Age 36 widow with a 2yo.

Sigh, my husband, aged 40, passed away on Jan 5 leaving a 2yo and heartbroken wife. He and I met 15 years ago in college, fell madly in love, and were still so in love until the day he passed. His passing on created this void inside me as I have no idea how I'm going to deal with the hardships ahead of me. I miss him, 24/7.

We are grateful you found us so soon after your loss, but until this group grows please feel free to also join the Widowed in 2015 group. There are active conversations there with others in their first year of loss.
