Have any of you been living with someone else at the time of your spouses' death and had trouble getting his possessions back? We were living with his parents at the time of the accident, and there…Continue

Sometimes, it is very hard to imagine that this is the life that we are supposed to be living, especially after all, we are all dealing with such a great loss in our lives. Find joy in the fact that you were lucky enough to find that person, though, out of all the people in the world and able to…

It's another day without the man or woman you loved with all you had, the one you planned to spend your forever with. Most days start like that for me, and I slowly work my way out of it. Other days are awful, and it takes all I have not to just curl into a ball on the couch and sob uncontrollably. Right now, however, I feel okay. Today wasn't too bad. I spent it…
