Good bye for now :)

Due to so much happening in my life at the moment and its matters rather private, I will be leaving the forum with some sadness for a period. I would like to thank you all for being such a lovely and loving group and you have helped me so much with my problem, so till I get all this sorted look after yourselves and please remain positive and also KEEP SMILING.

Love :) Fred xxx

WIFE: "There's trouble with the car. It has water in the carburetor."

HUSBAND: "Water in the carburetor? That's ridiculous."

WIFE: "I tell you the car has water in the carburetor."

HUSBAND: "You don't even know what a carburetor is. I'll check it out. Where's the car?"

WIFE: "In the pool."

I don't know you at all Fred but as a result of your frequent contributions to this site I have come to admire you, and, when I see that you have posted a new comment etc. I feel like I have just received a letter from a very special friend, and I am smiling to myself before I even get to read your comment. You are so aware of yourself, your surroundings, your family and friends, and always so positive. I'm sure you have very good reasons for leaving us but hopefully it won't be too long before you are back sending 'letters to friends like me'. My very best wishes go with you Fred.
