Hi my name is Michelle and I lost my girlfriend Esther Gonzales to Cervical Cancer in November of 2011. I still have a hard time when I miss her. I think of her, I dream of her all the time. She spent the last week of her life away from me. Her mom took her away from me because in Oklahoma they did not honor the same sex common law system. She chose to leave wih her family. That's what hurt the most. To this day I still cry about that being her decision. We promised each other forever. Can someone help me with closure...cause this wound that is still open and hurts like heck is still very much open.

Bernadette: Welcome to the group! I've been on this site since 2012 when my partner of 28+ years passed from aortic dissection Type III; an inoperable heart condition that she might have had her whole life. Since then, a lot has happened when I thought life wouldn't go on. After her lost, I had to deal with Alzheimer's with both my parents who died respectively in 2014 & this year. But, I also found a new partner with whom to spend my retirement years. She, too, had a partner who passed way too early. Just take everything slowly; one day at a time. Your love for your partner will never end as you hold they key to remembrance. Nanc

I am so sorry for all who have lost those they love.  My husband John died in December 2014.  We were together for 24 happy years and married last summer in a beautiful non-religious ceremony in our garden.  He battled stage 4 lung cancer for almost two years to stay with me. He was brave and caring to the end.  I miss him so much.  I'm embracing my grief and using his strength to help me survive.

Hi, my name is John.  I lost my dear partner of 29 years, Jim, 25 months ago.  Jim died of CHF after spending 19 weeks in the hospital and 3 months at home under Hospice care.  I miss him every minute of every day.  We were both retired and so enjoyed our time together after all the years of working.  Then he became ill and everything stopped.  I am able to do my day-to-day activities but find it extremely hard to eat alone.  If it isn't in a box I don't eat it anymore.  We moved here (Nashville area) after living in Florida for decades and we never made gay friends here, and I feel like I am on Mars.  I am just at a loss as to how to go on, but I have a great desire to do so and I know Jim would want me to be active and as happy as possible.  Would love some feedback and support to alleviate feeling scared and stuck.  I am so very lost in this world right now.
