I lost my wife of 2 years tragically in a car accident, in late Jan. we had been married for 2 years and together for 3.5. The loss of my best friend has truly been an unreal process. Although we didn't have any children we had two and and dreamed of moving to the beach to start a family. I miss her all the time and am lost without her.

Jp,  I'm so sorry for your loss, but glad you've joined us. The Groups are a good place to start; you'll find others with circumstances similar to your own. The Chat room is a great source of real time support. Links to both are at the top of your page. I hope you'll find the same comfort and friendship here that I have. Welcome.
