Welcome Wendy, what month, I'm August, Joanna is July, if you're before her you'd be the new oldest member of this group ;)

Hi, I'm 30 (born in 1980 -- I just made it in to this group!).  I was widowed in January 2010 at the age of 29.  My husband, who was 31, had a pulmonary embolism (blood clot in his lung).  We had no kids, just cats.  I'm setting up a new life in a new place now.

Hello Amber-my thoughts go out to you and thankfulness for your husband serving, which I know in no way helps lessen the pain. Thanks for finding us here.

Hi everyone! I'm Amber, I'm 23 and have a 4 yr old daughter. I lost my husband in June of 2010 while he was serving in Afghanistan.

Hello Jeri & Krusty.  Glad you introduced yourself.


Krusty-Birthdays are super tough.  I'll be thinking of you then, as I am now.  29 is too young.


Jeri-Unbelievable to be pregnant and widowed, something I simply cannot imagine.  My heart goes out to you.

Hey everyone. I'm a 26 year old mother of a crazy 3 year old boy. I was widowed at 22 years old, 10 months pregnant.
