I am so lonely

Posted on July 13, 2010 at 8:20am 7 Comments

My Brad passed away on August 5, 2009. It was very sudden, he left to go to the store and the minute he left our subdivision (35 seconds later) he suffered cardiac arrest and was gone. I heard sirens and had a sick feeling in my stomach for a few seconds and then my neighbor came over to ask if Brad was home, I said no but he would be right back, thinking she needed help with something as Brad helped everyone out. She had a funny look on her face and said there was an accident and there was a… Continue

Dear BC,

 

Thank you for accepting me as a friend.

 

Yours was such a traumatic experience and so sudden.  As months go by friends go on living their lives and we are left with so many little memories of things our husbands did for us that bring it all back and it is a very lonely feeling.So many things I did not realize I would miss so much.  When I would read and fall asleep, he would take my book and my glasses and put them away. Every day I remember so much that I miss about him. His smile and laugh was so

contagious that during a tour of a castle, the tour guide stopped everything and

spoke to my husband about his wonderful smile. He made his long illness bearable beause he joked, smiled and laughed every day. He was heartbroken when he had to retire at barely 46, but he managed to not take it out on me or

his family. With many surgeries and three defibrillators he lived many more years. Surgeons told us he was amazing, and he was.  I am sure your husband

was just as dear.

GW

 

My husband died on April 2, 2010.  His death has not gotten easier.

Barb, Thank you so much for the post on my page. It truly means a great deal to me. I am forever grateful to have read and copied the poem you posted. That truly touched my heart. I JUST received a call from the funeral home telling me Doug's "REMAINS" are ready to be picked up. I have never cried before at the thought of Doug coming home but this is just so OBSCURE to me.
Thanks for listening and being here. HUGS.
