On August 17, 2014 , I lost the love of my life, after a very short battle with cancer. She was doing well until the third chemo , and less than two weeks later she was dead. Sue was my soul mate, sorry about the spelling. My whole life. She was my high school girl friend. We lost touch after I went into the Marines, went to Vietnam, and was never the same again. We reconnected 10 years ago and knew it was right , in every way, Married , and never so happy in our lives. She was my everything and I was hers. I don't know how to get along without her. I know she wants me to go on, but I don't know how. Her granddaughter is with me to help me, thank God, but I just can't shake the sadness. We have many friends that have offered their help, over and over again, but I don't want to be a burden on anyone . What can I do, I miss her so damn much it hurts. I can't eat , sleep , or get an interest in doing anything,.
