My Girl

It's good to find that long term grief (5 years) is not abnormal. My Wife of 15 years died 5 years ago of terminal cancer. We had good closure, She lived for a year after Her diagnosis. I just still miss Her so much. Today is Thanksgiving. That was the holiday we "did" for our families. I have since moved cross country (NY to AZ), and am not near Her or my family. I'm going to a friend's place for turkey today.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that it is OK to still Love and miss someone after 5 years. WE had the best life together, which fell to pieces after She died, and I miss it! It's OK to miss a good thing that is gone.

Mary Kate, my Love, happy Thanksgiving in Heaven Baby. I give thanks for You every day. today I am one day and night closer than I was yesterday. I will see you again. We Will Love again, eternally!

Paul I am sorry for your loss of your beloved wife to cancer. I lost my husband of 44yrs. to terminal cancer 18 months ago and I know it is such a struggle. We will never get over our loss. We will just learn to live with this loss many years hopefully without the raw pain we feel for some time. Healing from loss is slower than we want. As humans we want to rush grief so that the pain will end.
I am glad you are moving on with our life in a normal healthy way knowing that your love will never die even though it may be years later. WE can still honour our loved one's and one way is to celebrate who and what they were to us. Here in the UK we don't celebrate THANKSGIVING. You have a wonderful tradition and we have a lot to be THANKFUL for having the loved one's in our life and having the richness of life with them which has now ended. We will carry them in our hearts FOREVER.
