"I love your reply. When you spend over half of your life with someone, you don't just change your feelings because of a technicality.  The idea of an "us" ring is beautiful. Bless you."

"Hi bacasino. I feel the same way. My wife passed 2 months ago yet it seems like an eternity since I have seen her. Other days thoughts come in my head like it was yesterday when she left. I am missing her so much at this moment. I hope and pray that…"

"It is funny how the time "after" stretches and shrinks.  I can't believe my husband passed just 3 months ago.  Some times it seems like it was just yesterday, and other times I feel like I've lived a lifetime in…"

"...I recall one of my sons, asking me if I felt like I was still married because he added technically and by law you are not. I just smiled at him and said Mans law is not my law. I choose to live by the law, but I do not come  under the law. I…"

"Thanks, Greg - and as for the wedding rings, I don't think there is anything wrong with still wearing your wedding ring.  If someone has told you otherwise, I'm guessing it was likely someone who has not experienced the loss of a…"

"Hi bacasino, nice to meet you here , I am a new kid on the block too. My Bobby fought an aggressive form of Head and Neck Cancer. The ride ,ups and downs over 2 yrs ending in a hellish pit is/was surreal. I am sorry for your loss."

I lost my husband of 20 years on September 15th due to complications related to his diagnosis of Cystic Fibrosis (CF). He was a wonderful man and father to our 2 children, ages 6 and 13, and served as an inspiration to so many. I am joining Widowed Village in hope to meet others like myself trying to navigate this crazy and unpredictable world of young widowhood.
