Our 40th Anniversary

"Enjoyed looking at your pictures.  Happy Birthday #72 - not really a "happy" birthday.  I know what you mean by being alone, me too.  I am 74 and always alone.  If I want to go out, lunch, show, etc. I go alone. …"

"Laurajay, I think that was a good idea to put special items in a box.  I did donate clothes to charities, after about 1-1/2 years, mostly verterans, but it took me a couple of days because I had to lay down in between because it was so…"

"I still wear my ring too.  It's almost 3 years.  I tried going without it, but my finger feels empty after 41 years.  I don't care what people think.  I am not looking for anyone, so what difference does it make."

"My heart also goes out to all that have lost their spouses seems like error on the doctors.  I too feel that way.  I should have done more and you feel powerless, you think you are in good hands with the doctors who care for our spouses.…"

Mrs. L. replied to Miket's discussion Does it ever end. in the group Widowed in 2016
"Yes, I am struggling like you.  Just the two of us.  How do we go on, but we must.  I did not go to grief counseling because I didn't think it would help.  I am just about at 16 months too."

"I am so, so sorry to read about the passing of your husband.  Sounds to me that if the doctor would have intervened in his shortness of breath his passing would not have happened..  I just feel so bad for you.  Where do you go from…"

Welcome Fran,  I joined Soaring Spirits and Widville about a week age.  My husband passed 5 months ago. We were married 39 years.  This is a great place for support. Hope to talk soon.
