Mom and Husband died within one month

by R. Griffin
(Mansfield, Ga USA)

My mom passed away on November 25th 2012. She was at home with hospice. We were all able to say goodbye to her. My husband was gunned down while leaving the Kabul Police Headquarters in the most secure area of all of Afghanistan on December 24th 2012. He worked as a Police Trainer for the US gov. I am really trying to figure out why the universe hates me.

Hard to be a survivor
by: Anonymous

I am so sorry for your losses. Life is not an easy path. It is terribly difficult to process the loss of your husband when you have just been grieving for your mom. I never would have thought that unfortunate events like this can happen to anyone. All I can say is be brave. Sometimes I too feel that God has stopped listening. Every single day I prayed for the safety if my family, and on Nov 17,2012, my son just got taken away in a motor accident. Hard to understand. I have stopped praying because I feel that if I pray, something worse can happen. My thoughts are with you. Your husband lived with valor and that is something to be proud of.

R Griffin I am sorry for your loss of your mom and your husband from a sudden death. I lost my husband to cancer 10 months ago tomorrow and we were married 44yrs. When your loved one's are taken away from us it does feel as you say. THE UNIVERSE HATES US. We can't help the way we feel or think about death. Life is hard when we lose our life partner. We are the ones left behind to mourn and grieve our loss which feels like forever. How do we reconcile with the Universe? Our loved one's go back to the earth and we remain for how long we don't know? Lonliness is all we will feel now ongoing. Life will hurt for us for a long time till we can heal from this loss. I wish you Peace in your Sorrow and Grief.

So sorry to hear of the two losses you have suffered in such a short time. I can't begin to imagine the pain that you must be in at this time. Thinking of you today.
