Hi Elaine....I lost my husband to PC 11 months after diagnosis. It's still surreal for me to even type that sentence. He was only 48. He was a healthy, fit gym teacher and coach who loved his life and his family. I still haven't processed it all. It's so hard to get through each day. Some days are better than others. I was so happy and secure Before and now everything is broken. Thanks for reaching out to me.
I joined this site yesterday, but I've been on 2012 group. I ran out of everythingelse to look at today (bad day, spending hours on the computer) so I started looking at 2011 and there you were. I'm CharliesGirl on here. Julie
Hi, I got an email notice with the message you sent about our photos but don't know how to find it on my page to respond? So will try it this way.
Thank you, I LOVE our pictures too, I treasure having them! Yes, they were taken by a professional photographer friend of mine who just let us "be us" no posing for the camera, just us in love. They were taken May 17, 2011 3 very short months before Jeff passed away from GBM (brain cancer) Jeff never looked sick, we had no idea when doing this photo session that he would be gone so soon.

We all use the site differently, but we hope you feel comfortable sharing among us in the coming days, weeks, and months. Big hug! Supa site founder and admin
Welcome ebwilkie: I'm sorry for your loss but I'm glad you found your way to this site. I know you will find the same comfort and understanding here at Widowed Village that I have. In the beginning I just read the blogs and posts and lurked in chat. Post and join us in chat when you feel comfortable. It is nice to be among people who "Get It".
Sorry, Elaine, I missed where you had put your names. I see you are from Canada. Us Minnesotans kind of think we are Canadians. Jud and I loved every trip to Canada. We used to have friends in Toronto and, just last summer, went to Quebec City and Montreal (during the little space that he felt ok). We had a great time. I am going to have to get out the globe and find out exactly where you are.
