"Hi Senecagirl. I'm so, so sorry for your loss. My husband died suddenly after 21 years of marriage, and I feel as if half of me is missing. My husband always said he didn't want a funeral. He wanted a party at our house with music and wine…"

"Hi Riley, my husband died a little over two months ago, very suddenly. Gilbert and I had been married 22 years. Everything you wrote resonates with me, down to the Hello Fresh! The two bath towels in the bathroom. Mine was on the left and his was on…"

Hi Melissa,

Thanks for the add friend. I am so sorry for the loss of your precious soulmate and husband Gilbert.

This whole grief thing is quite surreal. It has been 6 mths since my Bobby left now,and I guess Im coping better, but if Im being honest Im pretty pissed too.

So many times ,day or night I long to talk to him like we used too, and all I hear is my own thoughts or feel an emptiness..

I feel married but flying solo. Bat shit crazy.

Smiles and hugs for miles Melissa, You and Gilbert are in my thoughts x
