I Lost the Love of my life on Thankgiving day of this year.

I Loved him with my whole heart and I know he felt the same way. Sometimes i find myself wanting to call him or expect himto come home at night. The day he died they let me hold him and i laid my head on his chest and listened to his heart beat till it stoped, as he took his last breath i… Continue

The holidays are upon us and while many of us revel in the joy family traditions bring, for those grieving a loss, the holidays can hold little joy. Continue
So what should we do for those we care about mourning a loss? Do we send cards? Buy gifts? Try to cheer them up?
For starters, it’s important to understand that grief is very individual and runs its own course. It’s not something anyone can control and the bereaved need to mourn their loss at their own pace and in their own…

On Saturday I found my boyfriend dead in my bathtub. We were getting engaged between Christmas and New Years. I don't know how to go on. I don't know how to live my life without him. I love you so much honey.

I has been 1 year, 5 months and 14 days since I lost my Tom. We had been married over 42 years. And I am really just now feeling the impact. This past time has been one of adjustment, of arranging, of grief but now it is really hitting home. Could it be the Holidays, probably. But I do know that I am feeling lonely and abandoned. He is supposed to be here w/me, helping w/life, making decisions and just being. I never opened up to anyone, preferring to be "strong" for family and friends but… Continue

This will be my first Christmas without my little brother. I tried to write on here the other day, but it kept saying there was an error. He died in a sudden car accident last Jan 23rd. I still wake up and think this is all a bad dream & I am going to wake up! Today my mom & I went to the crash site & put some solar lights up on his cross. We are going to decorate a living christmas tree with solar christmas lights (purchased at Target) and put it down at his grave. He loved… Continue

First a note of thank you to all living veterans and their families. twenty nine years ago today i had to make the hardest phone call of my life. I found out early in the morning that my two neices had found their mother, my sister Peggie Jeanne, dead on the kitchen flloor. I then had to call my mom in Erie and tell her. She lived in an apartment in the "old orphange" on West 6th St. Fortunately she had friends there and i was able to get two of them go to her apartment and at the same time… Continue

I lost my very best friend on Dec 2, 2009 at 9:30 am of esophigial cancer. He was my ex husband. We were married for 22 years and had 3 children together. After all the years together I asked for a divorce. I sure wasn' for a lack of Love. We sort of grew bored with each other. After I left he had written me an e-mail telling me that he is glad that one of us had to courage to do what had to be done. It has been 14 years since the divorce but through the years we still were best friends. I… Continue

Sometimes loss is so devastating it sends you into a seemingly never-ending downward spiral. Do you often find yourself descending into darkness rather than looking for the positive ray of sunshine present in every situation?
Try to remember that every event in life is neutral. It is neither good nor bad; positive nor negative; happy nor sad. It is you, and your response, which gives meaning to the event.
I do not mean to mitigate the death of a spouse, or any loss for… Continue

A reader wonders, “Is it too late to send a condolence note six months after a death?” I’m not aware of a statute of limitations when it comes to condolence notes, but how late is too late? Is it appropriate to send a note six months or even one year after a death? Continue
Your first consideration should be the bereaved. How might they feel when they receive your belated note? Will they be comforted that someone remembers them and their loved one? Will they feel better knowing…

I really like this idea, :
I dont think you have to go to a service but it would be nice to light a candle and place it outside if you can do that safely, if not just light one in your home, I have lit a candle every day since my Son left and I just cant stop doing it, It is like a little light for my Angel to see. The above link will tell you if there are services near you.
And you are…
