Judy, that probably is a good suggestion for people who live where there is that choice.  But all crematories around here are either owned by or connected to specific funeral homes.  And I think they must be the greediest people on earth. >:( I  finally made an offer, saying, take it or not.  If not, we will have another funeral home come pick him up.  After conferring with the owner, my offer was accepted.  Still a big rip-off, in my opinion, but we're under pressure here.

John's sister has been wonderful about helping me.  She found John's Social Security number in some of their mother's papers, wrote the obituary, and is offering to pay for the cleanup of his apartment. Problem is, everything has to be gone through so carefully. We have been going through his mountain of unopened mail, old newspapers, junk mail, etc. and I found cards with cash inside, one with a $50 check.....oh, what a job.  :'(   We are taking today off, as had to have a break.  I want to go paint, but I'm just so tired.

Thanks for all the kind words, and for praying for us.  We need it!

A prayer for the world

God of love and hope,
you made the world and care for all creation,
but the world feels strange right now.
The news is full of stories about Coronavirus.
Some people are worried that they might get ill.
Others are anxious for their family and friends.
Be with them and help them to find peace.
We pray for the doctors and nurses and scientists,
and all who are working to discover the right medicines
to help those who are ill.
Thank you that even in these anxious times,
you are with us.
Help us to put our trust in you and keep us safe.

~Amen.

Greetings Everyone  Last week in the UK and on the Island here, people were asked to go out at 8.00pm to clap and show support for the splendid National Health Service (NHS).  I went out and hubby bravely made it out in his wheelchair.  Many of our neighbours were out clapping and the UK saw a splendid turnout of people.  It gladdens the heart to see the community spirit.  Tonight there is a clap for carers and I intend to be out there clapping and hubby has asked if I will  get him ready to go out. As he wants to clap for me as well.  Ellie

... we on our parkhome are doing this tonight at 8.pm...told this is for our NHS...I will do my best to stand outside my front door on the high up concrete step...We must not forget our Royal Mail postal deliveries and our courier services that deliver to our homes...Nor anyone else who are keeping our countries going, when everything else seems to have stopped..

Greetings Jackie  It could be for the NHS and Carers.  I will organise myself at 7.30pm to be outside for 8.00pm, I need that time to get hubby dressed and into his wheelchair.  He is a foot taller than me; it would be easier if we were the same height!  Without a doubt you have a splendid idea about all those who make life easier for us.  And we must include the politicians who do not have an easy job.  Take care when you are on the concrete steps.

... no need to go through all that trouble getting ready half hour before, just go to your doorstep for that minute or two of clapping altogether...I believe this is happening all around our UK at 8.pm, not sure it will be every night or just once a week on a Thursday only..Link...

Greetings Jackie  There was a splendid turnout of people clapping at 8.00pm last evening and one lady played the Manx National Anthem.  A lovely touch we thought.  Hubby would not have it any other way, to be dressed when outside the home. Although I am retired from my profession, getting him dressed is party of his therapy.  Ellie

I did light one candle. 

I choose to look for the wonderful acts of goodness we hear/see each and every day.  Grieving  for the multitude of lost lives those who live on without their friends/family. 

Janet:  Good news that one of John's relatives will be of some help.  Hang in there!

We have another snowfall - it began last night and stopped this morning.  The driveway was so slippery when taking trash out for pickup but I made it in time.   

Rebot

Greetings Carol    Listening to the local station here on the Island, you hear of the good deeds people are doing to help others with the Covid-19 outbreak.   Like the man on low wages who got a rebate on his tax in the hundreds of pounds and gave it to charity.  Where we live a sports team are delivering bread and milk to those over seventy.  And many more stories as well.   Ellie

Janet

I came in and read yesterday, but was busy trying to trace down things concerning John.  How glad I am that I got him to go to bank lawyer with me and sign Powers of Attorney over to me, for both health care decisions (but no way was he going to a doctor nor a hospital) and he signed the other to Transfer on Death to me, everything he owned.  It isn't much, mainly his little Kia car, which he had just made the final payment on in February.  He has quite a collection of baseballs, signed by Yankees players, along with each player's card.  They are just thrown into boxes, so some of the glass boxes are broken, and they are in disarray.  I have no idea of their value, but his sister told me to watch for "his baseball card collection" that he's been accumulating since he was a kid. This is what we found, so I'm assuming that's what she meant.

We are finally ready for the guys to come haul off the rest and clean the place.  This is, by far, the hardest job I've ever had to do.  It breaks my heart knowing John was suffering so much the last few weeks of his life and still refusing any help we offered.  It truly didn't have to be this way, but it is, and it cannot be changed.

Nice that you folks in the UK are applauding the people working valiantly against this plague.  It is changing life for everyone in the world.

My back is aching, and I need to rest a bit.  Love to each of you here, and "Stay Home==Stay Safe!"

We are hearing of the good deeds people are doing here in UK

Carol..
.. you are so right, i have never known so many good acts of kindness, so many are pulling together, yes goodness can always come out of a tragedy even if we cant see that at the time, nor even imagine a new future that will be awaiting for whoever survives this outbreak, because our lives, will never ever be the same again.....Our whole world is living one big nightmare...

Janet....
... yes so many are placing their own lives at risk...and yet they still soldier on...

Greetings Janet I watched a news item about cabin crew from a leading UK airline making tea and coffee and handing out cakes to Nurses and Doctors after their Hospital shifts.  Though the cabin crew were stood down with airlines grounded, it shows the goodness in people.  And I must praise the food banks who look after people low on foodstuffs.  Ellie
