Newly widowed

My husband passed away on May 7, 2020.  I hate being a member of this group.  It is a group none of us want to be in.  He died of prostate cancer that had spread to his bladder.  At the end I didn't want to let him go, but finally was willing to let him go.  He was the most romantic guy on the planet.  There was 14 and a half years difference in our ages but what a wonderful pair we made.  Everyone said so.  He was 85 and I am 71.  I just don't know how to go on, and most of the time I don't…See More

Loneliness

It has only been 2 months since George's death and the loneliness clings to me like a wet shirt.  I knew when I married him that this day would come too soon as he was 14 and a half years older than me.  Even with his death, I don't regret my decision to marry him.  As the Garth Brooks song says... I could have missed the pain, but I would have missed the dance.  For me, one of the worst things is having to put on the act of a happy face when I am dying inside as no one wants to be around…See More

I know. We had so many plans, none of which came to fruition and now never will.

My husband was 12 years older, and I too was hesitant about marrying him. He was a very good looking 70 and I was 58. 11 months after we married, he had emergency by-pass surgery, I think that shook his world and brought on the Alzheimer's.

I think the hardest part about losing him to Covid-19, was that I could not be with him at the end of his life. He was not talking at that point, but I will always wonder if he had a moment at the end where he might have said something. Something like I love you, or hi mom.

I hope you find solace in this group and feel you can say what is on your mind, it will help with the healing.
