"Absolutely without hesitation! I know it sounds cliche but I knew from the moment I met Sandy she was my soulmate. I am with you Rich if I could do it again I would also arrive early for the extra time together. "

"I don't know whether I still believe in an afterlife anymore, but I always did feel as though I had known Judith in some previous life. We were a hand-in-glove fit for 30-plus years--30 of them married."

I am new to this site, however I share you feeling of despair.  Almost 4 years and I am miserable.  Cannot look at pictures of my husband. Sounds like you are living hell on earth, I know I am.
