I am so very sorry for your loss. It is just heartbreaking. I lost my sweetie on October 16, 2012. We were married 34-1/2 yrs and together 38 (since 10th grade). She battled ovarian cancer for 8 years and I was honored to be her caregiver. It doesn't seem real yet. i was with her when she went "Home" and it felt peaceful and right. I try to hang on to that thought. Easier said than done for sure. Quite often it is just overwhelming! I miss her brightness, tenderness, and loving spirit.
I wish you all the best. Hopefully, we are able to find peace along this difficult journey.
