I lost my husband to colon cancer when he was 47. My son was 13 at the time. My husband's cancer was misdiagnosed and very advanced when it was finally diagnosed. He fought very hard to stay alive for almost 4 years. It seemed like there was support from friends when he was first diagnosed, but as the disease consumed him, more people (some life long friends became distant). When he died, I felt some support for the first 6 months, but then nothing. The worst thing for me was that all of my son's life long friends suddenly avoided him. The house used to be full of friends, then NOTHING. I know 13 is an age when friendships change, but I can't help but believe that a lot of the avoidance was because of his friend's discomfort. It is hard to heal, when others won't even let you acknowledge your loss.

Its been five years since my beloved husband died in my arms, why it's bothering me tonight I dont know, its this house i live in, there not a corner in it that my husband hasnt been in, I see all the woodwork items he made for me and i tear up. Just yesterday I saw a couple(seem to be) in there 80's heading into the cancer doctor, both frail but so cute as they held hands although they trembled and I asked why couldnt that be me and my husband? We had 40 good years together and I wouldnt want to go and see a doctor for cancer i just wished I could be holding Don's hand. Goodnight my beloved, Im not sure how soon Ill see you again, you know it's in God's hands..Just missing you tonight, lv>me

I lost my husband in 2007 I'm still grieving life is so hard to go without him I can't drive any more or do much of any thing else life is just so hard. He was only 63 years old and we were only married 4 years. Why does it have to hurt so much?

Loni was a very lucky lady, Tom. We were all so lucky to have been blessed with a great love.

It is night. I hate night time. I miss him most at night. It was our relaxing time together. Have a good dinner, watch some tv, go to bed.......together. I hate the night.

I can see how torn you are, I would be too. It's only been 7 weeks for me. I beg Donnie everyday to give me a sign he is ok. I just want to know he is without pain. My heart is so broken. I feel like I have this giant hole in my chest. One day this has to get a little easier, hasnt happened yet. I want to remember the happy times we had. He was such a practical joker. I think I miss that the most. He could always make me laugh. Loni was such a beautiful woman. I can see you are very proud to be her husband. If one day you are interested in seeing someone, that person will appear just when you least expect it.
