I'm new to this group.   In fact, I'm kind of new to the whole new world of being a widow.   My husband and best friend died on August 22, 2013 from a sudden heart attack in my arms.   We were married for 23 years but best friends since I met him 27 years ago.   He was only 44.   He left behind not only me but our two sons (17 and 11).    Some days are worse than others.   I'm basically lost without him.    I guess I just wanted to introduce myself.  Thanks for reading.

So I have my brothers wedding coming up. I am in the wedding. Bobby was standing up too. To honor Bobby the are using the ribbons from the funeral in our flowers. I think it is very sweet, but it's also I reminder. This is the first big event that is happening since he's been gone. I'm really nervous about keeping it together for the wedding. Now I have to walk in with the brides father because he's not with anyone. I know it's her day and I'll do what ever she wants,but I feel like that just going to make it more obvious that I'm alone. I just really want the focus to be on them and their day. I'm not trying to say that I'm bigger than the wedding by any means, but I just pray that I don't mess up their day.

Hi my name is veronica, i recently just lost my fiancee on the 7 th of may , 2011. He is my world and i miss him a whole lot and love him more than life. Two months ago we both got right with the lord. He got baptized about 5 weeks ago and i did a week later. We were together just a little shy of two years, but it was the strongest two years of my life. I have never felt this much pain in my life, he is my soul mate. We were the same age , his birthday was on the 17th of may. His mother had a memorial birthday for him and said that i was not invited so no one let me know where it was. I had him a birthday at my moms on the 16th. I did have a seperate memorial for him at our church, i invited everyone even his mother and his daughter who made it a very difficult time. On that day of his memorial his mother had called the family and told them not to go, some listened and some didnt. It was a beautiful service. My daughter in law had taken a picture of my son and his baby and in the background guess who showed up in the picture, ten feet tall? Yes it was my husbands image. Look me up on face book and look on my wall. Veronica minjarez. It was so awesome that he showed up. My world has bwen torn upside down. After seeing that image i feel more happy to know that atleast in my heart he is still here. I love you my boo boo and miss you very much.

my husband, 38 recently passed away from a heart attack; we just returned from a wonderful family vacation. We were gone for three weeks; during the Holiday Season. Returned Jan 4 and he passed not even 12 hours later. we have four children...I'm having a tough time wondering if I'm doing this right! I plan on getting a tattoo of his name on my ankle with a lei around my an "Anklet" .

noel- im not sure what to say a couple people in the other groups are or did get tattoos to remember them im going to when i get the money i already have his name on my hip now i want to finish it. i also made a wall of pictures with my husband in them and of our family. im not really sure how to get closure as we are still young but i hear with time it will get easier to get through the day without them physically there. not sure your beliefs but i know my husband will never leave my side and help me with all these important decisions i will have to make in the future. you will never forget him and hes watching over you and keeping you safe. i keep myself busy with my son and work and one friend that has been there for me since he died, and throughout my relationship with him. i really would not be anywhere if it wasnt for this website either. take one day at a time get through one day or even go by hours you dont need to rush getting over this greif has no time frame. and dont let anyone tell you different you take as long as you need.

I'm 27 years old and just lost my husband to a sudden heart infection. We had just gotten the all clear from the doctor the day before he passed away. He was in the hospital for a week in December with what they thought was a staph infection. After being on IV antibiotics for 4 weeks we went and saw an infectious disease specialist who ran more tests and told us the infection had cleared up then a day later he passed. We had been together for 12 years and had been married for almost 6 years. We have two beautiful children age 4 and 8 months old. We were in the process of buying our dream home and now I feel like I can't do it without him. I have never been without him and thought we would have our whole life together and watch our kids grow. Now it's difficult to look into the future without him.

I am 30 and just lost my husband of 6 years on July 30. We had a long battle with cancer that started while I was 5 months pregnant with our now 14 month old son. All my husband wanted in life was to be a stay at home Da. He was given this opportunity for all of 7 months before he became too ill. It is so hard to not be angry to see a man who never drank or smoked a day in his life loose the battle to stomach cancer! Now I am a single mother to a son who will never know his amazing Da. Looking for some help from those who understand what it is like to live a lifetime of pain and hurt by the age of 30.
