Your journey is your own. Anyway you feel is normal, you just have to live with it. Family is valuable ..... let people help and take care of yourself. 

I’m almost 16 months and I’m not sure how to verbalize what its been like. It sucks though. I’ve been being tolerant with the situation and others, and being a little selfish with myself. I still cry a lot.  Be patient with it all and especially yourself.

My wife passed away on September 28th 2019 after a 5 year courageous battle against cancer , we had just celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary on September 15th and Lyn’s 60 birthday in June. My daughter Chevaun and granddaughter Mia Rose are trying to stay strong as we know that’s what Lyn would have wanted but there is so much pain right now it’s very difficult.

God bless her on her new journey she will walk beside us forever.
