Spouse, Partner Loss / Recent Loss of My Wife
« on: January 29, 2019, 09:42:52 AM »

I am new to this site, and unfortunately I am now a widower. I lost my wife of 25 years on 1/1/19. She was only 64. She died of COPD. She was in bed for the last 18 months of her life and I was able to work from home and take care of her. We knew her death was coming and we were able to reminisce about our life together over the last few months of her life. I held her hand as she took her last breath. We met later in life and instantly had an attraction. We were inseparable over our 25 years. We were soulmates and she was the love of my life. She was my best friend, my lover, and I am a better person because of her. Until her death, that I am crushed. My heart is broken and it is hard for me to think of life without her. I have gone through old pictures and home movies with an unquenchable thirst for seeing her and hearing her voice. She saved many of our old Valentine and Anniversary cards, which I have read over and over. It gives me comfort to see and hear her, but it also hurts because I know she is gone. I hold her pillows and her clothing, because she had such a beautiful scent. I am so incredibly sad and I struggle every day with just getting up and doing things. Life just seems so empty now. Any words of wisdom from fellow grievers would be appreciated, because I am feeling like I am going to die from a broken heart.
