19 months after burying my husband and 7 months after completing a questionnaire I got a call from the grounds keeper of Camp Butler Cemetery. I gave them a very poor review.

Mrs G, I hate the fact that you need a site like this, but I am very glad you found it.  Widowed Village was created by a whole host of wonderful widowed people with the Soaring Spirits Loss Foundation, and actually designed by WV member Supa Dupa Fresh -- I am simply grateful to help out here!

We have much in common -- I too lost my healthy, vital husband suddenly in July 2012 to what was eventually determined as "natural causes."  We had been married 24 years.  I have personally been so grateful to find this site.  I really feel this is a safe place to share whatever I need to share, and I can relate to so many things said here.  I hope you continue to find some comfort here, and I wish you much healing for your heart.  Please take good care of yourself.
