    I might add a fine man whose company I enjoyed for a brief year, but will always remember. A Kindred Spirit!

    I certainly wish Ivan and Monica (my cousin by marriage) lived in Ohio, so I could enjoy some of Ivan’s stories. I used to listen to him when he talked about things like this at reunions but I have never been to the out of state reunions. I miss both of them!

    Ivan, reading your blog makes me smile- different stories, different situations, but the same journey of grief. So much of what you write resonates in my own spirit- I feel the same sluggishness, and while I know it will pass, I both loathe it and embrace it. The tears are both friend and foe. It’s great to have you close by during this leg of the race. Blessings to you as Christmas nears. Keep writing- you have “the gift” (pun intended).

      I am glad to bring a smile to you, Vicki; you have brought many to me, my friend. Yes. The “journey” of grief. Thanks for sharing the pathway with me. I know you are walking it, too.
      And thanks for your “gift” allusion; you are so funny! Ha! An inside joke, huh.

    It’s been a while since we’ve enjoyed singing together, Ivan, but after reading just a few of your entries, I see that our lives have been parallel. . . . Grace and Peace,
    Michael

    Ivan, thanks for sharing this beautiful website with me. I especially like the Inaugaration story and how each new day is ours to do with as we please.

    THIS WAS AN INTERESTING ARTICLE ON SENIOR CLASS! OUR PHS CLASS OF 1970 IS LOOKING FOR MONICA!!! WE ARE HAVING A 45TH REUNION ON JULY 11, 2015, AT THE AMERICAN LEGION ON COURT ST IN PORTSMOUTH. CONTACT ME AT FOR MORE DETAILS IF YOU CAN MAKE IT! IT WOULD BE SO WONDERFUL TO SEE MONNIE AGAIN!!! DEBBIE

    • ivanbenson says:

      Thank you, Debbie. I will tell her. I think someone has already contacted her about this.

      • DEBBIE AEH HARNESS says:

        Thank you, Ivan. I was disappointed to find out today you won’t be coming but am hoping you will reconsider! Our class has lost many members so the 45 just seemed like a great idea..

    Ivan, you write very, very well. You have a skill that not many possess. The Making of a Widow is superb. I am sorry you had to experience such a crushing heart attack in order to be able to write it, but we are all the richer for it. Best wishes in your recovery and to your family. Sharon and I miss our Atlanta visits with you. Blessings, Ron Nickle

    • ivanbenson says:

      Ron, such a pleasure to see your comments. I am glad my thoughts are beneficial; that is my intent, of course. Thanks for taking time to read and comment. I know you have a wealth of “heart” experience yourself, so that makes it especially meaningful. My best to you and Sharon.
