My husband passed away on March 7, 2009, so it is coming up on a year now next month. Yesterday, it was a hard Valentine's Day without him, he would always get me red roses, and I buy him a gift. I miss him very much, just wish he were with me.

Valentines day is gonna be sad because my husband used to give our daughter one of those big Valentines Baskets every year. And now he's not there to give her one. She was the apple of his eye. He truley adored her with all his heart.

Seeing that tomorrow is Valentine's Day...I thought these words were appropriate for us...
Love begins with a smile,
Grows with a kiss,
And ends with a teardrop....

I may mention that I was not able to have children, as I had a surgery that saved my life in 1997.

Real happy to find this site, I lost my beloved Dennis Paul on 1-14-10, dead in the bed from a heart attack at age 51. Tomorrow would have been our Wedding Anniversary.

My husband and I had a very unique love story. It's so unique that I haven't even heard of a similar one in movies or anywhere else. We got married in August 23, 2009. We decided to expand our family so we mutually agreed to have more kids right away. We bought a house together, van, etc. On our way, getting ready, to live a loving, healthy and happy family life together. January 14, 2010, I waited for him outside the building of my work because he was supposed to pick me up. He always did. I even complained what's the point of having my own license if I can't drive. He never came so I had my mom picked me up from work and dropped me home. I got inside our home and my husband was in the stairs lifeless. He died from heart attack. He was only 39 years old. I felt so confused, shocked, hurt. He was full of life. He was the humurous type, the trouble maker, the annoying kind. I thought I'm open-minded than most and that I've accepted his death. I thought I understood why he had to go. I thought there are reasons why he had to go. But yesterday I had another breakdown at work. It doesn't help that my hormones from pregnancy are all over the place either. I'm having another sleepless night. I don't cry as much anymore but I keep having those "unconscious state", just staring at the horizon, blank mind, numb feelings. I had to keep reminding myself that I need to take care of myself especially for his unborn daughter. I received nasty text messages from one his friend. Accusing me of not loving my husband and I was the cause of his death, etc. It bothered me for a minute then that numbness feeling took over again. It's like no negative words that anyone would say could wake me up from this dream. I came home that day before 3pm and found him dead. I talked to him at 12noon from work during my break. He was as funny and as lively as he always was. Telling me to come home because he made chili for me. He knew I dislike chili and yet he was so proud of his cooking. We said I love you and see you soon to each other, like we always do. I think it's too soon that's why I still feel so lost. I'm just scared that it would hit me one day when I least expect it and break me down. I pray everyday and ask my husband too for more strength. I'm looking forward to seeing his baby face to face in June. He's coming back. At least half of him is.
