I was widowed twice, both of these lovely souls left me on June 11th, 17 years apart. My 1st wife Guyla died at age 45, I was 44, we were together 25 years. Linda ,I had met  a year later ,by chance. She to was widowed. We were together 15 wonderful years, she died at age 68, and I'm 63.They had both told me, not to give up on love, there will be another that will want,and ,or need  you. So ,I'm passing on these  words , Don't give up on love it will find you!

Hi Tod, So sad for both your losses:( I have been there too. My husband before this one died at age 48, we had approx. 28 yrs. together. My husband i just lost this year in Feb. died at age 57. We had a precious 10 yrs. together. I don't really know if i can do this again ever:(  It's just too heartbreaking. None of us would ever of imagined it being alone again when we are still relatively young. It sux.
