Profile Information

Dave died on June 14 2010 at the age of 45.

He was diagnosed with esophageal cancer exactly 6 months earlier. We refused to believe it was terminal and fought it to the very end.

He was active and very much alive. It was surreal and heartbreaking to say the least to watch him fade away and die in front of our eyes.

We have a 20+ year old son.

As you all know, life is not the same and pretty much just sucks.

Happy to have found WidVille at about the 1 year mark. Wish I'd found it earlier.

Valarie welcome to our community of broken hearts.  We are all here because we lost the one closest to us.  I lost my Madeline on May 16 and it has been an emotional roller coaster, just as your loss has been.  We are here for each other so when you feel like your friends and family just don't understand, come here and pour out your feelings because We will get it.  We are having the same feelings and emotions you are having.

When you hear those funny little bleeps that means someone is in the chat area talking in real time. Click on the chat button, it doesn't mean you have to chat, you can just lurk as we call it, and see what the topic is.  When you are ready jump in and say Hi I am new.  We will all welcome you.
