My Beautiful Wife

by Steve Mattson
(Omaha, Ne.)

We were married 23 years ago today. I never thought I would be growing old without you. The last two years were spent missing you.The time we shared together were the happiest of my life. And I want you to know that nothing made me happier than being your husband. My biggest fear is that you didn't know how proud I am of you and how much you mean to me. Sometimes when I take Tyke to the park, I find myself sitting in the grass and watching him play while imagining you next to me with your head on my shoulder. Precious moments are re-lived almost daily. I treasure the memories of our time together.
I believe God can provide a purity of memory and will highlight the positive aspects of a lost love, thus leaving those left behind, nothing but thoughts worthy of remembering...... if that is what their heart chooses. That is very comforting and just one of His many miracles. His wisdom and compassion validates everything and most importantly, our love for each other. In my heart, we will be together forever.
I loved you.
I love you.
I'm ALWAYS going to love you.
So very much. Happy Anniversary!
Love, me.

Deepest sympathy
by: Lawrence

Dear Steve,
What wonderful tribute to a dearly beloved wife who is so deeply missed by you, your grief and overwhelming heartache and loneliness screams out.
Regretfully all of us on this web site have also suffered the loss of a very precious loved one, and there are no words of comfort anyone can give, the pain goes right to the soul.
I lost my beautiful sweetheart on Christmas Day 2012 after nearly seventy years of pure bliss, one minute we were talking and two hours later I was kissing her goodbye on her deathbed.
I miss her incredibly and the past eighteen months have done nothing to ease the pain of her passing.
Through it all I consider myself so lucky to have had all those years of happiness, and I always say,grief is the price you pay for it, as well you know.
Being a widower, or indeed a widow is unbelievably the worst that life can throw at you and although people say they know what we are going through, they don’t, you have to experience the aching longing to be kissed and loved and to have someone say “BLESS YOU” when you sneeze, or a shoulder to cry on when life gets you down to understand what it’s like.
I’m so sure that Lisa knew how proud you were of her and of your deep love, how could she not when you can express your adoration of her so beautifully to us all..
From one grieving widower to another.
My deepest sympathy.

My Beautiful Wife.
by: Doreen UK

Steve I am sorry for your loss of your beloved wife Lisa 2 yrs. ago. You have done the only thing you could do which is to honour your wife on your anniversary and hope that life will be kind to us as we grieve the loss our spouse's.
I lost my husband of 44yrs. to cancer 2yrs. ago and dread the anniversaries that come and go, finding the best way to honour the person we loved and lost. You are not alone. As often said on this site. This now becomes the GRIEF CLUB we all belong to. All we can do is to support each other best way we can so we feel less alone with our grief.

Dear Steve

Dear Steve, what a beautiful letter you wrote to your wife. God bless you.
The biggest mystery when our mates pass before us is that we will never know what they would have written to us.
I would have hoped my husband would write such a lovely letter to me. I'm just glad God spared him the awful heartbreak of me going first.
This greiving process is not for sissies.
