Hi jjordan.  I am so sorry for your loss.  I am so glad you found this site. People on this site helped me in some very dark moment.  I am sure they will be there for you too.  Your friends and family have no idea what you are going through unless they lost their loves.  People on this site have all lost their loves and they understand.If you have any question e-mail me.  I will send you a friend request, if you wish you can accept it.

Welcome jjordan: I'm sorry for your loss but I'm glad you found your way to this site. I hope 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".
