Thanks, CrazyWidow!  I think I'm getting to the point in my recovery that what I need most now is practical advice on living as a widow/widower, so this board will be a good thing for me.  I think this is where I'll unleash all my weird dating questions that cause my friends to say, "Well, I don't know how it works in your situation, but..."  LOL

Welcome Wendy-I read  your introduction on the forum and I just think it's amazing what you have done to "reinvent" yourself.  Glad you're here!

Thanks Peter.  I'm a December b-day, so not the oldest.  Yes!

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.
