"I wonder if there's laws about this in the states. My husband has been released all over CA so far, including in some National Parks. I read not that long ago that you are not allowed to release remains in Disneyland and if you are…"
"You have found others here who truly know what you're going through. I lost my husband of nearly 15 years (together for 20, so pretty much half my life) in a mountaineering accident in June of 2016, 10 days after his mother passed…"
"I was 42 when my husband died suddenly in an accident last year (June '16). I have had the same thoughts as you -- who is out there? I hear so many horror stories about ex-spouses, and what little I hear about dating these days…"
"Yep - somewhat excited to go, but at the same time so sad I'm even in this "club". I feel I'm way too young to be a widow, but it's nice to know - and hopefully meet - some others like me. I plan to have multiple…"
"I'm driving down from Ventura County Thursday late morning so I can drop off my kids at my parents' house for the weekend. I will try to be at the hotel around 4, but it really depends on when my Mom gets home from work and how…"

"I wish I had done a journal for myself for the first year. The first few months tho are such a blur or meetings, paperwork, etc that it kept me very busy. Right around the 3m mark I did sit down and write out the series of events that…"
"I would love to. I've always enjoyed the show Long Island Medium and would love to run into her one day. Now that my husband is on the other side, I really want to meet with her or someone just as good. I would love to know…"
