To all, thank you for all your kind words.
I do work full time.
It does not help when I don't have him to talk to , or argue or disagree with . I miss it all not just the good but the bad also.
Thank you all.

I wish there was something to ease your pain. There are no words. It's been 41/2 years for me Richie made it to 1:07 on his birthday. The pain and shock of losing your world. It does get better, tears come further as apart. After all the stages of grief which is at your timeline . It's still hurts like crazy. What helped me was Richie always had to be working on something the house , cars, always went food shopping he had to something. When they took out his colon he would of had to wear bags all day long and he wouldn'tbe able too do what he loved. Everyone here (angels) will help too get through the process. Baby step s. I believe most of the he's with my son and me in some way or another. Keeping you in my prayers.

Georgia, My heart goes out to you on this first anniversary. It was 6 months ago to the day that I kissed my dear one for the last time. Seems the longer it is the more difficulr it becomes--I miss him so terribly. The spirit of his love will always be with me in my heart and as in life, he is still my guide. I hope you are able to find peace knowing he's with you in your heart, too.

Georgia, nothing harder than the anniversaries:( My 4th is coming up and as someone said to me yesterday "I'm sure it feels like yesterday". It does. Every single thing I do I wish with all my breath he was here with me. As Wilela says I too believe he surrounds me so take strength that the spirit of his love is with you.

My husband was 2 weeks shy of his 58th birthday too.

Thank you to all of you who wrote to me when I posted!  Sorry to be so remis in answering but have been spending a lot of time at the cottage which we called Tranquility Base and there's no internet there.  The first night I spent there alone was so incredibly difficult I cried buckets. Tomorrow marks 6 months since my Dino passed away. It still seems impossible that he's gone and I have to live without him by my side.

I am so sorry for all your losses--It breaks my heart for all of you on this forum and hope you all are finding some peace. Love, Deb

Dear Elvira.  I echo Jane P's comments.  We would love to hear how the day went and hoping you have some very sweet memories of the day.  I am sure today you are resting up and well deserved.
