She died peacefully on 5/9/2010

by Bob

My soul mate of 20 years died. I was with her as was her two sisters and our dog. I cannot sleep and Buffy the dog can't either. Lin was my best friend, spouse, sole-mate, lover, and companion. She had such bad health and bad pain for many years and now she is free of pain. But somehow I must go on without her presence. I feel that it will take more than death to separate us, as the bond continues. But I so miss her and wish we could go back to how it was before.

Bob, I had one too...
by: Hope

My soul mate died after 17 years of love, laughter, friendship and delight every time he walked in the door. I was his "caretaker" for a year after his aneurysm and stoke. He had seizures (grand mal) 5 months after and I was unprepared and did not know this as an aftermath of stroke and or brain injury.

I too miss him as you do your wife. Miss is an insignificant word to describe how your life changes after such a huge loss. I miss the old Paul and the New (after brain surgery) Paul. I would love to have one more hug of either version of my Love. I think that they are looking over us and as we take on their responsibilities and attempt to make a life without them.

I can only hope that their memories become fond instead of bittersweet. All the best to you, hoping that you gain strength within as time passes. Time does not heal all wounds, merely softens the pain little by little. HH
