"Marsha and Mariposa, we have similiar views. The first things that I had to do was sell his motorcycle, boat and van. I couldn't maintain them and it really made me feel bad that it was his favorite things that had to be sold first. But for me…"

Wishing you strength today. Try to remember all those good years, and maybe get out a little bit to distract yourself. That's what helped me make it through my anniversary. Oh and by the way, happy anniversary!! Remember the love is still there
Hi Carolann. I saw your post in the Widowed in 2011 group, but since I'm not a member I couldn't respond there (I'm in the 2010 group). Just wanted to tell you that I also found it very helpful to carry my husband's wallet with me during my first months. At about the 3 month mark, I put his wallet away in a special place but placed his drivers' license in my wallet. It's the first thing I see when I open it and still brings me peace at 10 months. Blessings to you.
