My husband collapsed and died 5th August 2010. We were on holiday in a cottage in Yorkshire - no help. The autopsy confirmed a catastrophic rupture of an aortic aneurysm - there were no warnings and he was in good health (we though). They say he would have died instantly and even if they had had him in intensive care they could not have saved him. He was, quite simply, my life and we were together 24 h/24. I cannot get over it and just wish to be with him. I pray there is an afterlife where we will be together always. He had a family history (we found out afterwards) and should have been scanned from the age of 60 when we might have saved him. Please someone tell me how I can ever live without him. The only consolation is that I am 72 and cannot live that much longer (I hope). I totally empathise with anyone who feels as I do - the platitudes about time healing etc, are just that, platitudes. Life is never the same without your soul mate and you never get over seeing you beloved husband/wife drop dead at your feet with no warning. The pain in your heart remains contstant and never goes away.
