"Yesterday at the 7 month anniversary of Dan's passing, I seemed to hear his whistle! That was rather strange. I have not had any sense of his presence or anything all this time but I heard his distinctive whistle. Not sure what that…"
"I would not say I am depressed. But like today when I kept myself busy all day and have yard work that my husband always liked to do but is a chore for me and had my lonely supper and watched a video and the loneliness swept over me. And my…"
"I got a note in the mail just yesterday offering to buy my house!
There is so much to do here in upkeep. My husband loved tinkering about the place and all the yard work. I am losing count of how many replacements and repairs I…"
"Today was not a good day. Cold and rainy. I was busy in the morning. But the thought of coming home to a cold empty house really bothered me a lot. Luckily I have a little project to work on this afternoon but still I cried. I kept wanting to…"
"At six and a half months, most of the financial things have been taken care. I worked hard to consolidate investments, etc. so I can understand and manage them. There is just one more out there that we cannot seem to get turned loose. All the…"
"I went through my husband's things in the first month. My brother and my sons had first dibs on what they could use. Several big bags went to charity. I still have some of his most iconic clothes and looking at them is hard. I…"
"It has been six and half months since I lost my Dan. Just the passing of time seems a bit unreal considering that I met him when I was 20 and was married to him for 42 years. The two shall become one it is said and half of me is no longer here with…"
"This first Easter without Dan was bitter sweet. My oldest son and family (1 granddaughter) and my brother were with me. My younger son chose to be elsewhere and he has been distant. I felt strongly that half of my family was missing,…"
"My husband passed away on the 27th of October last year. While I think of him everyday, I especially note the 27th of each month. Being a Catholic, I have Masses said for the repose of his soul every month on the 27th. I will continue to…"
"It is now 6 months for me as well. I just took a few days of retreat to think and pray and that has brought me more peace. You might think this is silly but I was wearing both my wedding ring and my husband's. I took…"
"I did go through my husband's clothing within the first month. I let my sons and brother have a first crack at what they wanted. ALL the ties were taken right away! The things I knew would not fit or they would not want went to…"
"I can totally understand. You know, there was a time years ago I entertained the thought of leaving my husband. Foolish me. I got over it. I have not dreamed of my husband which is a little surprising. But I can still…"
"I lost my husband of 42 years almost 6 months ago at age 64. And I have some concerns about growing old alone. I have visited the elderly pretty much all my adult life and do so now. I have seen many tears and sorrows of lonely and…"
"Oh Lisa! I like your picture; what a handsome couple! I have dreaded summer and the outside work that my husband actually enjoyed. I learned to mow the lawn-and we have a good sized lot--2 years ago. I do not do it all in…"
