Thank you for the kind welcome. I feel like I've been to hell and back,or maybe I'm still there.I'm the first of our friends to claim the widow title. I think everyone is afraid of me now like I'm going to spread this disease of widowhood.So sorry about your wife.Cancer is so evil.Thank God they are in a better place.
Thank you for your kind words. I'm so sorry for your loss as well. You're right, 12 years wasn't enough but I thank God everyday for the time I did have with him and the 2 boys he left behind. Thanks for your support :)
Thanks for the nice comments. I'm glad that my incoherent ramblings have helped someone on this miserable journey. We can make it, we have to make it, we will make it through. Your wife was quite a lovely lady, and you look so happy with her in your pictures.
I live half a block from Disneyland, if you ever bring that grandson there, stop by.
My mother died of lung cancer so I can relate to your dear wife's struggle...None of us wanted to have to join this club but here we are and we have each other to help us on this journey called grief. Unlike you I am farther out on the road..nearly 2 years..Danny had a undiagnosed cancer of the liver..it was one screw up after another and he suffered such pain...and I and the family mental distress..But by God's Grace my life is nearing a normal state...each day is easier and I cry less and laugh more at the memories.
I am still working but will be semi retiring as of June 7th when school ends. I am an Early Childhood Educator and have been doing it for nearly 46 years..it is time for me now. I also will be moving to Colorado with my daughter and husband and starting a new chapter in my life..I am scared and excited at the same time. I will be leaving behind my middle girl and 4 of my Grandchildren.My oldest lives in Washington and has 2 children....
