"KJPE, Beautiful book. I find it in our local library, even translated in my own language: Dutch.
I sometimes want to act as that little girl: put my heart in a bottle to hide it away from grief.
In our region , today we had a most…"
"I have to tell you this silly story. I went to the garage this morning. The only thing that was wrong with the car were ..... my ears. No strange noises. Only panic too soon. So this whole situation would not have happened to my husband.…"
"Indeed how simple was life with my dear husband. And how full. I'm still recovering from my broken hip.It goes well. But how lonely is it sometimes. I am very well helped by nice people, but all the small consoling things he did for me no…"
"Everything has changed since my love died. Very much. Everything changed when he suddenly became incurably ill in 2014. But nothing can be compared to the time that came afterwards. The dreams are gone, the hope is gone. Away the little things to…"
"The prospect of the coming year without him makes me frightened and depressed. I know that many beautiful things are coming. But everything will be without him. How do I do that? How can I then enjoy it? Yesterday there were suddenly two invitations…"
"Even after 9 months, the loss of my husband continues to hurt incredibly. KJPE, you say this so aptly: "because my body remembers how happy and lifted my heart would feel". And now that feeling never comes back. The shine and color has…"
How bad that you have to experience this. So terrible that this happens to young people. I hope for you that your attempts to get in touch with this family will work. You do everything that is possible. But what is that with some family members?…"
Thank you so much for your comforting words. I needed them very much. I will keep this in my heart. And read it again and again when difficult moments appear. Also hugs to you and to everyone having a hard time."
"The dreams in which my husband lives are seldom pleasant. I see him and call him, and I know he hears me, but he can not answer and goes away.I am always broken after such a dream. I'm even afraid to go to bed at night. I would like to ask him…"
I recognize your story. My husband died on April 20, 2018. I do not feel any progress since then. I miss him every moment. I can not believe that he is no longer there, and will never be there again. I also do not feel him near now. I am now…"
"I too have a difficult period in this new year. It does not feel like a new beginning at all. Just like a dull and pale remnant of what was once so wonderful.I received some travel brochures. Very interesting to do with my husband, but so useless…"
I broke my hip replacement and had a lot of self-pity .. I am recovering now, and had a lot of help from my children and grandchildren. I see how much worse your illness is. I miss my dear husband every moment, he helped me through…"
"The only way to survive all this is to become completely numb. Can this be true? These days between Christmas and New Year bring me so many memories. It was the time of us together. No obligations in this week. So , every year, we went on an…"

Melanoma started inside. Diagnosed Dec after wierd bruises then thought after surgery snd meds and radiation was fighting it but then started getting weaker and weaker than went to ER 2 hrs later had severe seizures and did not respond they said to wait 24 hrs but didn’t make it. COR and all meadures tried. Absolutely a nightmare that haunts me daily
I truly appreciate you responding. You are the first one to comment. My husband fought cancer too but only for 6 months . Its all too fast and horrible. He was the love of my life of course. We only had 14 years it just wasn’t enough. Seems like if in stage 4 and mets to brain the treatment s just aren’t good enough. But I don’t know if it was his time it was his time but I will never understand it. It’s definitely shaken any faith I had. Pretty much trying to make it 5 minutes at a time.
