I am 48 years old. My husband of 3 years died very suddenly 4 days ago at the age of 52 after an otherwise wonderful day. Nothing makes sense yet and though I know he is gone it still doesn't seem real.

I am 46 and my husband of 3 years died 10 days ago at the end of a very pleasant day. I can't make sense of it yet, but know that he is with God and that brings comfort. I miss him, his laugh, his touch, his love. Knowing with him that everything was going to be okay and that life was an adventure. He filled the house with laughter and now it is filled with sadness and emptiness, but this will be filled with laughter again in time. I am sorry for your loss and have a deeper understanding of those friends and co-workers who have lost loved ones before me. This is a process and I am sure that I can make it, just will take time. Chin up, we would say here, so that is what I am trying to do.... God Bless us all!

I'm so sorry for the loss of your Husband.
There are different stages of grief.
Take it one day at a time.
You are not alone. God is with you.
Stay connected with God and with people.
(I'm praying for you.)

Nobody can tell you why - even if you know how, it doesn't answer the "why".
My darling hs been gone 2 years on the 20th November - and I still wonder why he had to go.
He was a lovely man, but I would much rather he go than suffer on after his stroke - he died within three days.
It will take you a long time before you realise that it is real - for at least three months I could not do the most simple things - one of my grandsons asked me how to make instant gravy - I did not know how to do it!
Even now - my mind just goes blank sometimes - I couldn't, for instance, hold down a job with too much responsibility, even though I used to manage an engineering business. I have too many blank moments, when I just do not want to do anything.
Keep visiting this site - it can be your sounding board, you will meet good people, it is open 24/7 -and mostly, just take care - remember all the good times you had together - you will make it.
