Remembered forever.The love of my life.

by Eva Thompson
(Franklin N.C. USA)

My husband and I were married for a little more than 11 years.He went to his Heavenly home on November 6th 2011.He was put in the hospital on the 2nd.He had pulmonary fibrosis.He had smoked for a long time(about 40 years)Then quit about 5 years before his passing.He was 73 (10 years older than I,and I miss caring for him.
Our anniversary is February 14th.(tomorrow)I am so sad and depressed,because I am lonely.I have just one friend,and she's working her internship.I do not drive and I don't have any Church friends that show any concern since he's(my husband)has been gone.Do we as Christians forget about caring for others or for our neighbors?Are we that busy?
Thank you for reading.

I know how you feel
by: M Mack


I am sorry you feel so bad and lost the love of your life. You're right when you say you feel people dont have time have for you. I know exactly what you mean. Actually, I think they are more uncomfortable and don't really know how you feel or what to say. Loosing the love of your life is devastating. For me its a year and a half and I'm stuck in this world alone without him. I keep telling myself to stop, don't think about him all the time but I can't help it. I guess I'll progress in my own time iny own way. Your grief is yours. No matter what anyone says, you will have your grief in the way that fits you. Stay with this site.

remembered forerer. the love of my life
by: jules

You are not alone - you have found this site -talk to the people on here - read some of the older posts, go specifically to the lost partner section - share your grief with those who know how it feels, and have progressed with their lives.
Don't feel resentful of people who you feel are not there for you - this didn't happen to them, it happened to you - I, myself, feel that I have left some of my long time friends behind, I am not the same person that they knew - how can I be, I have lost my husband of almost 40 years, they haven't -I have no expectations of people to understand my life.
Join in the site - use it as your grief counsellor - it will help.
and every day - remember - one step, one breath
take care

My sincere condolences
by: Janet

My sincere condolences to you Eva. It does seem that in today's society people don't seem to care about other people. I too lost the love of my life on the 1st of November 2011. Jim was 58 and I am 64. I understand your grief, pain & loneliness. It is all a part of the grieving process. The one thing that has keep me going is this site and the fact that I know that God is with me, that God does not give us any more than we can handle and that he has other plans for us even though at this point we have no idea what.
Every one will travel this road at some point in their life. Some of us just travel it sooner than others. Find a support group in your area for Widows and Widowers. Check into doing some volunteer work. There are people that out there that do care and want to help. Sometimes it is just a matter of finding them or of them finding you. There is a book available on this site called "Tear Soup" and it is well worth the money to get it and read it. I have read it more than once and each time I find something new in it. I have another book that I am reading for the 4th time called "Who Moved My Cheese". It is about how people deal with change in their life. Death of a loved one is one of the biggest changes that we have to go through as we travel through life.
Remember to take care of yourself; that God holds each of us in the palm of his hands and that he is with us at all times. Take one breath, one step and one day at a time. I wish you the best going forward and am here should you ever want to talk. May God Bless You.

We Will Always Remember
by: Anonymous

I'm so sorry for your loss. The pain of losing our beloved spouses is wrenching. I lost my husband 14 months ago. I think people forget. They are afraid of death. I had several good friends that were there for me the first few months. They've slowly drifted away. I hear from occasionally but not enough.
The days are lonely and I it seems like I miss him more every day. All we do is do our best. Take things one day at a time.
God is there for us. He will help us through. I hope you find some happiness in your day.
