On my Birthday,  January 18, 2008 I lost my husband to A.L.S.  A great husband, father, son and friend.  And if that wasn't hard enough 3 days later on the day he was layed out at the funeral home, walking in to the funeral home my Mom fell to the floor and had a massive heart attack and died.  I cannot express the horror that myself and my family felt that day and still feel.  I have managed somhow to go on with my life and have been in a relationship for 2 years.  The grief still comes and goes very randomly, this Christmas was especially hard for me, my son and daughter.  I really don't know how to celebrate my birthday anymore.  It doesn't feel right to celebrate on the day I lost my husband, the thought of it coming up is so hard.  Does anyone have any advise??

Gosh, my birthday was 10-28 my husband managed to hang on until 3:30 so he actually dies on oct29th 2010. I lost my Mom 12-12-2010. She got sicker 2 days after I buried Charles, Has surgery and never recoveried. Both our girls are married, one lives 350 miles away and the other one lives closer. Christmas was bad but New Year's eve was the worst. No matter how sick he got we always set the clock to 11:55 so I could kiss him Happy New Year. It really hit me that night that I will always miss him and that kiss. If you need a friend I can be emailed at clhannah@centurytel.net. God bless and keep you in his loving arms. Marilyn
