Hi Laurie

I am so sorry for your loss. Like you my husband passed away suddenly and it has been two years and I am still trying to comprehend that he is no longer here. Some days I feel normal and then others days I get deeply depressed. I too live in Long Island and both my kids are away at college. So I know how you are feeling. One day at a time is the only words that I can say to you. Having a forum like this brings me some measure of comfort and I do hope it does the same for you.
