Lonely Widower

by Bill
(Oregon USA)

I lost my beautiful wife after 37 wonderful years of marriage after a long illness. We were everything to each other. She was the best wife and companion a man could ever hope to have. We shared a love that most people only dream about.

She passed away March 2, 2012 while I held her in my arms. She said she always felt safe in my arms so I held her close during her final moments.

Now I feel totally lost and empty inside. I feel life no longer has any meaning or purpose. I loved her so deeply I don't think the hole in my heart will ever heal. I cry every day and every knight. I don't know what to do.

I too am sad and lonely
by: Tom Murray

I live in western Ireland and lost my wife Coleen to whom I was marrried for 39 years on 4th April 2012 to cancer. I am Roman Catholic and thus like all Christians I believe in the Resurrection and so Coleen and I will meet again in Eternity and I will meet all my deceased friends and relatives there again. So -- don't be down hearted -- it is but a temporary parting. God Bless you all. Tom

Grieving beside you
by: Rod

I too am suffering a devastating loss following a wonderful 27 year marriage. The hole left behind seems to only be able to fill with more loneliness and emptiness. I will never understand why all the "tomorrows" we dreamt about had to be stolen away from us. We never had the chance to enjoy the latter rockin' years....

I know how you feel ....
by: Anthony

Yes, it is an empty void that cannot be filled - I am in exactly the same position that you are in. My wife Constance and I are soulmates and spent every moment together - married for 16 1/2 years and God took her away on 19 March 2012 - never smoker lung cancer.

I cannot, till today, get over it, and break down many times during the day grieving for my loss. Yes, it is my loss as I see no purpose in my life too. I am fully aware that Cons is in heaven by the side of Jesus and it is much better there than to suffer here. My only question to Jesus is, why must she have been struck down by cancer?

My wife,companion and soul mate
by: Tom

I know EXACTLY how you feel!! I lost my Tina 5 years ago after 31 years together. She battled Muscular Dystrophy for 18 years which was the time she spent in her wheelchair. I miss her very much and still cry for her on occasion? I play Josh Groban songs as he is my favorite music person to listen to. So many of his songs remind me of her?? I will NEVER be the same wthout my Tina,but I do have 2 sons and 5 grandchildren and they keep me going these days?? Visit your wife at the cemetary as I often do. I bring purple flowers(her favorite)and prayers and ALWAYS cry?? That's just the way that it is now??
