Boy have I heard some of that...
So sad...but so true.
Is there anything someone "could say" that would be the "right" thing to say? Naw...just a hug or a hand hold...yep, I would prefer that over any of the things I heard.
I was aware that my mate was leaving this earth long before his family was we didn't talk about it ..actions speak louder then words, I felt that i had to ready myself to release him to God and the angels. It still hurt when it did happen i wasn't notified or included in his last days (his way of protecting me), then dealing with his family basically strangers to me was unbearable his niece alone. His niece thinks she needs to know everything about her uncle in the past 15 years that he was with me and i feel that she isn't . He was a veteran and suffered from PTSD and it was rough at times and top that with cancer, i felt i was fighting to wars rolled into one. I have a book of quotes that he gave me from the bible and i turn to that more then i listen t the chaplain and other professionals. I d understand exactly how you feel.
The Quote"wish god would take the ones we want to go" followed by laughter and repeated three times till I got up and left. Husband had died 4 months earlier
every comment that I have read on this site , states the truth! including my girlfriend who had made her mission to set me up with a blind date (her choice in men are not in line with mine) I derail her on this matter every time she brings it up. I know that my soul mate would want me to be happy but, he was my best friend and could read me better then myself. His death blew me over and still does I will not recover anytime soon I miss him more now that I can't talk to him. I wish he was here to hug and hold me I really could use it. Hey he died and left me---his best friend doesn't call and check on me or ask if I need help on any matters I am back to managing for myself. I believe that the nights are longer when you are alone!
