"It was when they sang "Stand By Me" that I turned it off.  I never heard that song presented in that way and suddenly the words had profound meaning.  Then I started thinking how much my wife would have loved watching the wedding…"

"Today was the Kentucky Derby and my wife loved it.  On no other day was she interested in horse racing but on this Saturday, she would sit for hours and watch the story of the horses and be entranced.  Lord, such a silly thing for such an…"

"Thanks, M Adams.  When half the team is gone, it's devastating.  When half of who you are is gone, there seems to be no way to deal with it.  "

"There are times when it's just overwhelming and the pain is intense.  Today, for no reason at all, I keep muttering "how could you just die?"  If there had been a choice, I know she wouldn't have left me on my…"

"All the family went different directions tonight and left me to hand out candy to the kids.  Unfortunately, they have a huge liquor cabinet.  Year three and even Halloween pulls the rug out from under my feet."

About my Loss:
Wife died September, 2014, suddenly and unexpectedly, at age 52. We both were licensed child and family therapists and had a practice for 25 years together. The world fell apart that day and the last two years have been the most difficult time in my life. Although I have been around death a great deal through hospice work and losing my mother and father, I could never imagine anything like this. It's simply beyond description.

Three days ago, my mom died.  She was alone when she died -- or, at least, she had no family member present. I'd been to the hospice the morning before, and she'd told me, "I'm going to die soon."  All I could do was cry, and tell her I was going to miss her.  She told me to stop. I decided to take my leave from work as soon as I could, told her I was going into work to do that.  And I did.  But she did not wait for me.  She died the next morning, and I did not make it there in time.My mother…See More
