    Default Sad day

    One year ago today, I lost my best friend, my dear husband. We had been married 48 years, 3 months and 3 days. We are going to Indiantown Gap National Cemetery today to be with him -- at least for a couple of minutes as the wind is really blowing. When I get back home, I will spend the rest of the day, quietly, by myself. It has been a difficult year, but has gotten a little easier to deal with his loss every day. People keep telling me good times are coming --- can't wait until they do.

    Have a great day

    Nancy

    Hi, Nancy ~ I also hope better days are ahead for you. The grieving definitely takes time, and one really never "gets over it." One of my friends who lost who husb. to cancer said she thought the 2nd year was almost harder than the first. I hope that will not be the case for you. Cherish the memories.

    Anniversary dates of the death of a loved one are always difficult. Allow yourself a day or week, or whatever, of mourning each year. This is normal and part of the grieving process. Take it as a time to honor their life and the joy of the times you spent with them.

    My prayers are with you.
