      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

Dear Suenic,

I am very sorry to hear about all the losses suffered by your partner. It is extremely difficult but just being there by his side and your willingness to listen will be mean a lot. Please know everyone grieves differently and there is no right way or wrong way. If he is looking for additional supports, maybe suggest grief counselling or joining a support group. Or if is he more private he might want to check out some of these websites. They offer a lot of understanding and compassion for those going through grief.

Please keep letting him know you care and love him and will listen at anytime.

Thinking of you both.
