My husband I were married for almost five years he was a kind and gentel soul. He grew up after the stock market fell
around 1929. He grew fast after his father left the family. He worked part time to help bring in income. He went into the
Air force than into Army He became a master cook. His hobbies included racing in miner tracks and he was a great bowler he lived a simple life but to me he was everything. The last three weeks of his life was the hardest for me to watch. I saw the man I loved on a mask to help him breath and it killed me I couldn't give him the food he wanted. When he died it was him and I and I told him I loved him till his last breath and now I am searching for a way to go on. Sweetheart I will always love you rest in peace till we meet again.

My one true love
by: Doreen U.K.

Julie Life is hard now when we lose the love of our lives as I am finding out. I lost my husband of 44yrs. 10 months ago to lung cancer caused by working with asbestos. There was no cure or operation, or Hope for my husband. He knew he was going to die. He fought hard for 3yrs. and then had to give up. I nursed him for over 3yrs. and had to give him his oxygen mask often to help with his breathing. It is a most horrid nightmare journey of illness that robs one of dignity. Life now feels so empty and lonely and it won't get better because no one can take the place of the one you love. Not ever.
We are in the trenches of grief. I get through a day and then another and every day is the same and I rise to do it all over again. I don't have the motivation to anything but now do all the house repairs. I have 3 rooms to paint before I have a break and carry on painting the whole house. It is just giving me something to do. But at 65yrs. of age my body is aching and I feel all beat up. But it is a diversion from feeling miserable, lost, and lonely. Glad the brighter evenings will be here. It won't change things except take away some of the darkness that surround us after a death. You are not alone in what you are going through. But we are all alone in our journey as this is one we face alone. May your days get brighter and filled with HOPE that you will survive and you will Live for the man you loved as I do also.
