Hi Mich!  How's it going?  I'm trying to stay busy too.  My father just passed away in September and my mom's been having a hard time.  We spent the day together and had each other laughing a lot. It helped us both.

How is everyone today? Yesterday was pretty good for not so much. I i hadn't had an appointment I probably wouldnt have bothered with anything.

No matter how it happens its horrible.  One moment at a time i guess.   Life goes and so will we.. slowly but surely maybe, but we will.

My husband passed away on January 10th. He committed suicide. It’s been hard getting use to being a single parent, but I just fake it I make it. Anyways nice to meet all of you

My husband died on the 5th Feb so just over 2 weeks ago. It was not sudden but still doesn't make it any easier. We have 4 children 22, 18, 16 and 7. We are all heartbroken but trying to get on with life as thats what he wanted us to do.
