"Michael, I am so sorry for the loss of your wife on your son's 18th birthday. I lost my husband on July 22, 2015. I no longer hear from his family. I initiate contact but hear nothing in return. It breaks my heart because we were close enough…"
"Chuck, No wet noodles happening here :). Thanks for inviting me for a toast tonight. It is much appreciated. I have my new favorite beverage (Deer Park Sparkling Water - this one is Raspberry Lime) over ice. It has been a long day and…"
"Chicago Beard, You are in my heart and thoughts on what would have been the 37th anniversary of your marriage to Rose. Diane's words capture our emotions so well. Please take care of you today. Debbie"
"Sara, Thank you dear friend for joining me tonight for a toast. There is a huge void which likely will never be filled in the same way. Yet, I continue to hope that a peace will descend upon us that makes the rest of our life worthwhile and…"
"Chuck, Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts. You always remain in mine and I hope that you are doing well. Thanks too for your wish of peace for today. I do feel more at peace now than when I first posted. I am going to go into my garden and…"
"Mary Jane, Thank you for your sweet reply. It has helped me to read your thoughts.
My husband passed away on July 22, 2015. He was interred at Arlington National Cemetery on July 25, 2016.
In many ways I have felt like I remain frozen. My husband…"
"Steve, Thank you for sharing the words of this amazing song. Reading the words has helped me today. I've read it 3 times and plan to post it where I can read it often.
There are days when it feels as if my heart is so numb that I do…"
"Good morning dear friends, I haven't posted for a while. It isn't that I do not think of each of you daily because you are all on my mind and in my thoughts and prayers. It is because words escape me.
It is Memorial Day. Although my…"
"Sarah, My thoughts and prayers are with you today as they are every day. How will you spend your special day? I join others in believing that our loved ones are still by our side. It is not the same as before by any means. Nothing is the same…"
"I've read with particular interest recent posts about dreams and signs. I dream about my husband every night. It brings me great comfort. I believe that I dream of him so my subconscious can help my conscious self deal with the reality of his…"
"Sweet - that worked!
Please know that each of you remain in my heart and prayers. I agree with everyone who credits this group as being a Godsend. Like others, I stumbled upon this group late one night when searching for a lifeline. I joined and…"
"Good morning friends, I am sorry that I have been MIA. I tried to post again and again it went into cyberspace. I just read Mary Jane's note that posts seem to disappear when not posted on page 1. I'm going to try this now and see what…"
Thank you Deb for asking. I wish I could say it was much better, but not really. I miss her more than ever. I pick roses for her first thing everyday. I touch her things and look at her at her pictures. I do try to keep busy. I stay in touch with our families and friends. I volunteer for mission work. I'm just not happy. It seems nothing can make me happy. I see her everywhere. I miss and love her so much. It still doesn't seem real. After a little more than 7 months, it just doesn't seem real. Don't get me wrong. Even though I'm very sad and cry a lot, thinking of her, touching her things, and even talking to her, gives me some comfort. I wish I would have shown more how much I loved and needed her before. Thanks again Deb. You are kind. Danny
