Maura Simms replied to Halie Smith's discussion Lost the love of my life in the group Traumatic, Sudden Loss
"Well, that's what we all say, why him/her, why not me?  Why are we left here to suffer more than the brief experience of death that they had; they are the lucky ones.  I asked God the same thing; ya got these spirits over here and…"

Profile Information

About my Loss:
My loving hardworking husband of only 8 years died suddenly of the vicious disease, liver cancer. He worked very hard for us to have a good retirement and now our dream is gone; he'll never got to experience all the things he worked so hard to enjoy. There were no symptoms until it was too late and I hospiced him at home. The shock, the stress and the speed it took was unbelievable.

6/12/2012. Now my father passed away, the guy that told me to drive 900 miles to see him so he could give me a hug when my husband passed. I just have my dog now, its weird, but a loving warm breathing creature can bring alot of comfort.
