I lost my husband Dave in June, 2008, the day after his birthday. It was just the two of us, we had no children. Now I live alone with our 2 cats. I am finding it difficult to move on. Dave had diabetes and issues with his heart. We had been married 26 years. He said he wanted to work until the day he dropped and that's exactly what happened. He went to sleep and never woke up. I live in Ohio and have 2 older sisters in TX and Dave's parents in PA. Dave used to say our home was "our little piece of heaven." I work a full time job but I still have a lot of things in the house that were Dave's and I have his ashes. For 3 years no one came in my house. Finally I decided to see if I could meet another person. I met someone and after dating him for six months I was scammed out of $1,500. Dave owned a semi truck and was gone 5 days a week. I am used to being alone but I don't like it. Well here comes Thanksgiving and I will be alone with the cats. I am planning on retirement next year. I started working right after high school and will have worked 48 years full time. Dave's CB handle was "Shepard" and I was "Lost Sheep."
