I miss my best friend, love, husband,soul mate and wonderful father.

by Karen

I was 15 when I met my soul mate on a blind date in 1979. We were so much in love, in 11 years, not a day went by that we didn't talk or see one another, always together. That's when after graduating college he proposed to me and we were married in 1990. We traveled the world enjoying each other in everthing we did. In 1995 we settled down to start our family.....our son was born and in 1997 our daughter was born. We had a wonderful and loving family....life was great. Then in July 2011 my husband experienced pain in his legs and bottoms of his feet. He went to the doctors twice a week for 3 weeks trying to figure out his pain. When at last the doctor ordered a CT scan...two days later they told us he had pancreatic cancer. Then the whirlwind of doctors and hospitals started. He was eventually diagnosed with Stage 4 stomach cancer. The pain in his legs was bloodclots from the cancer. From the day he was diagnosed on August 8, 2011 to the day he passed on November 7, 2011. We fought the fight...he wanted so much to live to see his kids graduate, get married, have kids, but most of all he wanted to be alone with me, to have his best friend back for himself. Every day is a struggle, I miss him so terribly. It is so hard to be alone... I miss you everyday until we met again.

Best Friend..............
by: TrishJ

I understand completely and am truly sorry for your loss. I know the pain only to well.
I lost my husband 14 months ago. I've come to terms with his death but doesn't make the loneliness any less. He's the last thing I think about at night and the first thing I think about in the morning. He too was my soul mate.
All we can do is do our best.....take things one day at a time.....try to find happiness in what remains in our lives.
I once said that the only thing I could imagine worse than losing Joe was never having had him in my life at all. I thank God for the years we had together. I had the best and I'm sure you did too. The more we loved the harder we grieve. It's the price we pay for such true love.
I hope you find some happiness in your day.
Peace to you.
