I'm a 63 year old recent widow who is having a hard time getting through my grief. I do not have any support network. After the funeral everyone disappeared, leaving me to go through this alone. Its a rough road to travel with friends to support you, but even rougher to try to do it alone.
I joined this community to help get me through the grieving process and to meet people who will become new friends who won't desert me.
My husband died of cancer 8/24/07. We were married for the 2nd time on 2/23/07. We had 6 months together, we thought we'd have more time but the cancer spread like a wildfire after we got married. I was his only caregiver, he died at home holding my hand. His last words to me were "Goodnight, I love you." We had been together for 21 years, even after our first marriage ended. He truly believed that we were destined by God to be together and I agree with him.
I really miss him and his presence. I had one dream about him and one bizzare happening in my house that I'll go into some other time.
