I never expected it. Never was looking for it. Never saw it coming.  Just walked right into it. His love for me was endless, all encompassing, wild, crazy. He was life personified. He had so many friends. So many interests. So much energy. So much everything. And he loved me. He really really really loved me. Beyond all reason or understanding. 

Where do I go with this? Where do I take it? What do I do with it? 

This wild, crazy endless love.

Sunchaser, I am feeling as you do more and more these days.  Though the grief comes I have so much gratitude also for the wonderful love we had... a love we didn't take for granted.  I also see we were meant to be together and it was part of a greater plan.  My Edd taught me so much in the ten years we were together and a better husband I couldn't not have gotten.  He was the best and I had the best even though I miss him every moment.  Blessings on you and your journey....

Patience (Diane) ...  Your husband sounds very much like mine (he passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2011) and I asked myself the same thing 'where do I go with it.'  In my 2 1/2 years of grieving it has been the second year of a reality check where I can think more clearly and I miss my husband with every breath I take, but, I have come to realize how fortunate it was that he was introduced to me by a friend and we knew right then we were soul mates and we had such great memories throughout our 39 years of marriage (not perfect by any means, but near perfect.)  He was my strength, he encouraged me and I encouraged him and we both had a good sense of humor.  Now I realize it was part of a greater plan we were meant to be together and throughout those 39 years (knowing him 45 years) he taught me so much about life and also that we could beat anything in this world together. Why stop now?  We don't!  We hold them close to our hearts and remember what they taught us about love and life and we go on in their memory and 'pay it forward' ... we pass off the lust they had for life to others in hopes they will learn.  Many of us are so lucky we had someone so wonderful in our lives because not everyone is that lucky.

Diane, you just described my relationship with my Mark.  He loved me more than anything and would and did do anything and everything for me.  He too had so many friends, so many interests, so much energy and so much life.  He was always the life of the party and respected by all.  All our friends and family came to him for his advice.  I never understood just why he loved me so much but I knew I was a lucky girl because he did:)  I will never get over not having him in my daily life.  I can only hope to try to be happy until we meet again.
