October 31 into November 1, 2012. The love of my life ended his nearly two year battle with brain cancer when his poor, battered body finally succumbed. I will miss him the rest of my life.

Hi Suz. So nice to hear from you, especially today when I need all the friends I can get! I know it is PTSD; I wish more was written about it for all of us experiencing it. So glad to hear you are feeling more like yourself. Gives us all HOPE that we can make it too. Thank you for your kind words, dear friend. We will survive!
Hugs and peace to you, Jocelyn, The pain of those last days are often so traumatic. I know we have talked of this before when I was being more active and it really is unrecognized for what it is...a form of real PTSD. I hope those memories get softer and you find yourself feeling better. The second year feels different and it hard in a "get back to life way" but know that no one here will ever expect you to feel a "certain way" at anytime, as it all goes up and down and all around. It does get better, though. I realize I am closing in on the second year in Feb. and I have been feeling more my "old" self (still the loss will always be there). You have given so much here. I know it will all be there for you. Much peace...
To all of my WV friends. Thank you so much for your kind thoughts and prayers. It really has helped this day not be as awful as I thought it might be. It has been hard to remember how he suffered, especially the last week of his life. It took me a long time after he died to stop seeing that. I will have to push that to the back of my mind again and bring the happy memories forward again. The kids and I spent a quiet afternoon together, remembering their dad. Nothing formal or fancy, and he would have liked that. He was a quiet man except with us at home and he could get wild and crazy with his siblings. Brings a smile to my face to remember that. Received some phone calls, several cards, lots of emails and text messages. People who are really close to us remembered his angelversary. So tomorrow, I guess I can't say "this time last year" anymore because he will have been gone a year. I'm going to try to focus on our recovery and healing going forward now. Thank you again for the love and support. I think of all of you as well. Peace to us all....
Jocelyn: Sending you hugs today on your hubby's angelversary.
so sorry... my husband had similar issues... (((((hugs))))) you are in my thoughts.. it was a war wasn't it...
Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers, Joycelyn.
Thank you JoAnna.
I will miss my beloved Pete the rest of my life too! My one year anniversary of his sudden death will be in three months and I am not looking forward to the day at this point. I am comforted knowing that I can hold on to the wonderful times we had together and the love that we had for each other. I am sending you a big hug right now! Jo Anna
I am drowning in sadness and grief, just like in the beginning. It seems harder now because I know he is never coming back...
