Dear Marsha,

Glad to see you on this forum again. Hope you're doing well and keeping safe. 

What you say is so true! Our beloved spouses are embedded in our heart, and no matter how many years go by, they will forever remain there.

For me, Joseph remains and will remain the shining light that guides me everyday. I feel blessed to have had him in my life for 19 years; I wish it were more like 59 years that we could have spent with each other. But I know, no matter how many years I would have been granted to live my life with him, it would not have been enough.

Stay well and stay healthy, my dear friend! Sending you much love,

Dear Mary,

I, too, talk to my darling Joseph every single day even though it will be 6 and a half years ago on February 4th that he passed. Like Marsha says, it doesn't matter how long ago our soulmate left us physically, they will forever live in our hearts, in our memory, and in spirit they will continue to light our way.

Sending you love and good thoughts as you adjust to your new home. Your Bob is right there with you!

Hugs, Trina

Dear Sara, 

The anniversaries are the hardest to face. Five years, and yet it seems like it was the other day. My heart goes out to you. I hope that it was not too brutal yesterday living through the day you lost your precious Ken. Sending you thoughts of healing and comfort.

Love and hugs, Trina

Sarah, so sorry that you are going thru the anniversary date, its so hard, my sis just passed the 1 year mark with her husband, its just so overwhelming sometimes to think that time just keeps going on when the whole world should be feeling our loss not literally but

it seems everything should just stop. Im praying for your well being thru these difficult days

Dear Mary ...  Bob is there because he is embedded in your heart and your mind is filled with wonderful memories.  I often feel how sad it is that some never experience the love all of us have had and the good memories.  At times I too feel Ernie isn't with me, but every so often I feel he's right behind me if I'm cooking dinner or doing something else.  Other times I don't feel he is there.  What astonishes me the most is the years at one point seemed to drag and suddenly now I'm facing the 10th year this April and I wonder where the years went.  I too have my cries, but not as frequently as I once did.  Hang in there my dear friend and know we are all here for you.

Love & Hugs

Dear Sara ...  I know how it hurts your heart to think of your Ken and that it seems he was just there and now is gone.  There are no words to ease your pain, but please know we are all here for you.

It will be10 years since my Ernie passed away and sometimes it feels like yesterday and other times I wonder where the years went.  I still have a few times I have a good cry missing him and more so now that we stuck in our homes with Covid lurking.  We use to tell each other we could beat anything if we stuck together.  All our feelings are normal.  How can we love someone so deeply and no matter how many years you are with them just get on with life and never think of them again.  The are embedded in our hearts forever.  

Love & Hugs

Thanks Todd and Chuck.....time really is funny.  The days seemed to drag on, especially the early days but the years went by in the blink of an eye.

Todd.....Hope you've been doing ok.  I remember that you're right behind me and will be thinking of you as your date comes up in a few weeks.  We're here for you to lean as well.

Dear Sara,

Time for us always seems two faced - in ways it seems to drag, then conversely we turn around and years have passed. My heart is with you today.



Comment by Todd B. Goodrich on January 13, 2021 at 3:26pm

Sara - Sending you hugs and prayers my friend. I am right behind you. Claudia's DOD was 2-14-2016. Not looking forward to the 5 year either. We are here for you - your fellow support team and angels :-)
