Hello Snydergirl. I am so sorry for your loss. I never really know what to say but welcome to this site. It is so very hard for people who have not lost their significant other to understand what your going through. People here all have lost their love and understand. When I first came to this site a person told me If I was meant to be be there when Ron died, I would have been there. This really gave me comfort. I personally believe that guilt and grief go hand and hand. It not like grief isn't hard enough without the added torture of guilt. I would not beat myself up over not being there. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I will do my best to help you. I will send you a friend request, if you wish you can accept.
Welcome snydergirl: 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"
