Ben was my soul mate...It has been almost 7 months since he passed away, and I don't think the hurt will ever go away. We finished each others sentences.If you had or have a soul mate, then you know what I'm talking about. No one knew me like he did. He was my best friend,and I miss him so much.Ben was a singer, and we shared so many happy times together,and I will cherish my beautiful memories with him forever...

Linda I am sorry for your loss of your soul mate Ben. It is so difficult to lose someone who was so close. It does feel as if you might never get over this loss. It has been 19 months for me losing my husband of 44yrs. to lung cancer. I took the time to nurture myself from grief for the first 6 months and it started to get easier. There are days I feel my grief more because I am doing retirement alone. Working and finding something worthwhile in life does help us move forward better. But it does take a long time to recover from grief. Take one day at a time and you will get through your days easier. Don't give up Hope. Life will get better for all of us in time. Grief can't last forever.

I feel for you Linda. I lost my better half of 11 yrs., Dolores Wells on Mother's Day this year to cancer, and I miss her more today than yesterday, if possible? I've been told it gets easier, but not yet, or I just might not be letting it get easier. The holidays are going to be hard so please hold up for Ben, I believe we will be together again , and that's keeping me going. Dec. 9 th, I'm turning 50, and it is so hard I just want to hear her beautiful voice wish me a happy birthday, and it won't be so. Somehow we will get through this horrible chapter in our life, as hard as it might be now. I wish you all the best. Again, stay strong for Ben. Dave
