Last night was tough....very tough. 2 years ago, I thought he was going to die then. It was an emotional month while he was in ICU and step down. But, it was the same date (5 months ago) that he went to his peace and I went here. Today was not good either...especially when my mom realized what yesterday was and facebook showed a memory of him last year...almost healthy. Some one said that the dates are hard, but it gets more routine.
There are times that I wonder if I was too…Continue

Tomorrow is that day....that horrible day when everything started to go to crap. When he quit cooking for our riders, he went on a memorial run for a friend of ours that got in an accident the year before....the day that he got into his accident....and died in the ambulance.....I saw the chopper set down, and an acquaintance of mine ran out as the paramedic...and I yelled at him..."That's my hunny in there! PLEASE take care of him!"....That was 2 years ago. Yes, I got him for an extra…Continue

It's been one month that I lost my soulmate on Valentine's Day.
This has been surreal, because it's like he just disappeared. Living without him is becoming unbearable.
My love, I'm trying and I want to be strong, but I miss you so much.
Remembering back to the day she died is like a brilliant flash of light. Barb died of a massive heart attack brought on by complications from Type 2 diabetes. To me, diabetes is a very …Continue

Maybe I'm strange. I enjoy my memories. Granted, it's tough and time is making it a little easier, but I think that it is only because I am learning how to "behave" when I remember. I felt extremely lucky to have my hunny for the extra year and a half that I got. He died in the ambulance at his accident and if his C1 had chipped 1 mm the other way, he would've died or been paralyzed. Even though that year and a half was hard--I was caregiver for 5 months while he grew in strength and…Continue

It's been a month since my partner passed away. I found that talking to people helped me. Today, my Airbnb host gave me an insight that I haven't thought about before we had this conversation. He said that everyone eventually passes away. That is the natural course of life. It is the untimely death of the person that makes it harder to accept this reality. My partner was 40 years old when he passed away. I had many plans before he had cancer. In my mind, we will grow old together. In my…Continue

My Mommy died on Saturday, February 25, 2017 at 2:30 P.M. It was the most devastating day of my entire life. I knew her death was certain because she'd had two strokes on both sides of her brain a year apart. It was expected, but never real until the moment it happened. I was asleep when she died. I woke up the minute to the hour she passed on. The movie While You Were Sleeping was my favorite movie of all time, so it is ironic really.
Around midnight I went out on the porch.…Continue
