Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Welcome Lisa,you simply could not be with a better crew of people!

Nigel, I too had a first marriage that "ended in tears" as my mother would say. When my daughter married her lovely husband she was given away by both my husbands and the father of the bride speech was made jointly by them. Her father had left when she was ten and Billy was ( and still is) a wonderful step father. After the wedding a few friends commented that if their ex's had gone to their children's wedding they would not!!They simply could not understand that both her dads were a huge part of her life. We all treasure the DVD of that wedding because three years later her father died of cancer. He had the chance to see his granddaughter who was born three weeks before he died.I cannot say in all honesty that on the day I felt love for the woman who took my place in my first husbands heart,but she too was at the wedding. It was a wonderful happy day and I know that the 2 fathers could not have been more proud of their beautiful daughter and I was very proud of them both.

much love to all,
Sailing on
