Care, That gave me a good image and a good laugh. Certainly something that I can relate to!

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!

Care, I personally would not know, but I'm guessing the grief would be different. But, you have the grief of your partner on top of the grief of your granddaughter. Jen's passing probably magnified your grief since you were still in a lot of pain from BJ's passing. You sound like you are finally getting to a better place. Kudos to you.

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?

To Laura, I lost my partner of 21 years. She passed on October 5, 2015. Just a little over 5 months after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I too, have this feeling that I will simply go MAD. I am also in an empty house and terribly lonely. We were pretty much joined at the hip. We owned a company together for 18 years and we had to sell that as soon as we knew her diagnosis. I do try to stay busy. I am retired and that makes it even harder.

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
