I am approaching the 4 year mark of widowhood.  On May 27, 2007, my husband died from brain annoxia 8 days after a heart attack that he had while training for a triathlon.  He was a "young" and fit man of 55 years.  We were happily married for over 26 years.  He was my best friend, lover, and soulmate.  By choice, we did not have children.   Thank you for this group.

Hi everyone--My husband died suddenly of a brain aneurysm 3 days before his 38th birthday.  I was pregnant with our 8th child, and gave birth 1 week after my husband's death...I have just started "year 4," and I'm looking forward to more growth and contentment...Thanks for starting this group, Supa :)

Hi. I am new to Widowed Village.  My husband died suddenly on 8/7/07 while we were on vacation with our children and four other families. He was 42.  Glad to have found this website/group!

What does the job of a "moderator" entail?
