So sorry we meet this way but glad you found us. I am not a part of this site, but am someone who loves to share his story while hating it at the same time. My story is one of great losses, my Son Died at 19 yrs old on 11-26-11, then My wife died a fairly sudden death on 2-1-12, followed by my dad on 4-1-12 and now my Friend of 30 yrs his wife In June of 2012 so this does not make me an expert but does give me some common ground with most. So as you take this walk through the tunnel of grief nknow that you are not alone and I for one desire to assist in any way i can....
once again not a proffessional or a part of widowed village or soaring spirits just a big lug that cares!!
Welcome Kookie: 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".
