My Jim

by Terry

Jim and I married Oct 18, 1975. He was 17 and I was 15. We met when I was 11 and he was 13. Jim and I truly were soul mates and remained married until Dec 10, 2011, when God called him home -at the age of 53.

Jim was dx with non-hodgkin’s lymphoma 22 months ago. The doctors all said he had the most curable form of cancer. The Chemo and radiation ravaged his body but he never complained. He fought a brave battle but, never went into remission. I sit here in total shock at the loss of my sweet Jim. I know Jim is just as much a part of my future as he was my past, I know I will see him again-Jim loved God and I know where he is but, the pain and loneliness is still almost unbearable.

Soulmates Are Forever

We are all in the same situation on this web site. I lost my husband just a little over 1 year ago. I too have a strong faith ~ belief that we will be together again some but.......what are we supposed to do in the mean time? I'm so lonely. Friends try to fix me up. It's too soon. I don't want to even think about another man. Everyone tells me it's "MY TIME." What I do with my time is mainly sit and think about Joe and how much I miss him. I think about the wonderful Christmas celebrations we had in the past and cry.
The pain can be unbearable. It really does help to write your feelings. We are here listening. I've made some progress although the holidays have set me back a bit. It takes awhile to even feel alive again. Jim will live in your heart forever. It's trying to live without them that is the hard part.
God bless. Sending you hugs today.
