My name is Ted.. I am on this page looking for something a little different..I dont want a huge audience to listen to how much I cried yesterday because I saw my wifes dress in the closet.. I did cry and I do want to say those things to someone but I want to talk to a woman who has had these feelings herself over the loss of a husband and wants to talk one on one with me like my wife did.. That is what I lost when she died.. It was not the ability to express myself to a crowd of sad lonely people..This letter will probably be received poorly by some as they may think I am making light of their need for group therapy and social contacts.. I am not making light of it.. Its just not my need and I am expressing what my need is.. Cathy(my wife of 34 yrs) died of breast cancer less than 2 miserable months ago..and although I know I can never put that behind me.. (nor do I completely want to) I do want to lay it down beside me in some kind of place that does not destroy what is left of me..
I would love to talk to a female..not unlike my beautiful sweet wife was that can make me feel a little better with their friendship and I can do the same for them...
thank you .. any of you or all of you who are not offended or outraged that I can say these things so soon after losing my wife..
