"Yes, in a heartbeat! Especially knowing what I know now I would realize she is the most perfect woman in every way possible and I would not miss a chance to see that smile or wrap my arms around her in a warm, lasting embrace!"

Birthday

Sunday is a double whammy day - my wife's birthday and Father's Day. My wife will be gone seven months. I miss her so much. Every year we exchange birthday cards and so I made sure to buy her one and fill it out. Now I have it on display in the house. In the meantime it is Fathers Day and my children and grandchildren want to go to her favorite restaurant. I said ok but this will be very painful for me as it will bring back too many memories of past wonderful times that I now so badly miss. How…See More

"I sincerely appreciate the replies you all have shared. I feel like I am accomplishing more in two days on this site than four months of individual therapy plus group therapy. I think it is because I have found "by widows and for widows" -…"

"Miket, your post was heartbreaking and yet so beautifully, brutally honest. Keep crying (though it is exhausting!) and keep grieving at your own pace. No one can tell you how to do this, nor should they try. Please hang in there. As suddenly as…"

"Miket - your question "How do you survive?" will produce millions of different answers.    We all survive differently.    Here's my way. Stuart died in November last year, of advanced prostate cancer just two…"

"Maybe the pain lessens, or maybe it is just different or something you become accustomed to.  Grieving is different for all of us.  There were times I had it together not long after my wife passed away, and there are times a year later…"

My Turn

I just found this web site. I hope it will help. My wife died in October from a sarcoma cancer in her abdomen. She found out in March 2016, went through chemo with the broken promises of possibilities and died six months later. I am crushed. I have tried grief counseling one on one and group therapy to little avail. Still too many questions and not so many answers - but the pain and sorrow won't quit.I can't seem to grieve at my own pace - family thinks I need to move on. They can't accept that…See More

Miket replied to lowrsr (Sherry)'s discussion Wedding Rings in the group Widowed in 2016
"When my wife died I did not know what do do with her ring - I did not want to leave it with her as I have heard many bad stories of jewelry disappearing, I did not want to leave it in a box to collect dust, and sell it - no way. So I took her ring…"
