Dear Miss Connie, i saw your story.. my condolences for your loss of your husband.... the loss of a spouse can be a different kind of trauma then loosing a friend or relative, i cant tell you i know what your going through... but, id like to comfort you.. there is a very very helpful article entitled "When Someone You Love Dies" it is bible based so it offers assured comfort that you can put faith in :) it helps me and many other.. it discusses how the scriptures can help you cope with anger, grief, and even guilt, a hope for the dead and how to live with grief its very encouraging.

i hope you get a chance to read it... :)

Thank you Connie. I know LouAnn would want me strong. She also knew how I would be if she died first.She was my better half and made me what I was. Without her I am terrible alone, just terrible. This loss sure turns us out to be mush, huh? I know you all are there and I am there too.i'm hanging in there. You do the same. Hugs to you. Hugs are good.

Hi Connie,
I just got your message and I am doing ok for now and it seems like you are too, I hope. We'll just have to take it slow for now and see how things go in the life we are living in now. Such a different one than we had hoped or expected to. I am just glad I have this site to lean on as no one in the outside world, even the widow grief group I attend who have lost their loved ones in years seem to think in time we heal. I know I won't. But I just want you to know I appreciate your thoughfulness. I am remembering you in my thoughts and prayers.
Take care and God bless, I'll keep in touch.

Hi Connie,
Please let me know how it goes at the Dr.'s as I am concerned for you and you are in my prayers every day. I think that all of us here, even though it may not seem so right now, that God is here for us because He placed us together to help us take care of one another. Please don't worry about anything, I and everyone in my opinion has to go with the flow and just do the best we can and take care of ourselves and be there for others. I know this may sound strange coming from someone who is waiting for God to call, but I do still have my Faith which at times I forget and I believe God knows how much pain we are in. You are a very understanding and good friend. I know you are hurting as I am too, just know I am thinking good thoughts about you. I'll keep in touch.
God bless you,
Suzanne

Hi Connie, yes to be young and happy and innocent. We get crushes on so many things.When I met LouAnn it was all over .Love forever.No, we never realize the devistation that are put on people till it really hits home. And boy, what a crushing blow. I know August is all thats on your mind. We all have the special days because our brain is always working. We will be here to help you thru it all. Hugs to you. Hugs are good.

Hi Connie,
I really hope your condition is not serious. I wouldn't want to go through pain like my husband did and wouldn't want to watch anyone I cared about go through it either. I am so sorry you feel the same way as I but I appreciate you letting me know that you understand how I feel. I will keep in touch and remember you in my prayers.
God bless,
Suzanne

Hi Connie,
I guess I'm doing the best I can. It's kind of you to ask. I went to a grief meeting today and it does help somewhat to get my inner thoughts out to others who are understanding but I still know that all I have ever posted remains true. But I still check in here. This really helps me too. I remember you in my thoughts and I am praying for you. Thanks again. I hope you are doing ok too.
God bless,
Suzanne

Thank you so much for your comment. I had never mentioned my rage over this until I saw somone else mention it on this site. My real problem, is I know some of the men have just been real "dogs" to their family and they are still doing just fine. I know life is not always fair in our eyes, looks like they would trip or something!! I worked and had the pleasure of taking care of my husband for two years. Got up every two hours or more at night and would gladly do it again. I know I should not judge how life should be, but I guess the anger is just part of this awful grief that seems to take over my very being. I am trying to do better, and maybe I don't realize how much better I am, but I await the day the anger leaves. My prayers and hugs to all.

Hi Connie, thank you for your thoughtful message.Was married 44 years and a year and a half before that. She was our "rock".She was good at everything but especially at being able to take things, balance them and then put them into perspective.I cant do thatYes, I know there is someone that does depend on us. Isnt it funny how we know all of these things but our grieving is the front runner. Like someone on this site said,by being here you are keeping your spouse's legacy going and no one will forget her, thru you.Yes, young people today and their petty arguments as a couple, its so sad. I cant wait to join my wife either.I'm hanging in there the best I can and I hope you are fairing better in your "new life". Hugs to you. Hugs are good.

Thank you Connie. I should have realized that I do help others on this site and we all learn and share. I am just going thru a bad time,again, even after 17 months. Everyone is dying around me and I am so alone without LouAnn.

Thank you Connie for your message.Things are so messed up that I cant remember who I answered. Got the facebook thing done, the online chat done and the uploading of a photo next to my name. Did it in bits and pieces and here and there. Driving for 3 days on top of this. No wife to help share this. Hugs to you. Hugs are good.

Hi Connie,
Please don't be stressed, although I am really touched by your concern. I just checked my emails so I noticed your message. I went to a widow's meeting today and I have a few things I need to do during the weekend. But I am still here and I am lots better than I was when I was stressed out about my brother. I already turned that over to God and I have much faith to keep me going. And knowing that you and everyone are here helps me a lot too. I remember you in my thoughts and prayers.
Take care,
Suzanne
