Hi Donna,

I am new to the group and still trying to learn how to use the site. I read your post about your husbands belongings and it hit home. My husband has been gone for 6 years and I have not removed a thing from his closet. For the first couple of years, my kids would grab a sweater or a robe and wear it. My son, liked wearing his dad's shoes. When I felt the need to be close to him I wore one of his shirts or hoodies. I just can't bring myself to empty out his closet because I find it gives me comfort.

Donna, I also cling to the idea he is coming back. The hole in my heart can’t ever be filled. I am now getting involved to help others to keep my mind off of self. My joy is helping and caring for others
