My husband of 25 years died unexpectedly on Memorial Day at the age of 49. I am caring for our two teenage daughters and trying to learn how to guide them - and myself - through our new reality. I haven't found any other support groups, so I was very happy to stumble upon this online community.

Morning, sorry for the late response. I live in Oceanside CA. So not to far from LA depending on what city maybe an hour or so. I will definitely check it out. Your so right it's been 3 months since my husband passed away. And I get so lonely. I have my adult children and grandkids. But it's not the same. When they leave I'm all alone and that's when it hits me the most. Trying to connect with others in my area that understand what I'm going through. Thank you for responding.
