My husband was a painter.....LOL! And he was cute! Right now I need a contractor to do some renovations. Single, 60-70 years old, must have a sense of humor.

Like Tom, it would be nice to have a "friend". I did not seek Bo out, he was brought to me by fate. If I'm lucky, fate will be kind to me again.

I just past the 1 year mark, March 16th, of losing my husband, Tom. There are no miracle words of wisdom that anyone can offer to make it any easier for you to bear. The only thing we can really say about it is that you made actally survived a whole year. Keep doing exactly what you are doing...carrying on her legacy. Don't let the world forget her and how much she means to you. I feel like everything I do I do to honor Tom and all that he was and will continue to be.
I wish you peace and comfort in the coming days. I hope the memories bring more smiles than tears. Hang on tight to everything you two meant to each other, that will carry you through.
Marlena (and Tom)
Always and Forever

In eight days my wife has been gone a year. The sadness and lonliness and not wanting to live on will always be there. After44 years with my "pal" I am alone. I will carry on the best I can to maintain that her legacy live on and never be forgotten. My life is no life now.

My husband of 60 years passed away last May 23 and I still miss him terribly. He was sick for several years with COPD, along with some other things. I am glad he is not suffering any longer but I still miss him so much. This Tuesday was his 79th birthday and I went to the cemetery and put one red rose in his vase, along with the blue flowers I had taken earlier. I talked to him for a little while, cried a little while and then left. I know he did not hear me but it was good to say the things I said. I am so lonely I can't stand it. I don't want to die but I can't stand to live. I can't do the things I used to do because of my advancing age and disability. I never dreamed it would be so hard to carry on.
