That's a lovely story about the pigeon/dove. I do think with the ducks it could have been my Dad and son watching over us as a family.
My Mum is being very strong she has us (my sister and brother) that live close by to support her. I know that its a different story behind closed doors but we all try to make sure that she is busy.
I hope that my Dad tries to send her an adc to let her know he is doing ok. They were married for 53 years and its their anniversary in a couple of weeks. I do hope he does - they say love never dies I truly believe that.
Hope you are having a good day. Has your beloved husband sent you anymore adcs lately?
