I'm feeling a bit of your pain. My husband died from a heart attack a year ago. He was only 41 and we thought he was in great health.
Do you have kids? I know that my inlaws had some fear that they would also lose me and their grandchildren. I try my best to assure them of our love and loyalty toward them. We talk about Leo with good memories, but rarely about his death. It is still way to raw for me, and I expect for them. I sent all of my in-law relations a copy of the slide show we made for the memorial service. Everyone was happy about it, but most confessed they were still waiting for the right time to watch it.
I think you will love being with them, because it will a little bit like those wonderful old times together.
I, too, am desperatly lonely and I'm afraid I don't have much advice. I just got done crying in my bedroom and decided to see if there was any online support group to help with the loneliness.
I hope this helps in some small way.
