Michelle, I am glad that you know what will most bring you comfort on the anniversary of the loss of your husband. I am so sorry for your loss. You will also be remain my thoughts and prayers. Debbie
Sandfly, You are approaching the anniversary with a great state of mind. I found that the days before the actual date were more difficult for me than the actual anniversary. I spent a lot of time during those days reliving events that occurred the year before. Please choose to do whatever you need to do on the actual day. If you need to grieve and further process your loss, please take the time to do it. I just experienced the second year anniversary of my husband's passing. I and opted to celebrate. I went to one of our old haunts and toasted him with a glass of wine. I then enjoyed a great seafood dinner at a newly opened seafood restaurant that he would have loved.
Please know that I will be thinking of you and sending my strength. Please update about how you choose to spend your day. Debbie
Sandfly, so sorry for your loss. We have a lot in common. My husband also passed in August 2016. I also live alone and have two sisters. He was my soulmate for 34 years, like yours my whole life. I think on his day of passing I will light candles and pray as that gives me some comfort. I hope you can find something to give you comfort and honor his memory.
Hello everyone, I am dreading the first anniversary. My husband died August 2016. Still stunned as I am writing these words. I live alone and have no family nearby, my side of the family all lives in Europe,his two sisters are closer but still quite a trip. David was my whole family for 32 years, we never had children. Have no idea f what to do on this day. A few months ago a brought up the discussion with his sisters about doing something special, I also mentioned it to friends.I have to say no one really said anything much.David did not like fuss but I just want people TO REMEMBER HIM. I have taken the day off work I am so scared I will just fall apart. I don't know what to do.
Mary Jane, It sounds like a great visit! The weather should be pleasant in October and not nearly as hot as it is now. I can't wait to hear all about your adventures. Debbie
Mary Jane....I accepted your friend invite. You can message me with your book suggestions.
Mary Jane, I am so excited for you and your daughter. I hope that you love the outer banks as much as I do. It is a wonderful spot. What town are you staying in? Debbie
