce a good friend. I went to high school with him, graduated with him, dated him, married him and divorced him, and buried him all in a period of 25 years. I still miss the guy--he was a great guy BUT he didn't think for one minute what he was doing to Jenn and me when he took his own life. After a few years I began to realize that there was absolutely NOTHING I did to cause this and NOTHING I could to do prevent it. I hope Ronni will be fine and her son will heal also. I will keep both of them in my prayers and would like to be kept abreast of their healing progress. It takes a long time so I hope Ronni will be patient--it gets bad before it gets better and then it improves. I am sure that Ronni and her son will heal--they are in my prayers!!!!!!
It's O.K. for Ronni to feel lost, scared and zapped of strength and she will for a while and she should allow herself to FEEL everything. Not to block it out. She is in my prayers.


Beth, you sound very wise, and I'm sorry to hear of your experience. It's one of those things that's unfortunately more common than many people realize.

I think offering your experience is a very caring thing for you to do.


Hey Lisa,
That's terrible news! I feel so bad for Ronni, I met them at your party and they seemed so nice. I hope she stays strong through all of this. Take care!


OMG! Ronni, First my thoughts, prayers, and open arms are out there for you. Lisa, Martin, I extend the same to you with an addition, I thank you for including us at your B-day party so to been able to meet Ronni and Jim. Thank you.


Thank you all. It really does help.

    A collection of lyrical short stories from Annie Proulx that contains Brokeback Mountain among other gems. (****)
  • John Grisham: The Innocent Man
    I can only quote from the jacket blurb: "If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." A must read. (*****)

    Fascinating look at women journalists at the front during WWII. (****)
  • Jack Olsen: Charmer
    Riveting true crime by a master. (****)

    Excellent telling of the Bart Corbin cases. (****)
  • Michael Crichton: Airframe
    Ehhh. Better than the back of a cereal box, I guess. (**)
