Stephen That's what we need to do..."know how truly blessed we are to have had our loved ones" even when it's not as long as we planned.
I see so many people living UNHAPPILY day after day and I think... what a waste of the precious time we are given here on earth!!!! Irene

Hi Ann I was the coordinator on the phone. If a friend called that wanted to talk or visit I would say let me ask him if he's up for it. Towards the end he said no to visits and I gently told whoever it was it wasn't a good time but thanked them for calling and asked them to call back at a later time. That seemed to work well.
Normally Phil had no problem with our sons and grandkids visiting. But t...

Dear GGG I am so sorry for your loss.
Grief is work and takes its own sweet time when you have lost someone so dear.
You might want to look up some grief books or try some counseling thru grief support groups by calling a local hospice.Plus keep coming onto this site.

Dear Ann I am so sorry you and your husband and family are going through this.
I lost my husband of 40 yrs in 2011 so our sons were both in their 30s. Both have handled the loss of their dad according to their individual personalities. I would think yours will also. Sometimes all we can do is hug a loved one or listen if they want to talk.
For myself I bought all the books I could find written by w...

Yesterday Was the 3rd anniversary of my "friend"s wife's death. He is not good with dates but I remembered for him and was teary eyed.
This Thursday marks 2 years since we met, though we had messaged for a month and a half before that. Thursday also marks 4 1/2 years since Phil passed.
I felt so sad thinking of our spouses who are no longer here to steady our course. Yet I am thankful Hank and I did find ...

Hi Stephen It is so hard to move forward after suffering the loss of a beloved spouse. Everything is new. We don't fit into that old comfortable mold any longer. I know I felt I had lost my identity when Phil was no longer physically here.
Some of my friends met the new guy last week and one told me today she didn't picture me with some who looks like him. Heck neither did I. Phil was a th...

Hey there Eternalife
Well my forehead is healing nicely from the surgery. I go back in late Oct and probably have it lasered so the scar will be less visible. I am concerned bout a couple of precancerous ones now that will be removed soon. I am really taking this seriously and lots of sunscreen and staying in the shade. I think it's kind of like quiting smoking after 45 yrs though. Damage probably already done.

Hi Max I am so sorry for the loss of your husband.
I too found it so hard to move forward after my Phil died (4 1/2 yrs next month). I remember telling my son I felt like my whole identity had been stolen. My nucleus was gone.
I thought once I made it thru that first 12 months I would be ok. There was no longer that horrid anticipatory of all the holidays. I knew I could get thru them. Yet there was sti...

Grief is as individual as we all are whether male or female and the relationships we had, but we do share in this horrible loss.
Yesterday at the vets I was talking to the tech I know who just lose her mom after a fast 5 day struggle with acute lukemia. She mentioned how it doesn't seem real at times.
Last night I took my 13 yr old grandson to a minor league baseball game. Sitting ahead of us was a granddad an...
