"My husbands daughter was getting ready to go back to her home in CA. after the funeral. She stopped me for one last question: Since you no longer have use for dad's wedding ring, can I have it? Completely stunned speechless. Still am."

I am happy to welcome you to the club no one wants to belong to :-) Ironic isn't it. Anyway, thank you for reaching out to me, I whole heartedly want to provide any support or help I can and please just know that we all here totally understand what you're (we're) going through. My husband died almost two years ago - the first year I mostly didn't get out of bed and often spent days wearing the same clothes, after all, who sees me and really , who cares if they do... not me. Anyway, I've gone from that to mostly changing my clothes and mostly taking a shower and if others care, I certainly don't. I've made a lot of progress along this road and you will too - it's just slow and very hard work but we are in this together and the group here is so amazingly supportive and loving --- please reach out any time you want to talk or vent or just even to scream --- we've all been there and will be again but the way you know things are getting better is that, even though the road is the same, the scenery changes. Thinking of you and wishing you peace - Angel Dawg
