Thank you Diane! You ar right reality had hit me hard I'm hoping as the days go on they get a little easier..

Going out today with two other widows whose birthdays are also in June.  I find some comfort in sharing with others in a similar situation to my own.  In a way we support each others emotional needs around such special events.  I am blessed in some of the friendships I have regained since Ray died.

June 23rd marks one year since 'the day'.  I lost my 55 year old husband of 27 years.  I have been back and forth with how to handle it.  Do I do something?  Do I ignore it?  I asked my grown children and they wanted to ignore it.  I kind of do too.  The way I see it is every day is sad so this one will be the same.  The anticipation of such a day I feel is worse than the day itself.  I just want to remember him and his humor and not the terrible day itself.  Having said that is there anything you do to remember your loved one?

My wife's birthday is Also Fathers Day this year - she has been gone six months now. The pain is still enormous.

Hugs to you, Mike
