My wife was an avid reader too, especially Stephen King. She would tell, "leave me alone,I have read the same paragraph 4 times". So she bought me a computer. Trouble is, she liked the computer too. Just wanted to share this.

I talk to Bo all the like he was there with me. I discuss the day, the children, tell him where I'm going and if he would please watch over our sick pup while I'm gone. He gets my first good morning, I love you and my last goodnight, I love you.

I went to my parents house tonight to celebrate their 61st anniversary. It was also my aunt and uncles 68th anniversary. Now that is a real task!!! My problem is that when I got home and was alone again, I started feeling this horribly lost feeling. I will never have a 37th anniversary let alone a 61st. I don't feel jealous as I would NEVER begrudge anyone such a beautiful event. I'm not sure what it is. Maybe I feel cheated. All I know is the pain is unbearable right now.
A message to my love:
And honey, I miss you, and I'm being good
And I'd love to be with you, if only I could.

Tom, I talk to myself all the time. It is the best way to avoid an argument. I never disagree with myself. Sometimes it can make for good conversation. And you know, now with cell phones and blue tooth devices, no one can really be sure whether you are talking to yourself or on a cell phone.

Was jarred awake in the middle of the night last night!
I had a dream so real! It was my Phill.( he left on 9/5/09) I have had him in my dreams before, but this was so different! He was alive and asking why there was "rush" written on his cremation paper!(wasn't, of course in reality). I remember freaking out and crying in his arms over the fact that all his clothes had been given to a mens homeless shelter. I also remember thinking, I could get back the things of his that I gave to the kids and gkids to remember him by( his watch, rings,etc.. I can't remember what, if anything happened after that. I know it was just a dream, but so real at the time.
I try everyday, but this pain is so deep. I miss him so much. I pray everyday for the strength to go on as I pray for all of you, also.

Dixie you are right, we could talk all day about what others who are not experincing the lost we are, what we should be doing and how long we should grieve, they have no idea what it's like until they walk in our shoes. Virginia
