Time is and will be your friend. I feel for you and hope for the best for you. As you mentioned, this forum was my only outlet to the world and was my lifesaver. You don't need to get over it, but you will get used to it with time. Best wishes. Steve aka Callshot

We all assume we are going to be the ones to check out first, but 10 years ago my wife of 45 years past on. Talk about being lonely... I sure do miss her.. Not only my wife but hunting buddies, fishing buddies, and sailing buddies. The herd is thinning. No friends to play with any longer. And 3 years ago I died for 30 minutes. I guess they took a look at me and sent me back.. So often wonder?? Am I now 3 or 83?? :)

Hi Bob,
My folks were together for 58 years. Mom went first and it was a big shock. Dad had heart issues etc.
I can't say I understand exactly but can imagine a little as my kids get older and want less to do with their old dad. Empty nest sounds good on paper but really it is a lot of hours of your day to fill.
My uncle (dad's brother) lost his wife to cancer a long time ago. He was always involved with his church and seemed after it kept him going. You may have heard the expression "work wife", seems he friended a woman at church and helped her and her husband do things and run arrands etc. (To be clear not a romantic thing but still a type of love there / Friendship.)
Sorta rambling and this may sound weird, don't read this wrong but I hope I can have a love like my folks, my uncle, and you some day.

This forum has gotten me through tough times. Lots of good people here. Feel free to vent anytime. Even a small note to say hi is sometimes all it takes.

I wish you the best. Take care, Roy

Bob our pastor's wife went home very suddenly (2 weeks) early 60s ran 1/2 marathons. He has expressed his struggles many times before the congregation. You are still in my prayers for grace and comfort.
