I am Suz. I lost my husband, Jud, on February 24, 2012, after fourteen months of pancreatic cancer. He was so loving and kind and was my soulmate. I miss him so much but in some ways I am starting to feel closer to him than I did right after his death. The good memories are starting to overshadow the years of his illness and I sometimes feel he is close to me. That being said, it has been a very hard year and I can't believe I have made it through. Welcome to all the new people. I hope you find as much comfort here as I have.

My name is Marlene and I lost my husband two days after his 66th birthday, March 17, 2012.  It has been a real yo-yo of emotions but I am getting through the days as best I can.  Being alone is the toughest for me...and the sense that there is no one that cares what I do any more.  I am reaching out and making new friends when I can but all things take time.  I am glad for this site and want to do my part in getting through this club that none of us wanted to join!

I lost my husband in April 2012 and was referred here by another member.  It has supported me through some very tough times this last few months.

I am happy you are here to find some help and support as you travel this journey of grief.

Wanted to say hello to those who just joined.  I lost my lovely husband in April 2012.  Didn't find this site until December, it really has been a great source of support, someplace to say whatever you are feeling and experiencing without reservation.  It is also nice just to read through these pages, it validates all of tumult, pain, despair, love, fear, grief, sadness (i could go on) that we are all feeling. Welcome, I am glad you found us, it is a great source of comfort and relief

Hi friends, thank you for joining this group "early" so it's not empty when new folks join. I am going to message a bunch of folks in the 2012 group as well and see if a few more will pop over.... it would be good to join, and then "bow out" in 3 or 4 months as the group grows... this will be an experiment... I've usually waited a while into the new year to start the group, but this seems to be more "natural".... let me know what how it's going! X to all for your help to each other!

I am joining too. My husband died on Dec. 21st so I am really new. I technically should be in the 2012 group but only by a few days. My life is in shambles, I'm just taking care of the basics for the kids, and I cry or wander most of the day. I sat and stared at a freshly dug grave (my husbands) for most of the day and will do it again tomorrow. We were together 20 years. I don't know how to be without him. :(
