Shortly after my husband, Ted, passed away in August, I said down and penned an article, but after reading it over, I decided against sending it to my editors. I felt that readers might misconstrue what I had written or, more importantly, what I was feeling deep in my heart. I asked the questions, “Why are you so silent? Don’t you know I need you more than ever? Where are you? Were you really never our friends? Don’t you care at all?” I was hurting and I did not know how to express myself or really what to expect from those I loved.

Weeks ago in this column, I reviewed several Android and iPhone apps that can be used to possibly locate lost or stolen phones and tablets.

Easter is a time when Christians all over the world think of the Lord Jesus Christ, His life, His ministry, and of the crucifixion on the cross. I realize that I write for people of many faiths and that we all perhaps do not believe the same, I cannot help but think of Easter and spring and new birth and the joys of living at this time of the year. I ask that our readers bear with me as I look at the death, burial and resurrection as I have been taught down through the years and as I believe in my heart.
