Hi all....I was born in '72, my handsome hubby in '76... he used to tease me that I was the sexy senior and he was the geeky freshman, haha. I lost him 27 days ago to a heart attack while we slept. He was the best thing that ever happened to me, a wonderful husband and loving dad to my kids. Sadly we did not have kids of our own....we met 3 years ago and were just married in November. I am new here and trying to find some peace....understanding....SOMETHING to help me get through this : ( I'm so very sorry for each of your losses....we all have a story, and they are all heartbreaking.

Hi Pnak and all!! I found that year 2 anniversary was also harder than the first. You are getting out of the daze right and trying to get into your "new normal" It's hard! I was born in 77, my honey Joe in 79. He died in 2008 at 28 in a motorcycle accident.

Hello everyone. I was born in 1971 and my late husband was born in 1968. He passed away 9/7/2009 at the young age of 41 after having suffered a fatal heart attack. We have a total of 7 children but shared 2 of them together, who were 5 and 3 when he passed away. I hate not being able to hear his voice anymore or see his smiling face or hearing him say "I love you more I win!" Truth is I won the day I met him!

Hello all, I was born in 73 and my husband in 74. He passed away in September 2010 11 months after being diagnosed with colon cancer and our DD recently turned 3. We are all so young to be widowed - the worst part for me has undoubtedly been trying to parent on my own. DD still cries for her dad most days, it's so sad to see....

Hello, I was born in 1970 and my husband was born in 1972. He passed away this past May 14th two weeks after his 39th birthday. He battled gastric cancer since 2004, was diagnosed when our first born was 8 weeks old(daughter). We also have a three year old son. I miss him more and more each day, never seems to ease up. Yesterday was my birthday - first time in 17 years that I didn't wake up to his smiling face wishing me a happy birtthday...then joking around about how much older I am than him (:

I miss that terribly...

Hi everyone. I was born in 79, and my husband was born in 76. He passed away almost three months ago. We would have celebrated our 14th anniversary in August. I married him a month after my 18th birthday. Feeling alone while trying to raise our three children.

Hello, I was born in 75 mu hubby was born in 80 I lost him almost 1 month ago seems weird to say that almost a month seems like it was just yesterday. My husband was an epileptic and took a bath and had a seizure while in the tub. I was in a different state at the time when it happened visiting and taking care of family. So the regret of leaving and the if I was there this never would have happened is driving me crazy. We didn't have any kids. I miss him and love him so much
