I am devastated, I just don't want to go forward any more. I'm done, I want to go join her.  :'(

I don't know you, but I just read this and it hit home. I will be praying for you. When confronted with the horror of death it is hard to rationalize life. Everything can seem so hopeless. But it isn't. And there is hope and there is joy in both remembrance and your continued story.

I'd invite you to give yourself grace to be devastated and be okay with that and try and schedule times where you are going to take care of yourself (eating, being with others and washing cloths and so on).

You might try reading "A Grief Observed" by C.S. Lewis in a month or two. It is about him loosing his wife's and really shows his love for his wife and his journey in reconciling his life with the pain he felt.

Will be praying and again, I am so sorry for your loss. Though I don't know you, you are always welcome to msg me should you want prayers or anything else.

Cole,
I am chiming in again.. ::)
I can understand your thoughts because I have pondered it often myself.
If Hoosier Momma passes before me, I will be lost....Completely devastated... I simply never want to imagine your grief.
BUT...She would want me to carry on.

Keeping you in my prayers.

We're all in the same boat, why're you trying to make holes?

My heartfelt condolences to you in your time of grief. Remember the good times when you can. My sweetheart and I have been together 40 years. I can't imagine life without her.

My thoughts, prayers and condolences are with you. Although I have not been where you are right now I have thought about it alot. My wife has an incurable disease and was given 14 months to live. Thank God that was 3.5 years ago and with advances in medical trials she's still doing fine. But I have thought about losing her and how I will survive that almost constantly for the entire time. Not easy but I hope you find the strength to go on. I'm sure that's what she would want. On another note I lost my best friend of almost 50 years the other day. Not the same as losing your wife but not easy either.

The only thing I can imagine being harder than the death of a spouse is the death of a child. I have a firm belief that the moment a person dies it is up to the ones who love them to keep them alive. The body dies but as long as they are remembered by their loved ones they keep living. I lost both sets of grandparents and my parents at a relatively young age but there's not a day goes by that I don't talk to one or more of them in my mind. I never miss an opportunity to tell someone who didn't know them about them and the love they gave to me. As long as their remembered they are never gone.

I'm very sorry for your loss, I can't imagine the pain. If you need to talk, please call I always have time for a friend. PM if you need my number.
I lost a son last year, it is hard, but the rest of the family still needs me and the love and smiles from them makes me know it will be ok.
