Hello Linda,

I am truly sorry for your loss. You are still in he very early stages of grief. In my experience the first few months were absolutely unbearable. Hang in there!

Sending you thoughts of solace and peace.

Hugs, Trina

This is how I will always remember Joseph, the love of my life-: a ray of sunshine, happy, smiling, handsome, loving, and kind. Rest in peace, my love until I come to you.

Comment by Linda Price on Saturday 

I have been reading some of the comments and have really been touched. I lost my wonderful husband of 24  years on June 20 this year. He had IPF a fibrotic lung disease which slowly destroyed his breathing ability. The day he passed was strange but he said he was so tired of trying to breathe even with the extra help. He said he felt different. He wanted to make it to his 77th birthday, that was the day he went to the ER in the ambulance. I felt numb those few days before. I was busy helping him and the nurses. Our deacon Bill, prayed all morning Sunday, and then our priest gave him the Annointing of the Sick. He was awake all those days before he passed. He and the family decided to go Care and Comfort with Hospice. We told him we loved him and it was ok to go I would be alright. I was alone with him when I looked over at his face, and he had stopped breathing and was gone. Every day he said he loved me and was sorry I had to work so hard caring for him. I told him I loved him like had never loved anyone. We watched ROKU a lot and had family and friends over talked on the phone.This sharing site has helped me already.

Mary Jane

If you are in Lake Tahoe (one of Rose and mines favorite places) you are a 12 hour drive. Enjoy the wedding and the peacefulness of the lake. Don't lose too much in the casinos.

Dear Marsha, Sara, and DJ,

Thank you so very much for taking the time to reply to me with words of comfort and solace. It's the generosity of spirit of people like you on this site that helps to ease the pain of so many of us who come here looking for empathy and emotional support. It takes a special person to resonate to the pain of others and respond with compassion and understanding.

This forum has been my place of refuge as I know it is for countless many others here. I know I can come here in my darkest hour and find a sympathic soul. So, again, thank you for your friendship and kindness. Prayers for peace and comfort for you too!

Sending all of you here thoughts of peace and solace as each of you battle your personal sorrow, loss, and pain.

Love, Trina
