Loved One ~ Alphabet Crazy

Just sharing a quote about how when I post about Dustin, or other family I have lost, it is not to get sympathy. It is to keep their memory alive.

When you lose someone all you have left are memories. When others stop talking about them, you feel sometimes that you are losing them completely. 

As long as you can hear others speak their name, and talk about them in any way, or even writing about them, as some will do on this site, you are keeping their memory alive.

Of course Dustin, and other family members will always be in my heart. It helps to share moments and for others to talk about them. I never want them to be forgotten.

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.

      • Drats, I did it again. I always say Dustin instead of Justin and visa versa. My son has a friend that is Justin. I practically raised him, and I still call him Dustin. I told him I was just going to change his name.
        And yes, true. We do have our own way of coping. Personally my family does not like the way I handle grief. When my dad passed, I closed the resort, shut off the phone and went camping for two weeks. They sure did get mad at me. It was my way though, dad and I loved the outdoors, and that was our time. No one should tell anyone how they should handle this. I just wanted to say, I like your way, it’s how I got to know you.

  1. Everyone has its own way how to deal with memories of loved ones who are no longer with us. I think everyone understands it and respects it. Even if someone dies, it does not mean that memories should be full of sadness and pain of loss. It can still bring light to our lives. Because they are alive inside us, and there is a heart full of love to them.
