Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss that has brought you here. We all in this family know the pain of having lost our beloved partners, and are always ready to listen to anything you may wish to say, and to offer whatever comfort and support we can. I for now can only welcome you and ask that you be kind and gentle with yourself. Our losses shake us to the core of our beings, and there are so many different ways we may have to find of coping with our grieving. These are things I certainly never wanted to have to learn, but after losing my husband Larry to cancer I was so lost I couldn't think of anything except how much I missed him and wondering how I was ever going to make it. That was three years ago, and my missing him has in no way diminished, nor has my love for him. What has diminished in that time is the crippling pain and fear for my future which enveloped me in the early months of my grief.
I send you prayers and my wish that you find some measure of peace today and in the trying days ahead. There is always someone here whenever you feel like reaching out for a virtual hand to hold as you start this journey. Know that you are not alone, and today I extend my hand to hopefully steady your steps if even only a tiny bit.
