APRIL 29,2018 MY LIFE WAS CHANGED FOREVER. WE WERE TOGETHER FOR 50 YEARS, OVER 47 YEARS AS MAN AND WIFE. OVER THE YEARS WE HAD MANY SONGS THAT REFLECTED THE LOVE WE SHARED. THIS MORNING I HEARD THE SONG LADY GAGA SINGS IN A STAR IS BORN AND IT SUMMARIZES MY FEELINGS SO PERFECTLY. I HAD WHAT MANY HOPE FOR IF ONLY FOR A MOMENT. WE HAD SOMETHING THAT WAS SO SPECIAL AND JUST FOR US. SO AS I LISTEN MY TEARS ARE MINGLED WITH MY SMILE BECAUSE I KNOW THAT ONE DAY WE WILL BE REUNITED. UNTIL THEN

I'LL NEVER LOVE AGAIN.

Really sorry about your loss, Diva70. You haven’t even reached the one year mark yet, going through all the holidays and special day “firsts”. This is a difficult time for you right now, I can understand it. I hope you are getting the support you need and will continue to post here often. I understand also about the music as my life has always revolved around music. Problem is, when two lives become so entwined, there will be a connection to almost everything and that is hard. I had the biggest issue with pictures, something that took me a few years to deal with.

Wanted to draw your attention to one of the forum posts about this man that took a little trip into PA.  He found a tombstone with a very intersting inscription. I hope you read it.  How fortunate you were to have a good marriage that lasted 50 years!  In time, I believe  those memories will become less sad and more precious. It takes time but in the meantime, be good to yourself.

Diva.   lol   believe it or not...just a few  years  ago  someone  (not here)  called me out on the  all CAPS   too.   I am  ancient history   in using my computer  and have  learned  by error  and trial  and many  choice  words  and a few   tears  when I can't figure things out.   lol  I too was married  44 yr+.  2012  my husband  died  unexpectedly...not only  would I not marry again  but frankly it's because  I would  not settle for less  and  I'd  expect more   than I have   to offer.  It does  truly  get  lonely  and I miss the sweetness  of loving and being loved...but  the sacrifice, compromise  and   expectations  are not what I want or need being over 70  now.  It has not gotten  easier  it just changed for  me.   Life  gets very  limited  as we grow  older  and our abilities   lessen bit by bit...   LOL  you can find  reading glasses  at the dollar   store  for a buck  if  lower case  letters   are too small for you to read easily...LOL   love your  hat....remember  when  being  a lady  was   the norm ?.now  it's  hard to decide  what's  what out there.....If you find some very special person  and find  love again,  it's  allowed  without  explanation  by the way.  wink  wink......Godspeed    lj

laurajay….lol...my age is showing....I did not know all caps implied shouting. Sometimes I just use caps because I have a vision problem and I can see the words more clearly...lol...in the future I will remember not to use all caps. I really meant it in a sweet, sentimental way. I have some friends who are in their 60s and 70s who would love to get married again. But I have always said I would only marry once and I was blessed to have that someone find me when I was 20 years old and over the last 50 years my love only grew stronger. I go to Griefshare and that has really helped me start healing. Thank you for the heads up and I wish you well in the coming year.

Diva....all  CAPS  indicates   SHOUTING  when  posting....maybe  next time  you could  not  shout  it out...even if your heart  is broken.  We understand  but  I for one  do not  read   SHOUTING  posts.   Hope you are healing  sooner  than

  later...
