I'm in search of groups in my area and cannot find any so why not start one? I find that I don't always relate to our friends anymore or the married friends aren't comfortable around me and I want to get out with like minded people. So if you are in the area and would like to meet for Happy Hour, Brunch, Walks, ect let me know. This would be a time to be social around people who understand.

Thankful To Be Amongst Friends

On August 6th I lost my best friend, confidante, husband, father to our 3 kids - my soul mate Kevin in a motorcycle accident.  The man I love and the one I could fight with and have so much fun with.  We were friends for 25 years and together for 18 years and I miss him more than I can stand.

Like everyone else, some days are okay and others are so hard. The most shocking thing I found was that after a funeral that was attended by more than 500 people, only a few remained in our…

I'm like you & wish there was a group closer to the Indianapolis area. I did make contact with both the Columbus, OH & somewhere in NC groups through Dianna on here. She is a great resource. Maybe this club we're in will some day move from the " Best Kept Secret List" and become a little more know about across the country. Not to over think it, but we may have it good with things as they are. Too many people may bog down the site. On second thought, if that happened I'd gladly donate to get a larger server.

How far away is your closest group? I think the OH group is about 3 - 4 he's one way for me.

Best wishes.

Welcome to our community.... I hope we can keep you company on your journey ahead. Please look around a bit and read this basic introduction to the site. You can find more information about how the community works under "Help!" in the navigation bar, and we'll send you a few newsletters with tips and ideas in the coming weeks. If you need a little more help, go to the Home page and look in the right hand column to see the link to a "Help Desk" form.
We all use the site differently, but we hope you feel comfortable sharing among us in the coming days, weeks, and months.
Big hug!

Hi Dedee and welcome to this site!  Im sorry you had to join but I hope it will help you as it has for me.  Our husbands were close in age at their passing.  My husband passed away Nov 2011 due to a sudden heart attack.  We have a 2 year old son.  I know what you mean about people remaining after.  After his funeral "friends" called to check on me or to help babysit but now nothing and I can barely get them to babysit.  Im thankful for my small support group that I do have and for my mom for raising me to be strong.  I still have my moment and my heart still aches for him.  What would have been our 10th wedding anniversary is coming up on April 6th.  Whenever you need to talk feel free to inbox me

Welcome Dedee to the one group I wish none of us had to join, but I'm glad it's here now that we need it. I hope you will find the same peace and comfort here like I have over the past 9 months. My journey is long from over but being here with people that truly understand has helped in so many ways. We will always be here if you need us.

Welcome Dedee: I'm sorry for your loss but I'm glad you found your way to this site. I hope you will find the same comfort and understanding here at WV that I have. In the beginning I just read the blogs and posts and lurked in chat. Post and join us in chat when you feel comfortable. It is nice to be among people who "Get It".
