I am so sorry that we have to be here on this site but am so thankful that we all have found it. I lost my husband on October 21, 2010. He drove an 18 wheeler and had been gone all week, he was 1 1/2 miles from his last delivery of the week and then would be on his way home 90 miles away. He was on a two lane highway. He came around a curve in the road and there was a 74 yr old woman completely in his lane. He hit his brakes and jackknived and she hit him in his fuel tank. The truck exploed, she hit a rock wall and was killed, he then went off the road hitting two oak trees and the truck was covered with the lumber he was hauling. It burned for 3 1/2 hours before the could put out the fire and get my Gene out of the truck or what was left of the truck. I didn't even get to see him or touch him, or tell him good by, I only had a casket to tell good by. I still somedays think he will come home that he is only on the road and hasn't come home yet. It's the only way I get through some days. We will have our second real anniversary on Feb. 29, 2012. He picked out the date, he was so funny he said " this way I'll only be in trouble every four years. " God I wish he was here , I miss him so much I hurt. We didn't have any children together, I have 3 from another marrage buit he never had any. He loved kids so much. My son's wife had 2 little girls and he wouldn't even let me hold them when we went to the hospital he said these are my babies. He was their Papa Gene. We went to the cemetery and the oldest little girl left a little truck on his headstone for him to play with. The younger on left him a duck. He loved children so much he was always do charity work for kids. We started a duck race and all the money rasied goes to The Childrens Hospital of Alabama here in Birmingham. Last year I changed the name of the race to " The Gene Clements Memorial Lucky Ducky Derby" we ( his family and mine) are about to get started raising money and selling ducks again this year for the 2nd annual duck race. I guess that I will go to the cemetery for my anniversary and spend it with Gene there. I to had to go on meds. I have panic attacks. I try to keep myself busy so I don't think so much but he is always on my mind and will always be in my heart forever. He lost his Father when Gene was 13 yrs. old he told me it never gets easier or better you just learn how to deal with it. He was right, somedays I don't deal very well. When I lost him I lost half of myself and don't think I will ever be whole again. I pray for every one on this site to get some peace and comfort. Hugs and prayers to you all.

Thank you for your post. I recently had a close friend that died and I did not even know she had died until about a week later. She was healthy. ( So ,I thought) However, that particular day I heard she started complaining about her heart and then fell into a coma and never woke up.
I constantly think about it... The good thing is I know she is in God's memory..
Looking forward to the time when the pain will go away - Revelation 21:4
