I'm doing better then I was months ago but I'm still lonely and sad at times I have 2 jobs and my son to distract me from time to time and if it wasn't for my best friend I'd serious be lost she kind of pulls me back down to earth so to speak. I've been seeing a therapist just to clear my head and I've joined a grief counseling group that starts in a few weeks really excited about that. My son is doing well and when we get to the question of dada I just tell him he always with us and always watching. when you as him where he is he will point up to the sky and clouds because said he's up there making pretty colors and shapes in the clouds for us. I really didn't know how to explain so he would know but I think I did Ok with that part. I just taking it one day at a time and seeing what happens.

Hi Stacey,  Oh my gosh, I thought I had it bad, I can't imagine what you are going through.   I'm so sorry.   I would have really lost it if my husband was that young.  You inspire me.

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" .
