Hello. I just joined and this group. My soulmate and love of my life, Wendy, passed on December 20, 2015, only three weeks after having been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. You can see her in my profile photo with her head on my shoulder. The only thing that keeps me alive right now are our two boys (21, 23) and knowing that they still need me right now. But I really just want to be with her... I miss her so terribly and feel like my soul and body have been torn in half.

Janet, I guess I feel more stunned and numb with the loss of Jen. She had so much to look forward to, yet was taken so young. The loss of my BJ was more horrendous than my mother (and we were best friends, too), and I thought I'd lose myself after her passing. But, I'm still here; still going on because I know they would want me to. I envision me being like that cartoon where the old lady is sliding into Heaven saying, "Wow! Was that a great ride!" and I'd be all beaten up and worn out!

Since my BJ died, I have also lost my beloved granddaughter, Jen, age 23, to sepsis after surgery. My question is this: does the grief feel different after the loss of your spouse when someone else you love dies?

I lost my wife and partner of 38 years on Sept 4 she died 21/2 months after her totally unexpected diagnosis of stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. It is now a little over 2 months and I still miss her terribly. How are others handling the loneliness and empty house feeling
