"To MSLV4 - I loved being reminded that my husband's energy is all around me. I miss him so horribly right now. I will continue to talk to him and hold on to the promise of someday being together again! Thanks...."

"Gigi, I really appreciated the perspective you presented. I feel like the grief blocks my ability to see things differently than what is stuck in my brain right now. Your words have encouraged me and reminded me that God's promise of eternal…"

"I read this today: Our loving Father in Heaven does not want us to be in pain.  There is no pain in Heaven.  There is no loss in Heaven. Only joy. But we live in a painful, broken and fallen world. Pray: God I believe You are still good…"

"Rere -- I was just reading about good and evil -- without evil in the world, we wouldn't know good. Without sadness, we wouldn't know happiness. I hope that makes sense. Also, where was God when you're husband died such a traumatic…"

"Barbee - your email made me laugh. I could just picture the "4" of you in the motorhome. Am so happy for you that you have this new life with someone special. Thanks for the other "tips" too!!"

" I'm so sorry Rere,  I'm not sure easy will ever come but I think manageable will.  Friends of mine who have lost their husbands unexpectedly and due to illness tell me this is how it is.  I just miss my husband as well…"

"Hi all, We all get it, wondering when this will end? The loneliness and the sadness.  I don't think the kids understand fully the loss of a life partner.  But we only understand what directly effects us - that maybe why Carol the kids…"

"I am so sorry Rere, I lost my husband just before you did on March 31st.  I felt like God had abandoned us for the first couple of days, then gradually, as I was ready, God was there, waiting for me to see he was there all the time.…"

"Yes, I would give the same advice as "barbee" Waiting is NOT a bad thing at all.  I have my husband's ashes on a shelf in our family room.  I find comfort that a part of him is close even though I know his soul, who he is,…"

"I lost my husband in April to COVID and cannot cope witht he trauma of how it happened. I too am trying to keep my faith in God but it seems almost impossible right now., How can a merciful, kind God take someone we love in such a brutal way? It has…"

"Gigi, a suggestion for you to think about. You mention you aren't sure what to do with your husband's ashes. Waiting is not a bad thing. Take your time. I kept my first husband's ashes and when I met the man who would become husband…"
