SHERRY IT'S VERY SAD TO HEAR.I KNOW THATS IT IS. I LOST HENRY LAST NOVEMBER 5TH AND SEEM'S LIKE YESTERDAY. TRUST ME YOU WILL GET THROUGH THIS BY THE GRACE OF GOD.YOU STILL HAVE YOUR LIFE AND MUST CONTINUE ON BUT IT'S NOT EASY. I PACKED UP AND MOVED TO ANOTHER STATE TO BE CLOSER TO MY DAUGHTER. BECAUSE I LOST MY SON THE SAME YEAR AS MY HUSBAND

Hi I am new here, wondering how to go on without my husband. its been 2 months, we were newlyweds, only married 4 months and 2 days, this was supposed to be our time together, kids are all grown up, we found each other and got engaged on christmas, married in march, he died july 28, how can a year that started out so happily turn into the worst of my life

To those who have had to sell their husband's tools, cars, etc; I know exactly how you feel. Felt the same way when I had to sell his carpet installation equipment (he'd done that for a living years ago; in past 10 yrs only for friends or family) & especially his 76 vette stingray. I couldn't drive it, and the guy who bought it was so excited. Had some damage from Kevin hitting a parked car to avoid a child; but the guy who bought it had been looking for a classic to fix up. I know he will love the car as much as Kevin did. Our husbands would want us to do whatever we can to survive, including getting some $ from their things we can't use. It hurts, but it has to be.

David, thanks for the words of encouragement. I do know that God is always with each of us and I ask him for strength each and every day.
It helps to know that there will be light ahead and not just this terrible darkness that I am in right now. Hugs to all.

Kay, Like you because Waymon died so suddenly we didn't have time to discuss what to do with all his "stuff". I have not even been able to think about that yet but I know I will need to sometime soon. I know what you mean it is just stuff but it was his "stuff" and he never liked to part with his things. I just don't think I can tackle that yet. I also wish he could give me some kind of sign to let me know if he approves of what I am doing. Thanks for listening and hugs and prayers to all.

to everyone it's been almost exactly 6 months since death of my wife and while i am still loss i see light not darkness ahead . so if there is hope for me then there is hope for everyone . what is working for me is making major changes in my life forcing me to look forward not backwards and asking God for help during my darkest moments . simple and easier said that done but it's working .
peace to all

Hi All, It looks like we are loosing a new member Deborah Benoit, says she is leaving because she thought she would have gotten more responses to her discussion above and for that i'm sorry, maybe the best way to introduce yourself to a new sit is on the main posting board first , then do a discussion. I think it is hard to respond when we don't know how to respond or what to say but, I am guilty of this myself and for that i'm sorry we are all hurting bad but maybe we need to try a little harder for the new ones as well as them for us, just my thoughts hugs to all
