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

I think I just realized I never posted in here!  I was born in 1970 and graduated in 1988!  I was widowed in 2009 and have two little girls now  almost  2 and 5.


So sorry we all have to be here...

haleO, I can relate. My husband and I shared a birthday too. It really takes so much away when you share a birthday too. It gives you one more day, especially one that should be just your day, to really get hit by it all over again. My heart goes out to everyone on the board.
