I am truly sorry for your loss. You are still in he very early stages of grief. In my experience the first few months were absolutely unbearable. Hang in there!
Sending you thoughts of solace and peace.

"When July approaches I find myself to be more restless and despondent than usual, because July is the last month leading up to Joseph’s death on August 4th. It will be four years this year that the love of my life took his last breath,…"
What a deeply insightful quote you put here about grief! I think all of us here on this forum can relate to it: grief is love that has nowhere to go. I will always remember this--evert time my eyes tear up, every time there is a hollow…"
This is a belated wish for you for what would have been your 35th anniversary with Larry on Friday. It's wonderful beyond words that Larry sent you "Claire de Lune" over the radio as your anniversary gift! I can only…"
"Dear Mary Jane,

Sending you healing vibes and thoughts on what would have been your 38th anniversary with Rose. It's wonderful that Rose played a prank on you to let you know that she was visiting you on this special day. I am sure it brought a…"
I totally agree with Marsha that very little is known about what happens to us--our souls and spirits--after we die. Therefore, when people shrug off when they hear that a bereaved spouse, or parent, or child has received a sign from the…"
"Dear Steve, Marsha, Charles, and Chicago Beard,
Thank you so very much for these words of encouragement; it really means a lot to me! Especially coming from an artist--Chuck. Legacy is such a wonderful site, everybody is so good about helping other…"
You are giving me too much credit calling me an artist! I am just an amateur and a beginner. I missed Alaska and Joseph and my life together there that I wanted to paint Alaska landscapes as a way to comfort myself. Here are a couple of…"
How nice to receive your friend request! I'm still getting used to the fact that we can do that with other members - I'm just not well-versed in "cyber-communication" I guess! My email address is : firstname.lastname@example.org
I tend to be like you and only check Legacy when I see certain names, but I check my email much more regularly. You are one of the people I always read because so much of our communication has been so healing for me, and I hope it has been also for you.
Dear Trina ... My email address is: Maday1@shaw.ca
No pressure if you don't want to email me, but hope to hear from you. I do care how your life is going and I am so very proud of how you are taking charge of your life as best you can. Joseph is watching over you.
I hear you Trina, these whole year has been surreal, I look at the place where Pablo used to sit & still can't believe he is no longer here with me, I miss him more & more everyday, I can't stop crying, I feel the same way, why couldn't I have left with him, I want to be with him again but then I think that it would be devastating for my sons & sister & now my first grandson, it would be too hard for my sons to also lose their mother after having lost their father, never in a million years did I envisioned my life without him, I always thought that we would grow old together & now that both my boys were married, we had started to enjoy going on vacations more often, now to never be again, I simply don't know how to live without him, I also feel guilty because too many things were left unsaid because I thought I had more time to tell him, I sure hope he can listen to my words & hear what my heart feels, sorry for my rambling on & on, having a pretty bad day & not looking forward to tomorrow or the next few months for the matter, I sure hope we can all find some peace at one point in our lives.
Sorry for your loss Trina, this was also my first Christmas without my husband, he's been gone for 10 months, my first holiday without him was just 5 days after his death, it was Valentine's day, I know exactly your feelings, we all here do, one way or another, sorry you had to come to this forum but it has helped me a lot knowing I am not crazy & that I still cry every single day since he died, I had to also go thru what would have been our 34th wedding anniversary in October, & next month, both our birthdays with his anniversary death on February 9th, I wish you some peace & send you some hugs, we all need them.
