In Loving Memory

Christmas is just days away and just that thought could send us all into a tailspin. I know we're all feeling the loss more than ever and we wonder will we make it through the day.

I would like to thank the creators of this site. We are lost, alone and heartbroken at times but we have this site to talk, cry and give courage to those in need with no worries how we express ourselves.

We will all have our good days and not so good days for were now traveling through uncharted waters.

All I would like to say is ~
Merry Christmas to you all, bring the tissues if needed and smile when you can, and if you can't ~ that's OK too.

I want the thank everybody who's ever written to me. Your words of compassion, understanding and encouragement give me hope of things to come and tell me I'm not alone on this journey.

And to my love, Billy ~
Rest in peace my love, We will be together some day soon ~
Peace be with us all ~
Always, 1 step, 1 breath at a time

Thank you-Thank you
by: Pat J

I too would like to thank the creators of this Web Site. I lost my husband just 3 weeks ago tomorrow. He fought such a courageous battle against heart disease but we weren't blessed with the much needed transplant. He was so afraid that his young grandsons won't remember him. I will to my best to keep his memory alive.

Christmas without him will be a difficult thing to get through. I will try to be upbeat for my 3 little grandsons. They don't like it when Grandma cries.

I continue to pray to God for daily strength. I think I was in a state of shock for 2 weeks and right now every day seems to be getting worse. I pray that after the holidays are over we will all begin making some progress in the New Year. God's blessings to all who read this.

I agree, thank you for creating this site to express our thoughts. This Christmas is so very difficult and I don't even want to think about it. I was just last month my Rusty left me and I can't even think that he will not be with me this Christmas for the first time in 35 years. It is just not fair. I need him so bad my heart hurts. Why does it have to be this way? He was only 63 and in perfect health, we thought. Had emergency bypass surgery, doing great and sit down saying he felt dizzy and he was gone.

Patricia, you are right.. so wonderful that we can say what we feel and are all going through the same thing. The grief of our spouses that we have lost and are so alone.

bittersweet Christmas
by: Mari

Hi Patricia, You are right, Christmas will be bittersweet, I know you will be thinking of Billy and I my husband. With God's help we will make it through. The days just come and go and we keep going, One day we will feel stronger and more able to cope.

Christmas is just a few days away and we are anticipating the arrival of a great grandaughter. My husband adored the granchildren and I like to think he will be looking down from heaven.
I am sad but at the same time I have faith that God will pull us through.

For some reason the rainy weather makes me miss him more. He use to come home in a yellow raincoat and give me a hug.

God blessed me with him just as God blessed you with Billy. There are many nice people here and we can express our feelings. Keep posting as it really helps. May God bless you and remember we are here for you whatever is on your mind and heart.
