Hi Life3407, I am so sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you! My sweetie passed on October 16, 2012 after battling ovarian cancer for 8 yrs. It almost seems surreal that she is gone. We were high school sweethearts so I am trying to deal with this emptiness that I couldn't even imagine. I'm even tearing up while typing this but it needs to come out. I find this site comforting and helpful overall. We all have common thoughts and feelings that we experience on our journey. I find that essentially, what I'm going through, is normal. Please feel free to message me if you would like. I'm a good listener. I wish you the best! Bruce
I'm truly sorry for your loss! I see we share similarities in the nature of our husband's death. It's a rough road as you know! I believe surrounding ourselves with others who understand is key. Keep reading, posting and pm me anytime. We will heal! Hugs Jennifer
