This might be a rough time for many of you. Do what you feel you need to do to get through it. Remember, someone is here almost all the time to talk to you.

Sending you great love, support and prayers to you today!
Hugs for you,
Marsha......I hope these new "young" friends will help fill the void in your life. Age is just a number, it's really how you feel that matters. You're probably more compatible with 50 yr olds than 70 yr olds with all that energy you have. I hope you enjoy your night out.
Thank you all for your kind thoughts. The outpouring of support is what does make the day tolerable. I'm actually at work today because I have too much going on here to take the day off. I'll go to dinner tonight with friends.
Gretchen......I know today is the 2 year anniversary of Paul's passing. I'm thinking of you and Ethan as you navigate your own sad day.
Corey......I wish I could say it's gotten easier but it hasn't really, at least not by much. I've come to accept it because, what choice do I have? If I could wish him back to me, he would have been back a minute after he left. I think seeing a therapist is a good idea. You need an outlet for the anger you feel.
Harold.....It's funny, Ken and I were a blind date too. And pretty much the same as you and Diane, as soon as we met we were connected. It was just so easy. That's definitely the sign of a soul mate.
Dear Sara and Gretchen, I know how very difficult this day is for both of you. I got through my 1 year anniversary 4 years ago on Aug.1, it was also our 26th wedding anniversary. Such a sad bittersweet day. Rich died on our 25th wedding anniversary. He hung on for 33 days in Hospice. I think for sure he was waiting so we could say we made it to 25 years. But I am also here to tell you two and Corey that it will get easier to handle with time. It will be 5 years this year for me. I miss Rich every single day of my life, but the extreme heart break is not as intense. It will always be there, but I guess you learn to cope with the pain and loneliness. I wish you all comfort during your journey.
Dear Sara, Please take special care of you today. You have reached the one year mark and it can be an extremely difficult day. The song that Ken wrote for you is so beautiful. Thanks for sharing it here. Debbie
I have been reading all your posts as you approach your one year anniversary of losing your beloved beautiful Diane. I just want to tell you that I understand your feelings of anger, and everything you have described about how Diane's love made you feel better about yourself is so deeply moving to me because that is how I felt when I met Larry.
I have seen over the past year such strength and compassion displayed in all you have shared here. Very quickly you reached out to even newer family members, and I have been so proud of the way you have supported everyone, most definitely including myself many times.
Diane was indeed a blessing in your life, as you were in hers - I believe she is near you every moment silently guiding and protecting you.
Wishing you a peaceful day and weekend -
I hope your weather out there does allow you to have some peaceful time by the lake with Ethan - the picture in my mind of you strolling together is one of great beauty even with it's sadness in your longing for Paul. My thoughts and prayers travel across the country to you both today -
The verse from the song Ken wrote you is so very beautiful that it brought tears to my eyes. Nothing could ever possibly take the place of such a perfectly matched soul mate for you. I am sending my prayers and love today, and know Ken will help you through today - he watches and protects you every minute.
