"Hi Phil - Thank you for sharing about your lovely wife, Chiko. It's evident what a kind and special person she was. I've heard that orchids are challenging to grow so she must have had a very gentle and talented touch. Your story about…"

"It's been over two and a half years since my dear brother, Dan, passed away. The best "advice" I've received from someone who has also known great grief - "It doesn't get better. It just gets different."
Thank you for sharing. Again, I'm so very sorry. I cannot fathom what that must feel like to be with your soulmate so long and now be without them. I'm here if you ever want to share about your wife - what did she like to do?…"

Thank you for giving me the chance to talk about my wife, Chikako (Chiko for short). She was Japanese and were were married way back when I was stationed in Japan. It really was love at first sight. She was so cute. She was only 4'11" and weighed about 110 lbs. back then in her 20's. By the time she passed away she was only 4'6" and 85 lbs. She suffered a lot starting in her 50's from arthritis and eventually the drugs she took to fight the pain finally destroyed her heart. She was a fantastic cook and the best gardener. She loved to raise orchids and everyone came to her with their sick plants. She was such a quiet and peaceful person who did not say a lot (unlike me) but when she spoke everyone listened because she was so wise. I could go on and on about what a wonderful person she was. I was not always the best husband, but she forgave me every time. I will not let her memory die. I talk about her constantly to my son and his wife and my grandchildren. They all loved her very much too. I sure hope there is an afterlife and that we join our loved ones again. It is all I have to look forward to. Thank you again for your support. Phil
Thank you for welcoming me to the site. I'm desperately trying to deal with my grief at the loss of my wife. She was my constant companion and I had expected that I would go first, but the universe had a different plan I guess. I am old and she was just a year younger, so we knew our time was limited, but suddenly I find that I cannot fathom life without her. I don't seem to have a purpose, even though it has been over a year now since she passed away. The pain does seem to be lessening, and listening to other people's stories helps. Thanks again for welcoming me.
Here is the story of my son, Matthew-He was an easy baby, full of smiles and laughter but a rather shy little boy. He was so gentle natured. He grew up to be a wonderful person.

He went to Community College, worked at PISD as a mentor and also worked part time at Tom Thumb.When he turned 21, his life changed forever. He had been experiencing issues with drooling, tiredness, kept…See More
