Still in denial

I lost my husband 7 weeks ago last Monday.  Although he had cancer for 3 and 1/2 years, and it was diagnosed from the very start as terminal, I still can't believe he's gone. I watched him die, so I'm surprised it is still so unreal to me. He had a "good" death, if any death could be good. I was there with him, just the two of us, in the house that he built and that was our mutual pride and joy.  I was holding his hand as he breathed his last. I was able to tell him how much I loved him and…

Five ways Facebook changed the way we grieve

A young woman chose to announce her mother’s death on her mom’s Facebook page. She had no other access to her mother’s wide circle of friends and she felt this was the best way to share details for her mother’s funeral. Facebook friends “shared” the funeral plans and the young woman was surprised and…

Writing Down

It's so raw. I keep thinking im strong and of course I am. It's just that he was my life and to put it together without him almost feels wrong. We were so in love with each other. It will just take time. I'm writing down something to do each day, next day and future day. But I did forget to write the next 3 days. I think I will try that.

Soulmate Boyfriend Passed Away

Alex was my life and I was his. He was driving on the way home from work, pulled over to the side of the road and the police said he looked like he was sleeping. People say I'm lucky because I have daily pictures and daily "I love you" but they are all gone and stopped now. I relay his videos to me...the one where he asks "where's my sweetie" and another where he says "I miss you". Every restaurant we went to we would hold hands across the table and talk until the food arrived. Five years of… Continue

Just joined in hope of maybe finding ways of how to cope from the only other people who could possibly know how this feels.  My daughter died 6 months ago and I still cry every day.  I really don't know what to say.

My wife Barbara died this week

Lost the best part of my life when Barb died this week and I am having a tough time adjusting. I know it's early but it seems like an impossible hill to climb. Any advice about how to go on from here. Figured that joining this site might be a good option to help me cope. She was very ill with Cholangial Carcinoma, a form of liver cancer. She actually survived 10 years with the cancer but during the past 4 or 5 months she slowly got worse and worse. Any help that anyone could offer would be…

Why More Widowers Date, Remarry Than Widows

Q. I lost my husband about a year ago, and still am not ready for dating. Yet widowers I know (or have heard about) seem to be interested in a new relationship almost right away. How come?

What happens when a Facebook user dies?

It is unnerving to see Facebook recommend a deceased friend or acquaintance under “Suggestions for People you May Know.” Even creepier to get notified by Facebook to wish a friend happy birthday when your friend has died.

Facebook has processes in place to help you before…

All in Point...

When a love one is taken from us in death, it can shatter ones entire existence. So much of ones self is lost along with it, faith, beliefs, certainty, self-worth. So much so, it can seem as though you've even lost a part of yourself. Becoming lost within the fog, our survival depends on anything that grasps us from the darkness. Anything to bring us back to any source of light. Some can be in darkness for a long time before something finally glimmers its way through the despair.

Grief Knows Where You Live

Grief knows where you live

It arrives unexpected

And doesn’t bother to knock

It likes the element of surprise

Grief knows where you live

It doesn’t wait for an invitation

It shows up at your front door

And lets itself in

Grief knows where you live

It doesn’t call or…

Reflection: I Knew A Man --Who Can Relate

I knew a man who lost 10 children

I knew a man that question God

I knew a man that had false comforters

I knew a man that wife said "Curse God and die"

I knew a man that had a loathsome disease

I new a man that wanted to die

I new a man that could relate.. His name is Job

KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE PRIZE

*** sn song 24 p. 31 Keep Your Eyes on the Prize! ***

Song 24

Keep Your Eyes on the Prize!

(2 Corinthians 4:18)

1. When eyes of blind ones see again

And ears of deaf ones hear again,

When deserts blossom as the rose

And from parched ground fresh water flows,

When lame ones leap just like the hart,

When loved ones never have to part,

Such blessed times you’ll realize,

If you keep your eyes on the prize.

2. When tongues of mute ones speak…

The Grief Wall - Post Your Feelings of Grief and Loss

Those who have lost a loved one understand what grief is. Life comes to a standstill, but only for you. Your friends try to help, but don't know what to say. If they did, it would do little to soothe the ache that is your grief. This loss, you realize, is yours alone.

Sharing a loss with others can be difficult. Our grief…
