Dear Sharon..........Like Debbie, I lost my husband on 2/14/10. We were married 46 years and he was the love of my life. The pain is actually physical. I know what you mean about a big, empty house. I carry his picture from room to room throughout the day, and I sleep with it at night. I have never been alone either. We did everything together...doctor appts., food shopping, etc. I know how much you are hurting. Will it get better? I hope so, but I don't know either. All I know is that I have been through some very painful situations in the past that I wasn't sure I would ever survive, but I did, and each one of them made me stronger. Those survivals make me, at least hopeful, that things will get better this time also. When??? That's another question.........My grandson brought me these words of wisdom. I hope it gives some hope........jan

I lost my husband of 15 yrs on March 26th,2010. I am alone at 61 yrs old and disabled. I never knew what living alone would be like, I too am struggling without his presence everyday. I always wanted to die before him but the choice was up to God, Instead I want to celebrate his life and know he was a special person and won't be forgotten. Just know you are not alone, you have the memories and don't feel bad when you need to cry because it will make you stronger. Take care my friend, smile, dream, and hold on to those memories they are yours and yours alone God Bless
