Note to self 2

Frankie, you should be used to making coffee in the morning.  It is a minor thing and he did it so well.  He would laugh today and remind you to not forget to put the grounds in.  He knew you had brain fog in the mornings.  He is hugging you from heaven with a twinkle in his eyes.See More

"It for sure is work.  I plan how to tackle each day and allow myself space to cry, just never know when.  Someone once said tears are liquid love.  If mine could be recycled, many deserts would have oceans. :]"

Huggy Bear

My husband's health notably got worse after a stroke about a year ago.  Although his life was spared for a while, it was obvious to both of us - although not discussed much - that he probably would not out-live me.  I had dealt with being a widow before.  He had been a widow and one day we came up with the idea of Huggy.  Near Valentine's day he bought me a huge stuffed Monkey and we named it Huggy.  Frequently he or I would hug the monkey.  The monkey was to collect all hugs and return them to…See More

Doing It My Way

     Second time around, just as painful, but maybe more hopefull.  I have past the third month and have not quite shelved my grief, tears come frequently and I still find it hard to talk much about him.  Went to a local festival yesterday and missed holding his hand.     I have kept busy.  Over the  spring break I actually read and enjoyed a book, The Dutch Wife.    Met a talking bird at the restaurant my grandson works at.  I visit him frequently so we can whistle together - me the introvert…See More

Dear Frankie, Remember to put on your muscle rub cream  before you cry in the morning.  Wash your hands before you drop those tears and touch your eyes.  Well, it did refocus your thoughts.

I hope our site brings you solace Frances. Frances was my Grandmother's name, a very loved woman.

You're Welcome Frances.  It had to be a shock to experience your husbands demise.  Frances, I understand what you're saying about losing someone you love being tough. I lost my first husband many years ago when I divorced him. In fact I learned a couple years ago that he passed just 5 weeks after our son. Unfortunately, I didn't go back to my job that was good; instead got a job closer to where I lived. My son Joe was 2 years old and I put him in a nursery. It was at the new job that I met my present husband Bill. He adopted Joe and he wanted to do that well before we got married. Long story I won't go into. 

You have experienced a loss of a beloved partner twice and with you coming on Legacy 3 months after your second husband's loss that in itself just shows you how strong you really are. We can do things we may never have thought possible. The reason is because woman by nature are surviors. We have hope and love for life and others in our life. You need to just take one step at a time and do your best then if you believe in God he will do the rest! Always believe in yourself as I feel you have done by taking your very first step here in a very short amount of time. I'm glad that you responded to my post because now you have gotten more comfortable. 

There is a group that you can join on Legacy for 'Loss of a Spouse' however, you can always post on the latest conversation if you want to do that. People do that from other groups here. At one time the group I'm in was very active now there is David, Melinda and some others that come on infrequently as compared to previous years. If you want to talk to me again just click on my name and I'll respond. I like to type and communicate with people. Look forward to talking with you real soon and I'll respond when I check out Legacy. Take good care of yourself because you are important. Believe in yourself by having faith and always have hope for each day.

Bye bye for now.

Hi Frances,

My name is Barbara Rieger and I lost my only child my favorite son Joe. I am a member of 'Loss of a Child.' It was on April 5, 2010 nine years ago that 2 policemen came to my front door at 8am and asked to come in. I stood there looking at them and said "This is not good." When my husband came to the family room the police asked us to sit down. And then told us that our son passed. It was a shock.  Frances, you wrote that you feel lost and I'm wondering who it is in your life that you love and feel the absence of the one person that is causing you to feel lost? I will respond to you when I have a chance either Tuesday or Wednesday. Looking forward to having a conversation with you on your comment wall. Bye for now.

Barbara

Melinda Guinn lost a 30-year old daughter, and is always willing to chat.

Hi Frances, there are a few ways to chat on this site. Some work better than others. Like I think you will rarely get anyone replying on the 'Main Room'!

I lost my 45-year old son in 2011. Who did you lose? For sure there will be someone closer to your loss. Persevere and you shall find!

I wish you strength, courage and peace.

David, Bernie's dad.
