4 years

heydeborah

well today i have been a widow for 4 years. my son and i went to the cemetery together today. i usually walk the 8 miles round trip everyday and our son goes everyother day by himself. A usually bought me yellow roses on special occasions today we bought him a dozen of them. they probably froze in 5 minutes since its so cold here. it was a very weepy time, most of the time i'm ok, but today we both weren't. it was all that snow and all those "monuments as they call them here and that long straight road that we drove in. i remember that day the hearse all those cars coming to the service. today is just too much for me to handle. i also remember them turning off the life support when i asked them too, i wonder if thing =s would have been different. probably note, please take the time to do something nice for a stranger tomorrow, hold the door open for someone, smile at them, this is something my Al taught me to do!

Love you Mr. Husband! debbie

Heydeborah,
God bless you and your son on this sad day. Mine is also 4 years ago (last Nov.), how time flies. I get really sad for what he is missing and what I am missing, his presence, his voice, his love. I still can't believe it is real that I have been without hime for 4 years, I never thought I would make it but life doesn't give you a choice. Just had to say hi to you.
