hi denise,

i thank you so much for all the wonderful and kind words you have offered to me. and i only knew jim 2-1/2 years. 40 years. wow! i know now, at 45, that is something i will never experience. i have always been envious of those who have had a long term love like that.

i lost my first love, at 18, 27 years ago, due to a motorcycle accident. he died after 9 days on life support. i then married an abusive maniac, left him after 10 years, and raised/supported my 2 kids completely on my own for the last 14. i met jim, and he, in my 17-year-old daughters words, was 'more of a father to me than my dad will ever be'.

lucky, i have been told to fall so completely in love twice (jims mom tells me this), even though it was short lived, for some never find something that special in a lifetime. i am not so sure. what a dream it would have been to experience what you and your husband did.

God Bless You,

katy

Hi Denise,yea I lost my hiusband to bile duct cancer he lasted 2 1/2 yrs after being diagnosed and we were together 39 yrs. I know how u feel, sometimes I feel I can't and don't want to go on. I have two boys one 27 and he has his own hose the other one is 25 and home with me and I have another boy, family friend living with me and they do help me but I cry every day. Dave past away Dec 09..can't believe he's gone we had so many more things to do. I know everyone says this will pass but I will never forget him....we just have to hang in!

My husband of 32 years also passed away on Oct.20th, 2009.
He had lung cancer and really suffered the last 8 months of his life. It hurt to watch him go through all that he did.
I have no energy or desire to be around people on Christmas.
We had no children together but he had 4 by his first wife. Two of them are not speaking to me at this time so that makes it hard.
I miss him so much!

I also wrote this poem on My husbands facebook...
If I could have on lifetime wish,
One dream that could come true,
I'd ask with all my heart for yesterday and you....

Denise, I saw your poem when I responded to another member's message. I have to tell you, it is so very lovely and precious - a simple, concise way of expressing a profound truth. It really speaks to my condition as well. Thank you for sharing it.
