    Just trying to survive the death of my husband. It's so difficult. Going to a support group at Hospice and it should help. Having a Celebration of Life in his memory on Saturday with some friends. Aside from that I am just taking one day at a time. I wish I could wake up and find this is just some horrible nightmare.

    My sincere regrets and deepest condolences on the loss of your husband, Paul. If it's any consolation I think you are taking the right steps by going to a support group. A Celebration of Life is an excellent idea also and it will help your close friends share their memories of him. My heartfelt sympathies go out to you. :hugs:

    I'm so sorry for your loss. My deepest condolences to you and your family. :hugs:
    My great-uncle had a Celebration of Life and it was a lovely service and I think it's a good idea. I hope you can find comfort in your support group and if you ever want to vent or post about how you feel here at TCS whether publicly or privately, don't hesitate to do so.

    I'm so sorry, Lana. I can't imagine how difficult it must be after being together for so long. :hugs: I think it's very wise to have joined a support group.

    ~ Yes this will definitely help you . Also do not be hesitant in asking Hospice for the names of grief counselors/psychologists in your area.
    Remember we are all on the same path ... your husband just left before the rest of us . :rbheart::angel3:
