"Toyanne, I'm so sorry for your loss. My love passed away on May 29th of this year from lung cancer and he was given 6 to 8 months but he only lasted about 3. I have our 2 year old daughter that looks so much like him and I feel…"
"Toyanne, I know just how you feel -- only I was given 4 months instead of just a few days. We did not know anything was wrong at all before Feb. 24th, and he passed on June 24th. no hint of any problem, no shortness of breath or anything…"
"Toyanne, I'm so sorry to hear about your husband. I lost my wife last year to lung cancer, I know how hard it can be. I would like to say that it gets better but a year later I am still depressed all the time. I think I may…"
"I am so so so so sorry for your loss. That was so fast, my head is spinning just thinking about it. I can't imagine. I am so sorry. This is a terribly hard journey. I lost 2 parents to cancer in the past 7 months. My moms was…"
I've been a member for, oh, just a couple of days, but I've noticed a possible lack of focus on LGBT issues related to the loss of loved ones.I know what I had to go through - even with medical POA and a will - to gain legitimacy with the "powers that be" with regard to authorization for cremation, among other things.Just wondering if perhaps there are issues unique to the LGBT community that the other fine people on this site did NOT have to go through.I welcome your thoughts and…See More

I just lost my Love of my life husband to Lung Cancer yesterday. We found out last Saturday that he had lung cancer and they said that they didn't know what type of lung cancer it was and we had to wait on the test results which to be on Monday. When we got the results on Monday they said that he had 4 months to live and on Thursday the turned around and said that he had a couple of days to live and then yesterday afternoon he passed away. I'm having such a really hard time dealing and coping…See More

I am so sorry for your loss. It is understandable how sad it is when you don't get to say goodbye due to a loss so sudden.
To share my experience, my Mom passed like this. I also did not get to say a goodbye (e.g.…"
One of my friends (who hasn't contacted me for weeks) sent me a cutesy picture of a cat and a message which asked "how are you?". Cat picture aside, I am tired of this question, particularly when I feel the person asking it just wants to hear I am feeling better. As if that is possible for me five months after my husband's suicide. After I lost the love of my life, my joy and my happiness.I don't know how to answer the how are you question anymore, but I will be damned if I'm going to put on a…See More

I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my Mom on Valentines day 2017. I too dream about her, and when I wake up, it really hurts that she is not here. I had a different relationship with my Mom than you did. I was her caregiver and her…"
"Well said thank you for the advice. But guilt is the hardest thing to let go. I can't seem to shake it. I still think over and over I could've done more, should've done more. right now I'm actually going to hopefully get help…"

"Oh my gosh! I'm so sorry, Olive! I hate that you're having to get through this day alone. You should absolutely talk about your dad. You're a whole person, not split in half with two separate losses. I wish we could sit and share a…"
"Richard, I understand your feelings. If only we could have had more time with our loved ones. If only something had been different. It doesn't seem to matter if they died in front of us or in a horrible accident. Bottom…"
"Hi Nancy, I wish we could go out to eat tonight in honor of my mom, but my husband works nights and my dear dad passed on February 4 (I didn't know if I should mention that in here because the group is about moms). Your experience…"
"Hi, Olive. I am certain she feels your love! I am always praying and asking The Lord to tell my mom how much I love and miss her, and even to give her a hug and kiss from me. You can be sure he will pass everything on to your sweet mother. On my…"
First of all, I want to thank you for replying to my comments. I appreciate you sharing your experiences and how they parallel with mine. It does help me sort through what all I am grieving.
As the caregiver, a daughter, a sister and a…"

"I wish I could say it gets better, Elizabeth. You have gone through four years, and I have only gone through 16 months, so I can only think that my life will never hold any joy or happiness again. No, it is not health, but how can we make our…"
"Thanks for sharing, Bluebird. The poem, unfortunately, says it all! My life has no meaning. I did think love would last forever, and I never even contemplated a life without my husband. I many times think that the end of my life should not be so…"
"I can't help but think the same thing, that it's no coincidence. my only problem is that I'm still separated from Annette and it's just killing me inside. I still scream at night. The nightmares just keep coming and it's…"
"Hi Nancy, Theresa, and Bluebell,
Please know you are all in my prayers. Today would have been my sweet mom's 75th birthday, so it is a very hard day. I know she is rejoicing in heaven, but I can't help but be selfish and wish…"
