If there is anyone out there interested in hearing my wife singing,I would be honored with sharing it with you. We were recorded one night singing kareoke on cassette tape. We didnt know at the time. She had a great singing voice. I had the cassette tape converted to a CD and thanks to my daughter and son uploading it into the computer, I can sent it by e-mail. She sings a John Denver song entitled "Annie's Song". It was about 8 years ago in her mid fifties. There is a second song somehow attached to it, so ignor that one. Anyone interested just give your e-mail addy. Hugs to all. Hugs are very good.

On July 5, 2010 my husband of 27 years was suddenly taken from me at the age of 51. I don't know how to handle this. My heart is broken in a million pieces. I feel so alone, even though I have been surrounded by family. He should still be here with me. He is the one who holds me at times like this and tells me it's going to be ok. 6 months earlier he had been hospitalized for chest pain for 3 days. They did all sorts of tests, then said it was acid reflux and sent him home. Now he is gone because of a sudden heart attack due to heart disease. I am broken, angry, sad, confused..... alone.... It has been one nightmare after another. I live daily like a zombie. I go through the motions, do what I know I need to do. We have 5 children and 9 grandchildren. My heart aches for them. To see the pain in their hearts makes it that much harder for me. I know they miss their father/grandfather, but they have no idea what it is like to lose your soul mate... no one does unless they have experienced it. I have faced so much in the past few weeks. Our insurance now saying that it was not in effect, getting money for the funeral, incompetent funeral home... it just never ends. I wish I could just wake up from this nightmare. I keep thinking he will walk through the door. I smell him in the shower, I walk past something and smell his cologne.... The first week all I wanted to do was to look at pictures. Now, it is just too painful. I am feeling all sorts of emotions. When he left, a big part of me left with him. I know I have to carry on, somehow, but I just don't know how to do that.
Rest in Peace my sweet love......

Grief: It was mine to handle in my own way,, there are so many stages to grief, and we all handle it in our way.Well minding people think they should tell us how and when to handle it, I was told at differant stages to move past it and get on with living. It's easy for a person to advise when they have not suffered the loss of a loved one.Since 1988 Ive lost
my step-mom, dad,mother in-law, sister in law. brother, sister, brother in law and husband. All in differant months, all from differant deaths. I handled each death differantly, and in my own way. So for those of you have lost a "loved" one recently I wish you the grace of God or whomever you believe in. Each of us are on a journey through life, our loved ones are loaned to us. Make your grief your own and dont let people tell you how to handle it.
