Stu, My best friend and the love of my life died July 22, 2004. I never in my wildest dreams thought it would be so hard. The service was on my birthday, July 25th. My sons seemed to cope pretty well and I thought I was too but it seemed that I missed him more as time went by. I can only tell you to take one day at a time and to get involved in as many activities as you can, whether it be Church, clubs etc. Spending time alone just makes you sit around and think and miss them even more.
Dear Stu, Cancer is a thief of the rudest kind. My sweet hubby was taken from me in 5 weeks. That was seven months ago today. I wish I had words to make it better. My sympathies to you and I pray you will find the strength to just keep putting one foot in front of the other. Remember to congratulate yourself when you are able to do that, there will be days when it will be all you can do to get out of bed. Treasure your memories and the love you shared, that cannot be taken from you.
