"Thanks for sharing your story, Trisha. When I was having chemo treatments, the chaplain at the clinic was a great source of comfort to me. One day when I was really emotional I told her that I didn't think I'd ever find someone again,…"
"Since a few of us have an unsettled "vibe" about the recent changes in Neil's life, here's my suggestion about how to help him if things for some reason do not go well and he needs some healing love:

I am currently working on a cross stitch of Neil. I uploaded a photo to myphotostitch.com and it creates a pattern, then I printed it. I did his face first and it does look like him, but on his shirt, when it saw red and white it made it orange and when it saw a touch of black it made it brown, and when it was black and white it made it gray. So I am following the picture more than the pattern. I am using metallic threads and will be outlineing in black. I am also writing my life story for my children and I watch my daughter''s 3 year old daughter 2 days a week, which keeps me very busy. I was out most of today with my son and his family, we went to a movie, then lunch and some shopping. I love being near my family. I lived in Hawaii for 12 years and really missed seeing them.
Did the hurricane cause any damage around you? Alyce is on Long Island in New York and posted pictures of the damage in her neighborhood.
Hi Ann, Just listened to your songs, very nice! I liked the words on the Neil Diamond Melody, had a few laughs on that one. Stones is one of my favorites. And your Million Pink Ribbons could be a theme song for the cause. I bought a guitar with the intent of leaning to play it, but have been busy with other projects. I used to play the violin is school but that was a looooog time ago, as I am the same age as Neil, well actually he is 4 months older that me.
Dorothy scanned in some articles on Neil, but they were too small to read. One looked like it was from the Daily Mail supplement, and was about Neil and Rae, and referred to her being partially deaf. Maggie M said she would send me the link to the article, and she left me the message below:
Hey Trisha, Ann has the answer for you. This is where I read the article--I couldn't remember. You don't have to be a member to read these articles, but you do if you want to see the videos.
I dont quite understand this message, what do I have to be a member of? and do you know where this article is located?
Hello Ann Hello, just listened to your 2 songs - very nice Kudos to you for being able to sing and play guitar, let alone doing your own renditions of Neil's songs..
Very pretty indeed, thank you so much for sharing with all of us.....Now, you can't stop there you have many other song's to redo in your own style--not putting pressure on you to come up with more ASAP ---just in your own time. Must be wonderful to be able to entertain yourself----Best wishes with any future endeavors -- sending Neil Love.......Alyce V
