"The only thing from grief that can be expected is the unexpected ... Do hold hands w/Bayoured & others - there will be scary moments of screaming twisting & turning in the dark like riding on Disneyland's Space Mountain rollercoaster…"

If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me?
For I must be traveling on, now
Cause there's too many places I've got to see
But, if I stayed here with you, girl
Things just couldn't be the same
Cause I'm as free as a bird now
And this bird you can not change

It's been 5 long hard months since the day my sweet, wild, and wonderful Jerry passed away. It's been a real struggle to grow, and keep learning. Sometimes, I pushed myself, sometimes others have pushed me. Then there were the times when I threw in the towel and just had a bad day! Grief is hard work and it's taken me on one helluva ride. (Okay, stop I'd like to get off here.)....

Unfortunately, getting off isn't an option. I loved hard, therefore I grieve hard. I wouldn't change a…

Have you gotten to the point that you can see clearly?  Do you know what you need to do to march beyond the grief into a future that is full of mystery and possibilities, yet be afraid to make a move towards your goal?  

I'm at that point, I am so tired of living between worlds.  I'm tired of moods that change as easily as the tide.  However, to me, it seems it takes a whole bunch of courage to move into the great unknown.  I have never had the courage to really put myself out…

It's been awhile since I've had anything to say.  Profound sadness has had me locked up in a choke hold.  I tend to retreat within myself during those times.  Like a clam closing, it's shell.  I'm feeling a little better, okay actually I'm feeling a lot better.  From somewhere in my little clam world the theme from Rocky begin playing on a loop in my head. …


What's with her?

 Since Jerry's death, I have heard the whisperings of people who may or may not be well-meaning.  It is a really small town and everyone knows everyone.  So, I expect that I have to hear things I don't like or answer questions when I really don't want too.  Ignorance runs rampant around my town.  Not everyone, most folks are kind or mean well even if they don't cut the mustard.  

I am on the fence, should I fight stupid with stupid?  Should I put my mask on and pretend all is…

Misty, you have been dealt a terrible blow, losing Jerry and your ex husband in such a short space of time. Must be really hard for you and your children. My thoughts are with you. Hopefully you have some close friends who will support you plus the friends you make on this website. X

Thank you Misty. I should introduce myself. My name is Vanda, i’m 59, live in Wales, UK and have two children, Mike 31 and Sammi, 28.i lost my husband, Phil,  on 31 March 2017 to pancreatic cancer. Phil was diagnosed in early February 2017 and seven weeks later he passed away, aged only 56. That’s when our world fell apart!!

the past year has been so hard for the three of us. We can’t imagine how we will cope with the long years ahead of us without Phil. So many people loved him and there was a huge turn out for his funeral but many people fall by the wayside. Luckily I have a handful of close friends who keep in touch regularly. We were such a close family and enjoyed going on holiday together. Phil had served 31 years in the Police and we were looking forward to many holidays, relaxing together, but all of this and all that he worked so hard for was taken away from him.

Phil loved his music, Elton John being a firm favourite from the seventies. He also loved to visit America with Mike. They visited LA, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Florida and New York on many occasions.

Life seems so meaningless without Phil.

I’m sorry for your loss too, Misty. Hopefully I will find friends and comfort from visiting this site, as you have done.

Hi Rainy, thankyou for reaching out to me and I am sorry for being late as I am stuck in all the legal matters now which i don't feel like doing but i have to. Honestly speaking I am not doing good.I feel like screaming, I don't know what to do. It has been 40 days and i still feel it was just yesterday. I feel his presence. He was my habit my daily routine. My day started with him and ended with him. Why does God take someone so soon? What more "GOOD" plans he has??
