Mark Williams ~ Soulmate, Lover, Friend

It has been one month and three days that you were taken away so suddenly from me and our three precious children. I still can't believe you're gone. Our house feels so empty and lonely without you here, and even though I know your spirit is with us, it isn't the same. I wake up in the morning and realize that it really is true, and some nights you come and visit me in my sleep. I try to go about my day, but I feel so lost. I'm not sure how to go on without you. It's almost as if I'm a walking shell of who I once was. I have been given a special gift, though, and that is the gift of your love. Your love was so pure and true, and you showed me that I am ok just the way I am. I will stand true to this, I promise. I will do my very best every single day to raise our children the way we always talked about, and I promise I will never let them forget you. They feel much sadness, too, and I know their little minds are thinking about you every single day. We love listening to your music. Thank you for that precious gift. We will always get to hear your voice, and see you play your guitar. I miss you more than any words could ever say, and I thank you for being with me and giving me strength and courage to get through this time in my life. For now I will keep taking it day by day. I will cry my tears whenever they come leaking out. I will hug our family, I will take care of your mom and our kids and your sisters. I will live the way you would have, Mark. That is a promise. Love you forever and always....

The death of my husband has devastated my life. As a mother of young children your struggle has to be overwhelming. Your grief is so new there is little anyone can say to comfort you. We can only take our lives one day at a time. Don't look too far into the future.
I am so sorry for your loss. You have to take care of you so you can be there for your children. It seems like a difficult thing to do right now but you have to be a little selfish and make sure you are being taken care of. There is probably someone in your life you can depend on and lean on. Do it. Lean hard. Get massages, mani pedis, talk therapy. ANYTHING that makes you feel better.
Nobody can sugar coat things. It's going to be a bumpy roller coaster ride for a while. One day up. One day down.
Husbands are the one person we get to choose in our lives. We're stuck with everyone else in our family but our spouses are our choice. It's so hard to lose them. The person we shared our hopes and dreams with, the person who knew us best. Go to bed without him, wake up without him.
It does get better but it's not easy. Cling to those around you who are supportive and don't give a second thought to those who aren't. Your husband is with you. He always will be. Look for the little signs to know he's there. He will always love you and your children. He didn't want to leave you. It wasn't his choice.
I pray for peace for both of us. God bless.

so very sorry for your loss. losing someone is such a tragic and very sad time. i myself have lost many loved ones. i can share your sadness and loneliness very sincerely. if you would ever like to talk and need some added encouragement or words of compassion, just give me a jingle at
406-861-7392. i'm the one who has the nursing
home comment under the grief blog topics.

i wish you the best with everything you need to accomplish in your life. at least we always have our memories to hold on to, even though our memories just don't seem like enough, we still have those and other people to lean on for support and love.
