He died unexpectedly of a heart attack at work. I kissed him goodbye not realizing it would be the last time. Since then I had to put my dog down, and move in with my son and his family. It's not the best of circumstances, though I'm forever grateful. I'm pretty much flying solo as Jim and I were each others best friend....I was Blessed with 14 years...selfishly I want more. Knowing my reality is widowhood, I'm just trying to navigate this new journey of mine. I happened upon Soaring Spirits and thought it might be a good place to start.

I'm so sorry for your loss. My husband passed away suddenly in August. He was working out of state at the time. I was staying with my daughter at the time because she was due to have a baby so I was helping her out until she had the baby. I was blessed enough to be there with her when my other two grandchildren were born and I didn't want to miss the birth of my newest grandchild. 20 days after my husband passed my daughter told me to leave. It's to long of a story to go into right now. So I packed up all my belongings loaded up my car and left. I was numb driving around crying trying to figure out what to do where to go. Later that day I called my oldest son and told him what happened he told me to come stay with him. 77 days after moving in with him I woke up and found him dead in the shower he struggled with addiction. The pain and loss I felt at the time was so intense that I thought would be the worst I could ever feel it could not get any worse than this right? Well let me say it got way worse The things that were said and done to me after the death of my husband and my son Crushed me beyond words . Navigating thru it all is so so difficult. I am no longer the person I was before my husband died. I wish you the best trying to navigate your way thru it.
I am soooo very sorry for your losses and all you've endured in such a short amount of time. I know I'm not the same person I was before October 14. Funny, I thought I was just figuring me I'm starting completely over. ((((((Hugs)))))

goodness, I am so sorry for all the sorry you've had to face in the past half year!  Such a tremendous grief. I hope that time can bring healing of some of the jagged relationships!  I hope you find peace!
