"Wow! NoLongerInBergen. You really hit a core with me. It has been 4 plus years since Jerry died and this year has been a challenge for me. Both of my daughters have gone through divorces from very narcissistic men. I sold my home and moved 40 miles…"

"Riverside...I understand your pain. I had come home from work to find that my husband had passed away from a heart attack. Our youngest grandson was just 4 days old. We had been up to see him and had just returned home the evening before. Know that…"

"May your grandson always have that special grin that only his grandfather can bring to him. Our loved ones that have passed are never really very far from us. Bless you this holiday season with joy and happiness as seen through the eyes of a young…"

Seashell replied to only1sue's discussion What are the fundamentals of dating in your 60s and 70s?
"I was 14 when I met my husband. 22 when we married. I can count on one hand how many men I dated between that time. My husband was one who loved me unconditionally. Always built me up. Never looked at another woman. And, we were friends. I…"

Seashell replied to Former Yooper's discussion When Does It Stop
"The sadness may always be there. Some years it would come prior to the anniversary date and end with a crescendo on that day. This year the days before it seemed relatively mild with the emotions flooding into me on the day of or after. September,…"

Seashell replied to kenslove 's discussion So many different identities....
"Dear Ken's girl - I know what you mean. For 35 years I was "Jerry's wife" - and a mother and grandmother. Then I became a "widow" and a "single" woman but I had never lived as a single woman. It's been 4…"

Seashell replied to InsideLove's discussion Is morning or night worst for you? How do you get through it?
"It has been four and a half years since Jerry passed. Mornings are still the hardest time for me. There are times I still cry. There are times I pray to make it through another day. There are times I wish we were together again. The pain does lessen…"

"Thank you all for your kind words. I went home last night and pulled out the pictures a friend had taken of my husband's funeral. It was the first time I allowed myself to see them. Although we were all grieving it was good to see smiles and…"

Seashell commented on Soaring Spirits's group Born in the 50s
"I am very grateful to have had Jerry for nearly 35 years. I still celebrate our anniversaries by counting them. This year would have been our 39th anniversary. No matter when we lose our spouse it is always too soon. It's amazing how each of…"

Seashell commented on Soaring Spirits's group Widowed in 2013
"Well, no one has been here for awhile so I guess I can feel pretty safe writing this. Today someone made a judgemental comment about the religious beliefs of the Church my husband's funeral was held in and how depressing their funerals were. I…"

Seashell commented on Soaring Spirits's group Born in the 50s
"Thank you Barzan for your uplifting words. Both of my daughters are going through difficult times right now and I know they need to hear those words of praise from me. I had a difficult relationship with my oldest daughter for a good many years and…"

"I lit candles yesterday in memory of my husband, his mother, my friend's mother. I lit candles for my brother, John, and my parents who have all passed away. Afterward I took a scenic drive and stopped at a nursery and purchased a tomato plant,…"

"Thank you SweetMellisa. Tomorrow is the 4th anniversary since Jerry's passing. I am hopeful that I will be able to totally lay this day aside. It follows only 4 days after the birth of our last grandchild who just turned 4 this year. I can look…"

Seashell commented on Jerseygirl2525 (Andrea)'s blog post I don't know where he's buried
"Your cousin is a cruel man. I am sorry that he has done this to you and others. If you do choose to exhume his body is there someone who knows him that can view him for you?  I buried my husband's cremated remains near his parents who are…"

"I have a question for those of you who may have experienced this or know of someone who has. I can be on time or early in getting ready for work in the morning but by the time I get into my car I find that I am 15 minutes behind. It seems as though…"
