Hi, I’m Amy. I became a widow on March 14 when my husband of 21 years collapsed on our kitchen floor. We never got him back. We have seven children ranging in age from 7 to 20.

Hi Amy. I am so sorry for your tragic loss of your husband. I know it is probably difficult with the younger children, but I hope the older ones will be a source of comfort for you in the future, as I am sure they are sorting out their own feelings right now.

Please know that we are here for you. Posting helps as a type of journaling, at least for me. It also helps to get feedback from others. Especially when you discover you are not alone in your emotions and struggles.

Hugs and peace to you.

Hi Amy, I'm so sorry you've had to find us.  Tess is so correct, somehow it helps so much to read others struggles,  often times I find myself in others post.  I've found posting my own thoughts and struggles is a wonderful validation of sorts.  My children are 16, 18 and 21.  I'm 7 months into widowhood.
