Sunday

I may make one or two posts before I head off early on Tuesday.

Although my alerts are off, I was checking a few journals on Technorati, and found that Kathy [onestrangecat] lost her mom yesterday, May 3rd. I know what she is going through, please call round. I'm very sad for her, and worried.

I am deeply moved by the tributes to myself on various journals, as well as the 100-odd comments on previous posts, as well as on Call for Support.

I shall be very sad to leave the Isle of Lewis which has been my home for the past 3½ years. You can access some of the work I've been doing from my website, www.adb422006.com.

    Bless you Guido for supporting others even in your own grief. You deserve every tribute written about you, you've been a wonderful friend to so many people including myself. I'm very sad to see you have to leave Stornoway, I hope one day you mnay return. Have a safe trip home, with all my prayers and good wishes  to you and your family.

  7. when I read, 'head off' I cried.. I'm happy you are getting to go Guido...  and so sad for the reason.  I know you hold things close to vest and I respect that... I just hope things work out and the reason for leaving the Isle of Lewis and not going back is something that can be worked out.  My thoughts are with you
    hugs

    I am very sorry to hear about your mother.

    Let me know if there is anything Vish and I can do to help you out.
    Yes the journals team is also there for you, along with all our JLand family.

    It's good to see a post from you.  I hope you have safe flight(s) home.  Mrs. B is going to miss you, isn't she?  I hope you will be able to get back at some point.  Take care, and I hope we hear from you soon.

    Very sad about Kathy's mom.  Am just now getting 'round to leave a message for her.

  16. I'm so very sorry for your loss. You do so much for us...don't stay gone too long, that we can't support you in return.

    All my love,

    Andi
