I'm sorry to hear of your loss. Unfortunately, I know your pain all too well. I'm newly widowed which is a word I never knew would exist in my category until many years from now. I am hoping this group will help me learn to cope with my husband's death. Talking with others who can relate sure feels better than those who have no idea how the loss of a spouse feels. 

Sometimes I just don't know what to say or how to act. I feel I'm supposed to say certain words and not say other words.

Soaring Spirits International has partnered with First Light Widowed Association, an organization for widowed people in Australia, to provide a forum for our Aussie widows to connect. Here's a link to that group page here in the Village:

I read your profile and your wife's journey with chills for she and you have been through.  It is with a heavy heart that I read all the chemo and treatments that she endured only to lose the battle.  She did not walk alone, as you were by her side and painfully watched and prayed that this is the "last" treatment and she would be okay.  I especially noted about you combing/washing her hair.  I had cancer in 1990 and my husband would wash my hair and watch it fall out.  I am sorry to say that he passed in May 2016.  In my experience I will never get over losing him and I hope and pray for "you".  All the support in the world will never ease your pain of your loss of your loving wife.  Perhaps, I do not word it correctly.  I pray for you.  .
