Wow Barb, you took the words right out of my mouth. I think doing something that you both enjoyed on your anniversary would be a great way to celebrate the love you had together Basia. Barb is right, the anticipation is sometimes worse than the actual event.
My husband died May 1, our Anniversary was May 4, three days later. Of course I was numb, and hadn't even buried my husband yet which I did on May 6. My 27 years old son, sent me white roses on my Anniversary which is what my husband always sent me. Of course I cried my eyes out, but the touching jesture will never be forgotten. When I thanked my son, he said, " Your welcome Mom, I am the man of the family now that Dad is gone."
Hi Basia, My husband passed away on august 31, 2010 and our anniversary fell on sunday Sept 12, 2010*which is also grandparents day, so after I returned spending the day with my grandchildren, I came home and found a dozen red rosed with a card by my front door*it hit me so hard, I almost thought he had come back*this was this little hope *silly me*my step daughter had come by and left it, I took two roses to the graveside and put my music on and then had a healthy cry.
