I'm so thankful for our 48 years together

by Mary

At 12:05 a.m. tomorrow, it will be 3 weeks since your last breath here on earth became your first breath with Jesus. I know you are feeling such joy and peace now, but I am so alone and sad without you. I love you, Tom, and I always will. You gave me two beautiful daughters, and your blood will flow on in our beautiful grandchildren. I've gone through denial, anger, and extreme sadness that the world keeps on going without you. I know I will be okay in time, but right now it is so painful, so very painful. Please God, give the comfort and peace I need to survive this. I also pray for all who have lost a loved one that you will give them peace and comfort.

I'm so thankful for 48 yrs
by: silver

I was allowed 33 yrs with my love.I miss him every day.He died May 29,2011.I consider myself blessed to have had him that long.I know others who didn't. I still cry often but I know GOD was merciful to take him when HE did.He only had 40% of his lung power and then got pneumonia.While he was out they found a tumor in one of his lungs.Surgery and radiation were out because of his poor lungs.He was so frail and even if he recovered from the pneumonia he would have had to spend 24/7 in a chair w/oxygen and chemo. He might have lived another 2 or 3 weeks in pain and mental distress.I would have been afraid to sleep.I'm glad he didn't have to go through that.Yes,I wish he was still here but not sick like he was.Yes,I wanted more time but GOD knows best.May GOD send you strength and peace.I know I wouldn't have made it through these 2 yrs without HIM.

Mary I am sorry for your loss of your beloved husband. I lost my husband of 44yrs. 10 months ago to cancer. We were together for 48yrs also counting before marriage. It is the worst experience us women will go through when we lose our life partner. I have 3 Adult Children living their own lives as I do now alone. I have been through the denial, anger, and extreme pain and after 10 months it is easing very slowly. But I have ill health with the grief.
I am thankful for the years I had with my husband and I have these precious memories forever. Life for us will never be the same. We just find a new normal that gets us by each day till things change. Best wishes
