"Thank you, Randy for your kind words. I do have high hopes that things will improve. I know that my husband would not want me to be hurting the way I am. I try to address one day at a time, but there are many days I'd rather pass on and just…"

"Hugs to you sis. I'm not going to try to tell you that it will get easier. I have found that with the help of friends, it does make it tolerable. I have gained a great friend in Karen's best friend Patti. She has been my rock this past…"

"Thank you, Lucky. This is the hardest thing I have ever had to do, and it doesn't seem to be getting any better. I try to put on my "smiley mask" for people, but inside I'm crumbling. It's nice to have a place where people…"

"I get what you are saying. I lost my husband March 18, 2018, and it has been hell. I heard someone say that they sleep like a baby, up every 2 hours crying, and sometimes I'm not even sure it's 2 hours in between. I keep getting told…"

"I also feel like my husband died yesterday instead of April 2018. Can this pain continue like this? I feel like a small child who just wants to cry. Yet I am well supervised, but I miss him so much. A warm hug from a widow to another"

"Hi Randy, I am so sorry for your loss. It is unimaginable. I lost my bestie, my dear sweet husband, my honey bunny, October 30th, 34 days ago. He was my everything and we were together 20 amazing years. Just typing this is breaking my heart. I know…"

Lost my wife last January

My wife and I were married on 09/15/2017. She passed on 01/05/2018. Even though we were only married those few short months, we were together for 10 years. She was the love of my life. We had that once in a lifetime relationship the everyone wants. Now that the holidays are rolling around it's not getting any easier. I still cry a lot. It has been a rough year to say the least.See More

Hi Randy, I am so sorry for your loss. It is unimaginable. I lost my bestie, my dear sweet husband, my honey bunny, October 30th, 34 days ago. He was my everything and we were together 20 amazing years. Just typing this is breaking my heart. I know you too must be devestated.  I wonder how people live through such an infinite loss. This giant loss that has no limits. Do you wonder about that too? I  miss so much about my darling husband. Things I wasnt even aware existed, like his scent, or his PRESENCE. The comforting feeling I would get from him just walking in the room. The gift of knowing he accepted me exactly as I am, my flaws and secrets and quirks. The knowledge that he cared about me dearly... DEARLY..and sweetly..Oh my gosh... it is unfathomable the loss I feel. Losing my partner ...... My friend and my other half. The encourager of my dreams, The person who accepted me and allowed me to be me. ... . just being liked and approved of and defended and protected... These were such a common feelings I wasn't aware of them. I just knew our love... Have you realized things like that too? I dont know if pouring my feelings out is acceptable or possibly in poor taste. I don't know so many things now.  I just recently joined this site and have not yet had the opportunity to explore what is and is not ok. but I saw your post and felt like I could share some of my feelings with someone that is also feeling so deeply it's hard to put into words. I thought too, that maybe I could share something useful or maybe even helpful in some small way. It is a little something that is helpful to me and I thought It was such a good suggestion.

Try to make new meaningful memories with the ones you love. Do count your Blessings. And do allow yourself to feel what ever it is you are feeling. You probably already know this but just in case.
