Tank you for your truly understood words. It is the words of those who have experienced the sudden loss of a truly beloved spouse that resonate with me. I am in the darkness you write about, and the pain is agonizing.

Friends, my daughter's first bday celebration went great. She is now 1 year old and motivating force for my dad to live. My dad is able to laugh and enjoy life because of his grand daughter. Even I feel motivated to live so that I…"
