Linda, thank you for the kind words.  I think this Celebration of Life is bringing everything to the surface again.  I hurt and ache so bad.  I know I must go on, but this is so painful.  I have to work and focus and all I want to do is cry.  I keep dreaming this isn't real.  Jack has a son and daughter, they had a horrible relationship with their biological mother.  Jack's daughter is now my daughter on paper as well.  She adopted me 2 years ago a beautiful present.  It is causing issues between my stepson and his daughter.  My granddaughter this is such a mess.  I know she needs me, and due to my beliefs I too will wait my time until it is my turn to pass.  It will be 3 months as of August 2, 2017; 14 days later we were supposed to celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary.  Instead I need to write my thoughts for his Celebration of Life, put a slide show and music together and get everything done at work for payroll and corporate taxes.

Oh I wish I could go back to before my husband had cancer.  It was already at stage 4 when they finally discovered it. Cancer is so ugly. The big "C" word. The diagnosis was given to us on 1/23/2017 and 05/02/2017 he was gone.  I want him back. He was the sweetest person we loved each other so much. I still love him and want to be with him.  I have the flash backs of his final day.  His beautiful blue eyes looked into mine and he then closed them to take a nap.  Our daughter and I walked outside onto the front porch for less than 5 mins; came back in and he was gone.

Repost: Is It Wrong to Grieve?

Is It Wrong to Grieve?Have you ever had a brief bout with illness? Perhaps you recovered so quickly that you have practically forgotten the episode. Well, grief is not like that. “There is no such thing as ‘getting over’ grief,” writes Dr. Alan Wolfelt in his book Healing a Spouse’s Grieving Heart. However, he adds: “Over time and with the support of others, your grief will soften.”As an example, consider how the patriarch Abraham reacted when his wife died. The Bible says that “Abraham began…See More

They don't understand.

How do you deal with well meaning family/friends who just don't understand what you're going through? 2 of my sisters-in-law still have their husbands.  One does not have a good marriage, she talks about her husband dying flippantly she says things like "I know if _____ died I would use the insurance money to go on that vacation he never wants to go on."  Then in the next breath "Are you still going on your cruise next year?  I could take (my husband's) place if you want so you're not alone."…See More
