My husband passed away March 26, 2010. He was my best friend & a great husband & father & we have 4 children. Married 56 years . It is very lonely without him since all my children live out of town. I am alone & i have a hrad time some days thinking of the time we spent together & now he is gone & i am alone. No one knows what it is to loose a mate after over 56 years with them.
My friend dent me this site she found on line & i thought i would try it to see if it would help me since i am alone now.
charolette,My name is Tyresa I'm sorry for your loss.I lost my husband of half your time,26yrs.He died aug24,2010.The pain for me is still new.The loss I feel Is there with every waking moment and even when I go to bed.I can not imagine the bond you two must have formed in those years.Twice what I had.I envy those who had more years together with their spouses.My Joe started his spiral down hill 16 yrs ago.It has been a LONG rollercoster ride with his health issues. I feel cheated in some ways.He was 51,I'm 44.Our kids were small when he got sickly.We just had our twins ,a month later we were told If he had not come into to the dr that day ;he would have been dead.That's when we learned of the diabetes.It's also when our rollercoster ride began and never stopped.I long for some happier times with him.We were so young to be dealing with these issues.When our twins learned to talk ,walk etc.we were hundreds of miles away.In one hospital or another.So for me I'm glad he is not suffering anymore.I wanted so many more years with him.It sounds like you had a good marriage,In this day and age that's saying alot.You and I have alot to be grateful for .We honored our marriage vows.Stood by our spouses.
