Missing you..

I talked to Jenni today--& she is good. We talked about how selfless you were in you were in your passing.. She was on the mainland like I thought. We spoke of the good days in Cozumel and she wants Austyn and I too come back and stay with her.. She was really heartbroken to hear. You would be proud, her English is amazing.

8 weeks....

After a 5 year battle with everything humanly possible, my husbands loss seemed shocking.  I saw someone on here whose husband also had passed and had an aortic aneurysm - that wasn't COD tho it certainly didn't help..   It's been almost 8 weeks today.  Doesn't sound that long does it?  It feels as if I haven't seen you in years.. I can remember every detail of those last days… EVERY detail. But I can't remember the day of the week or where my keys are.. I can remember our last argument.. About…See More

You're too young to be a widow

I never thought that I would be a widow in my forties.  My friends can't relate and feel the need to comment on everything, even if they have no experience with grief.  I know they mean well but only we know what we are going though.See More

Amy
I relate to your pain and feel for you. My wife Roxanne was ill with a variety of problems starting with breast cancer 15 years ago. She got through that but suffered much more over the years but always pulled through. Until a heart problem got her a month ago. Im lost. She was my world. Caring for her was my job. Now i have nothing. I wish i could see some light.
