Married for 39 years. 2 grown children. Live in Fort Lauderdale area for past 20 years.
About my Loss:
My wife wasn't feeling good on July 9th of 2014. I took her into the emergency room and they admitted her. On July 13th we received the diagnosis of stage 4 cancer. Multiple tumors in the gall bladder, bile ducts, and liver. She died October 30th. I thought the grief I was experiencing was normal. Now I'm starting to wonder. I left my job (im 62) teaching high school math this year as she needed full time care. The friends I had in this life were my work associates at school and outside of school it was my wife. We were best of friends and did everything together. I am at a total loss.
