Bruce was my everything

by Colleen
(Edenvale, Gauteng, South Africa)

We were together for seventeen years we were married on the 24 October 2009. On the 12 September 2010 he woke up unable to move his legs and was admitted to hospital; cancer was diagnosed; After 9 weeks in hospital my Bruce passed away. He was every thing to me, my best friend, lover, my life. I can not imagine a life without him; the pain is so great. I pray for the day to come when we can be together again.

Bruce was my everything
by: jules

I can feel your pain, and understand that you do not want to go on without Bruce. But he is gone, you are here - you will come to terms with this loss, you will not get over it - probably never - but you will learn to live with it - you will learn to make a life for yourself - you are a different person now - you have to be - honour your loves memory by living the best life you can without him.

I miss my John every day, hardly an hour goes by in a day when he is not in my mind - but I am making my life as good as I can without him. He would expect this of me - I know this as I knew him very well (we were together 42 years). I will love him all the rest of my life, but this is not to say that there could be others in my life at some stage, if it feels right, John would also expect this of me, as he knew me very well.

Please take the baby steps, the deep breaths, post on this site - read others posts - and live the best life you can.
