Great talking to you on chat last night. Here is a website called www.voicemailsforever.com
I'm going to try it out next month.
There is a website site called voicemails4ever.com and that way you can have them on a mp3.
I ironically saved some of his voicemail messages and some were when we dated, but one imparticular says "I just wanted to tell you I love you before I go out on the road." How I will always treasure hearing his wonderful voice.
10 months today. Not sure how I made it this long. I've felt Richard beside me this past week and I think that gives me strenth. Not a day goes by that I don't think about him, long to feel his touch or miss hearing his voice.
LadyScorpio, 2 months is still so new, hang in there. The rips will start coming fewer and farther between. (((hugs)))
mem5711, Thank you, the women from the mortuary gave me some information about www.griefshare.org, its a 13 week course at local churches I think. I am going to look into it.
Valerie.L, I know exactly what you mean, I am at the 12 week mark and all I have done all week is cry, the need to see Dave feels like desperation, even my dogs seem to cry with me, I'm not looking forward to Valentines day either and 12 days after that would have been our Ruby Wedding Anniversary !!
we're doing it Valerie L. we are hangin in there!!! we will get through this.
(im @ 4) and it definitely does not get easier. the first little while we are so consumed with planning a funeral, getting legal papers in line, closing accounts, setting up new ones, ... we dont have the time to understand how we are feeling. then for the first little while you have your support system there for your every need...but those ppl do have a life of their own, and soon the calls are less frequent...and the loneliness really sets in.
I asked my psychologist yesterday why all of us who are at roughly the 3-6 month mark (I am at 3-1/2 months) are having a really rough time right now? The last few days I can't seem to stop crying, and he says (not that everyone grieves the same) but that when we lose someone that for about the first 3 months we are in a fog, just going through the motions, then after we start to "awaken" per say, the reality really starts to kick in. I thought it would start to get easier, but it's not :(
judy: AWWW, hope that feeling lasts throughout your day!!! (hugs)
