I just saw this request. And I understand. There is no one left to say "remember when.....? to....." As far as animals, David and I raised Akita's. I love these dogs, but live on the 14th floor and we decided it would be hard to train a puppy. And I am going to Copenhagen in December to visit my son and his family. He named the new baby after his father, when I called him from the street to tell him I thought he had better fly down to Houston, where we were at the time. And I do want to possibly visit my friends in Houston, who were at the memorial services. The entire thing was so sureal and I am traumatized by the entire event.
Charlotte, I share your pain and loss. David and I had 53 magnificent years; we too were each others' best friend. His death was unexpected and a shock to everyone. I share your longing. Our son lives with his family in Denmark, My sister lives in Israel. I am so very alone. I "feel" him turning over in our bed; I "hear" him coming in the front door and bursting into song "Where is the most beautiful girl in the world." My friends all live in Houston, where he died. We lived in California. I, too, feel COMPLETLY ALL ALONE. And waking up in the morning is the hardest thing in the world because I wake up and there is no one there, even in the city where I live. It is late. I will write later. If you want to share e-mails, I am open to it. I am new to this and we all need to connect to each other
Dear friends i lost my husband on March 26th & it is hard to loose a loved one who you were married to over 56 years. He stayed in the hospital almost 2 weeks & we took him to my son's home so he could help me with him & he passed away the next day not 24 hours later. It was so sad . just me & my 4 children were with him with the home nurse & he just quit beathing & it was the hardest thing i have ever faced .
He was my husband so long & he kept telling me he had to take a ride & i thought he meant he wanted to come home but i was with him alone the last night & he called me to his bed & told me he loved me , he had always loved me & alwyas would love me , because i was his girl. He ask was i scared & i said yes & he said are you scared now & i said yes , he said if you are you will never make it & that was the last words he spoke. He knew he was leaving me & the DR also said he couldn't live his heart rate was at 194 & they couldn't get it down. He got so he could barely wisper but talked to me the night before just as he had always talked to me.
It is a lonely life alone . I have one sister who calls me & a nephew & his wife e mails me & the rest on my sisters & brothers have not called or came since his Funeral.
I too just sit in the house & i cried so much i burst a blood vessel in my eye & the Dr said it was where i cried so much & wipng my eyes so much is why my eye was bleeding.
No one knows what it is to loose your husband & none of your family even calls or comes after the funeral is over.
None of his people even came to his funeral from FL but yet they say they loved him dearly .
It was put of face book by his niece that she hoped i got my hearts desires
granted now that he was gone. I don't know what she meant & i have ask the Drs' & other people & they said they didn't know what she meant either. Wish i did know what she meant.
It gets so lonely at night & being alone y
