I have been a recent visitor to this web page and have spent a great deal of time reading the messages posted here and I am simply overwhelmed by all of the wonderful people here.
We have all had to deal with the pain of death and losing our partners...till death do us part...has come much too soon for all of us.
I was widowed on May 27th, 1999. It was the day before my husband's 30th birthday. After months of fighting a losing battling with a drug addiction, Danny ended his own life. He left no note and never said goodbye. Our children were 4 and not quite 2. It was the most devasting time in my life.
Two years later, I have come to realize that from his death, I have also been reborn. I "live". No more do I just exist in this life. Every kiss, every hug, every "I love you" I get from my children, my family and friends....every wonderful word, every wonderful moment...I now cherish and I am thankful for. I have come to realize that I am strong and I can do things on my own. I make things happen instead of waiting for them to.
Of course, I have my moments when the sadness and emptiness over come me and bring me to my knees...but that is when I will come to you and I hope you will come to me.
Hugs and kisses,
