My husband's birthday is March 27th. He passed away October 30th, and now that March is here, it seems like the month is looming large. I asked my son last month about what we should do for the birthday, and he said go to McDonald's. Then the other day, my dad was showing me a giant box of yellow cake mix he had gotten. I told him that was Shane's favorite kind of cake, yellow cake with chocolate frosting, and that we should make one sometime this month in honor of his birthday. Not sure how to plan for the emotions. I imagine the anticipation may be worse than the day itself.


My husband's birthday is coming up on March 8th. It will be his 60th, however, to me he will always be 53.
He really enjoyed his birthdays and we always celebrated. Since he has passed, on his birthday I go to dinner with his sister and my sister to acknowledge the day, reminisce and offer up a toast to the great guy that we all lost and miss.
We each had one sister and neither of them had married so the four of us were very close and lived nearby each other. We often traveled together, celebrated holidays together and enjoyed each other's company. He would often joke that he had three wives particularly when we were trying to convince him to do something he didn't want to do. LOL
He passed in 2010 from pancreatic cancer just one month following his diagnosis. When his doctors first suggested hospice treatment, he told them no because "his girls" would take care of him...and we did.
I still miss him terribly but I am grateful for the wonderful life we shared, the memories we made together and that my Faith assures me we will meet again one day. Happy 60th Birthday Danny❤️

My birthday is March 23rd. He always liked to make me feel special on my special day, and this is my first birthday without him. I don't know what to do with myself. :(

aww, (((hugs))). I know how you feel. It is tough to have a "special day" when the one who made you feel special is no longer here. I had a miserable 60th last year and did not tell anyone on that day.

Frank's birthday is 3/19. He did not quite make it to 75. Would have been 77 this year.

March 7th would of been our 25th wedding anniversary and the 24th is the one year anniversary of Mike's accident. Has it been a year already it seems so long ago at times and sometimes it feels like yesterday. He has missed so much he may not be visiting me but I know by the doughnut shaped birth mark on the top of our 2 month old grandson's head that he is watching us all

My wedding anniversary is March 22nd, We would have been married 6 years. My husband Said, passed on February 17th, 2017. I know it will be a hard day on the 22nd, but his Birthday was on February 25th, he would have been 38. My parents and I went to one of Said's fav restaurants and I thought I would be very emotional but instead it felt good. I felt like I was doing something to honor my husband. 

I hate March! My husband died March 31,2013. I am having a hard time this year in the lead up to the 31st. I love you my beloved, Otis! Love Always, Nanci

Almost a year ago on March 28 my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. March 29 we discovered it had metastasized to her bones. March 30 I had a full blown panic attack. Right now I am feeling panic as my body remembers these events. April 12 she had her first chemo; April 13 we found the cancer had spread to her liver; April 14 we started hospice and June 12 she died. I am not looking forward to Spring. My anxiety is creeping up and up.

Anna, I am sending you ((((HUGS))))). I pray for some peace send your way. I know sometimes this grieve hits me and I feel like I can't breathe. I hope your panic attack subside. Take care.  

March 7, 1969. That is my husband's birthdate. He passed away on February 10, 2017. He was only 47. 

March 7, 1978, he was 37 when he passed away.  I was on a plane most of day this year on his birthday.  My daughter's visited him and sang happy birthday.  I woke up in a hotel that morning and cried, I miss him.
