We Were Soul Mates.. We Lived A Real Love Story

The Love Of My Life..

My dear husband and best friend died while we were on vacation in Europe. We had just celebrated his 66th birthday. He died of an abdominal blockage.
We met in our forties and spent the last 20 years together in bliss.
A day did not go by without an "I Love You". We enjoyed our many travels together and even doing food shopping together. We were soul mates.
I am so afraid of going on with life without him.
I have absolutely NO regrets. He died without pain and he was very happy.
How lucky I was to have known and married him.
I miss you my Sweetie

We Lived A Real Love Story
by: Karen

To everyone that posts here, I am so sorry for your loss. Each of us understands the torment that we each live with 24/7. This heartache and grief is indescribable. No amount of words from anyone stops the pain or makes it better.

The love of my life died June 21, 2011. Friday is the second anniversary of his sudden death due to a massive heart attack beside me at 3:11 a.m. As I approach the second anniversary of his death, I am still in pain, grieving, and feel so alone. I know that no amount of time will ever take this pain away. Rich was the love of my life. We were together from the day we met until the moment he died 15 years later. We were meant to be together. Rich was and is everything to me; my other half; the man of my dreams; my hero; my soul mate and my protector. July 1 is our anniversary. Rich, I love you and will always love you.

your sadness
by: Lawrence

We are all afraid to face our future lives without the one we loved more than life itself but we do, there is no alternative
Our horrible grief stricken and lonely life is a reality, but remember your words that you spent” twenty years together in bliss”, so many married couples never achieve anything like that, so count your blessings and thank God for giving you such happiness.
Needless to say we are all grieving badly on this website at the loss of a precious partner and it is only time that makes our loss bearable.
I am into my sixth’s month since my beloved wife died after being together for nearly seventy years and I am just about able to look at her smiling photograph without crying but the tears are never far from the surface.
It is very early days for you; we all remember and sympathize for the agony and pain you are now going through.
Just take it one day at a time, the exhaustion and loss of concentration are just a few of the many symptoms of grief.
Read all the stories on this site, they will help, they certainly helped me.
Seek help if the pain gets too bad.

Love from a friend
by: Jean

Andrea, I have known you for many years, since you were in 10th grade and I was a very young teacher. We were privileged to meet Bob on two occasions, and to spend happy times with you both. You were indeed soul mates. I understand your fear of going on alone. I have no solution except to emphasize that your friends are with you - some physically; all emotionally and spiritually.

Andrea and Bob have been good friends of ours. We have travelled together, laughed together and shared our inner thoughts with each other. Bob was a renaissance man who had insight into just about everything. Andrea was his muse. We will miss Bob dearly and will help Andrea recover from her terrible grief.
We love you dearest.
