i too lost mu husband just over a year ago. i thought that the pain will subside but it hasn't.I have two teenagers who miss their father terribly.Especially my son who was so close to his father.He is seventeen now and i find it hard to be mother and father.I try to find strength wihin myself. i know the pain on lonliness even when you are surrounded by great family and friends.There is always someone missing and the emptiness of loss. I am trying hard to get on with my life without my husband of 23 years.i am only 46 years old and have a lot to offer the world. I know I have to find the strength to go on even though i can cry at a drop of a hat. I still have my good days and some really hard days.I call up a friend or family member when I am down and they cheer me up, even if it is only momentarily. I, too, feel WHY ME! But, why not me. i am no different than anyone else.My husband died suddenly, with no warning, of a heart attack.I sometimes find comfort in just looking at his picture and talk to him about the children.I love and miss him very much and take comfort in knowing that he loved my most in the world and that makes me go on. how lucky I was to have known him.
