thanks Jeanne..know your tired.. looking forward to talking further when you get home...  similar situation for me also..  my lover was in the process of getting a divorce, but hadn't done that yet... so when she passed, her husband stepped in and  took over.. never got to go to her funeral, or anything, tho i paid for it...then he tried to sue me for taking her away... unreal...

safe flight my friend  and Merry Christmas    big  hugssssssssss

Hey all... I lost my first lover  in a car accident.. I was driving...altho this was many years ago, it never totally goes away.. i still fondly remember her and what we had been to each other...  We were taking our first vacation together.. going to spend  5 days in P-Town-.. we lived in upstate New York...  we both worked the 3-11 shift, so after we had gotten out of work,   we finished packing the car and took off...  we did everything like we should.. alternate driving. she had her pepsi, i had my coffee... taking breaks as needed...  about 6 am   i was driving, she, sleeping...  i felt myself starting to nod off and thought i'd better find a place to stop and both nap for a bit...  we were by the Sturbridge exit on the mass pike...  the next think i knew..  we were under  the back  of an 18 wheeler...  i had fallen asleep...  i was fine.. minor injuries,  she wasn't...  the  corner of the trailer had come through the windshield and   had crushed the side of her head...  she was rushed to  U Mass Medical, made it through surgery,  but passed shortly afterwards... the loos and guilt i felt was unreal.. and i was also charged with vehicular man slaughter.. luckly i had a good lawyer, provided by the gay community  up there..  and a sympathetic judge.. was given a suspended sentence and community service.. after that was completed, my record was cleared...  i have learned over the years to deal with the pain and guilt.. but it never is completly gone... i feel that for what ever reason, it was time for her to " go home"..  it wasn't my time.. that i had more to accomplish...  so here i am...

i joined this group, because i have been there and do understand what's it's like to lost your lover, your friend...and if i can help others, am here..

 take care all..

hugssssssssss.. Jeannie
