"I could have been more loving. Being sensitive to touch, I was not much of a cuddle bug. Really the years of Dan's illness drew us ever closer. I got to care for and love him all the more as the one fortunate to be the one to be with him…"
"Our Aussie came to us after her previous people had passed away. She stayed very close to Dan during his illness and slept under his hospital bed after that awful day when it was set up in our living room and we knew what that meant. …"
"I love that you would have arrived early for that little more time! My husband told me 2 weeks after our first date that he loved me. I said for him to tell me again in 6 months. He said it again for the rest of his life...."
"How strange. Have not had that but I have had (spam) emails from his email address and when his name comes up, it is startling. And one day when I was snoozing on the couch next to his easy chair I sensed Dan saying, "Caught you…"

"I visit a senior home and almost every widow wears her wedding rings. My widowed Aunts wear theirs. I was wearing both mine and Dan's but now I am just wearing a small silver band. I married once and it was for life---even after his is…"
"It has been 19 months for me since I lost my husband. I felt the same way. I met my husband when I was 15 and married him when I was 17 so I went from my parents house to living with my husband. I was with him for 36 years and I felt so lost when he…"
"Yes, we are in the same place. Had the sprinkler guy out again today and I think, hope, for the last time. I even gave him the boxes of sprinkler repair items that my husband had collected and he took off part of my bill.
Yesterday I attended an…"
