Dear Les. I'm so sorry for the loss of your John. I'm also very sorry you had to spend your first birthday without him in 26 years. This was my 3rd without my husband in since he died in 2012. We had been married for 37 years. My hubby had a nearly 2 year battle with brain cancer, so I had some "time" to try to prepare myself. Your time with your love was so much shorter. No matter whether the time was short or long, we both lost the people who mattered the most in the world to us. It's a very challenging time of year, as you already know. We understand your just wanting the year to be over. Try to just do what YOU want this year, and do what is comfortable to you each day. The heck with what others expect from you this year. They don't know what you are going thru. Come chat with us any time. There is always someone around who isn't sleeping.
My deepest sympathy on the loss of your beloved. I believe you will find comfort and encouragement here, sometimes more so than on the "outside" world.
Oh Les, you poor thing . You would never expect anyone fit and well to go so quickly. Shame on the medical fraternity not to consider his family history as a risk. II just popped in for a few seconds - as it is very late here in UK.
Take care of yourself. love from Pip
Thank God for giving you peace ......and enjoyment to enjoy this day....HUGS
Dear Friends. I knew you would all get it! Thank you so much for your kind thoughts and suggestions. There is NO way that gorgeous, sexy, thoughtful, bright hunk of a man I met and loved since the day I met him at 15 should not be here today. It just doesn't make any sense. He worked very hard and long hours his whole life, but this and Christmas were 2 of the days he took some time with the kids and me to make our days special. I will try to keep those memories forefront today. Getting a lot of love on WV and from my family and friends. Going to do something festive tonight with the kids when they get home from work. Thank God for them! and Thank God for all of you! Wishing you all some peace and joy this holiday season.
Thank you so much for your understanding!!
jocelyn, have a happy birthday I know your angel in heaven would want you to!
he was a big ball of mush all year who am I kidding..
Leendah that's how I feel about my Gordy... he was such a big ball of mush this time of year... we'd cry at the coffee comercials, hallmark , and all the Christmas movies... he was my knight in denim.... that came riding in on his steel horse... oh crap going to make myself cry again! LOL
