When you wish upon a star

by Ann
(Toronto, Ontario, Canada)

My husband and I met 23 years and were immediately smitten with each other. I waited a long time to find him and he was the love of my life. We did a lot of stuff together but particularly loved anything Disney. This past summer we went on the Disney Fantasy and had a great time.
We were preparing for a pre-Christmas trip to Florida on Nov. 23 for 3 weeks and then 2 cruises in late January (including Disney Wonder). On Nov. 20, 2012 I went out to get my hair done for the trip leaving my husband happily playing Nintendo. When I got home 2 hours later I found his passed away on the bed, his ankles still crossed - it was a heart attack brought on by diabetic complications.
I miss him so incredibly much. I am so sad over the things that he didn't get to do that he was so looking forward to doing. I don't want our sports teams to do well as he is not here to see it happen.
This is a real roller coaster of emotions. Some days are good, same days are bad. it's been kind of tough since Valentine's Day.
I try to take one day at a time and with him looking down from heaven to help me through this I know I will make it.
thanks for listening to this story. our dream did come true for 23 wonderful years that I would not trade for anything. I just wish it could have been for longer.

Ann I am sorry for your loss of your husband to a sudden death. It is such a tragedy. just going about your daily business and to return home to this sad loss which turned your life upside down. I lost my husband of 44yrs. 10 months ago to cancer and he didn't want to die. he was looking forward to his retirement and doing some fun things he earned from his working life of 47yrs. This is what hurts the most. Like UNFINISHED BUSINESS. It makes me evaluate life now. thinking of all our possessions and why we need to accumulate so much in life when we leave it all behind. I am busy now getting rid of all we accumulated. Life is not easy when we lose our life partner. We have to start living a new kind of life whether we want to or not. Death leaves us crushed like nothing we have ever experienced before. Yet we rise to meet a new day and hope we are nearer to Healing from our loss. May God be with you and comfort you.
