His last words

by Janice Bailey
(Linwood, N.C. USA)

John and I were married on March 16 2003. He was 54 and had never married. I was 46 and been married before. Our time together wasn't always the best. But in 2005 I had to quit work due to back surgery. That's when the love he had for me, I felt. He took care of me and worked everyday. Then in 2011 he retired and our life turned another page. We were so happy just doing what we wanted to do. On Jan.the 23rd 2012 I got a call about my Mom not doing well. But before we made it to the hospital she passed away. He was so strong for me, helped me get through the pain. But then on Feb.the 24th, it was a Friday we were watching tv. He never watched Dr.Phil. But that day he was scaning the tv.And on the show that day was a man that had been unfaithful to his wife. We only watched 20 minutes of the show. After it went off at 11am he turned to me and said just how much he loved me and what the vows that we took that day meant to him. The last thing he said to me. He die 10 minutes later. So this is the first anniversary of his death. And I miss him, more than words can say. By the way I also lost my Dad on March the 15th. So I have 3 first's. Please say a prayer that I can be strong though this months.

Janice I am sorry for your loss's. It is such a difficult time for you. Why does life turn out this way? I can't get my head around this timing. Death claimed his life so quickly. This was a sudden death. Try a grief counsellor if you find yourself getting stuck in grief.
I lost my husband of 44yrs. to lung cancer 8 months ago. he worked with asbestos and got a deadly cancer which was incurable, inoperable and aggressive. That was the WORST DAY OF MY LIFE. I nursed my husband through cancer for over 3yrs. It was a hard painful battle. It won't be easy for us widows to have a normal life again. Life has changed forever. I will probably lose my Dad soon as he is 91yrs. I didn't think my husband would die before my Dad. My Dad has been wanting to leave this world for some time now as the quality of his life is poor. He is being cared for by my younger sister. Thank God Christmas is over. My first without my husband. It was lonely without him. I hope you will be comforted in your sorrow and that you will have good people around you to support you. This does make a big difference to our grief.

So sorry

Firstly, words can help and I hope they do help you even in a little way. The pain you feel at that very moment in time, is undiscribable you had a few years of what being together really is about. Being with someone, has it's good and bad times, that is life but we cry for those good times and we yearn for them to come back and the reality of it all, is that it will not come back, that is the hardest part for me after losing my partner, I want them to walk back in the door or call my name or touch my hand as I pass them, it will not happen again and I just can't comprehend that. My belief is that we will be together again when my time comes, try to get so me comfort or something to ease that pain of losing your Husband, god bless his soul and yours. Take care of yourself. Jan xx someone who truly cares
