Thinking of you and hoping that your tomorrows bring some calm and peace.......I know too well as others do to the pain never really goes away but some days it is less than others.

Sorry for your loss of your precious husband.
Welcome to the site, although I wish no one had to be here either. You will find much support, understanding and love here. It is a place where you can express your feelings with no judgement.  I understand the "support system thing",  I still have "friends" that avoid me just because they don't know what to do or say and it has been a year already, hard for me to beleive my husband, Bill has been gone that long, seems like it just happened.
There is alot of anger for me still, it is part of what professionals will call "The process", although I know everyones grief is different to a degree, there are still most things that are the same..........guilt, sadness, anger and feelings of being overwelmed.  I hope we all can make it through one day at a time.
May you find some peace and calm in the days, weeks and months ahead.........

Hi Jean,

Sorry for the loss of your husband and mother in law, it is a hard, long journey ahead for you, but you will find great support and love on this site. With no one to judge how bad or good you are feeling at any time.
Take baby steps, one day at a time, and know that sometimes it is one step forward and 10 steps back.
Welcome, although I wish none of us had to be here...........

Congrats to your daughter and to you for helping her get there!
I agree with everyone else that the grief will never go away, it just gets put on hold and comes back when important milestones are hit in our lives, always the wishing and hoping that our loved ones were with us to share the good things that happen in our lives.
May you find peace and calm in the days ahead.


Thank you all so much.  It has been a hard road for us, Matt is having a really hard time right now and had what the doctors are calling a breakdown last week.  He passed out at school, hit his head now has a concussion and some memory loss.  Poor guy, it's just all catching up to him I think, he is back in therapy and trying hard to work through some issues.  This has been a roller coaster ride for me and a journey I wish we didn't have to take.
Me, I am hanging in there by a thread! That's my update, wish ot were better than it is.
Hoping for us and all of you that the next days, weeks and months bring some calm and peace..........



Hoping your memories have carried you through the day .........thinking of you and wishing your precious Robert a Heavenly Birthday. Hope you had a good lunch and were able to share some good memories.

Thank you!
He had a great time and there was a little party at his girlfriends house after the prom that the parents were invited to as well.  It was wonderful for me to see him smiling and laughing with his friends again.
I think he is finally finding some calm and peace, that makes me happy.

As I watch my son, Matt getting ready for his Jr. Prom, the smiles turn to tears and back to smiles.
Can't help it, he's growing into such a fine young man and even after all he has been through this passed year, the loss of his Dad and Cousin he truly is remarkable.
Yet I can't help feeling sad that Bill is not here to see what a wonderful young man he is becoming.
I guess this is just one of many events in life that I will feel this...........

First I am sorry for the loss of your husband.........this is long and tough journey as we here have all found out. 
I was so taken back by the whole thing and words were said in front of my son, Matt is only 16 and we've had a tough go of things this passed 10 months. I tried to keep things as "normal" as I could, not hiding anything from him but trying to show him that our lives are different but we still do have to live, not the same as before.  I was able to sit and talk everything out with my son later that night, he seems to be ok now.
I will continue to wear my rings unteil I am ready to take them off. 
I do realize most people just don't understand and I'm ok when they don't know what to say, it's when they feel they know what is best and force their opinions that annoys me......
Anyway I'm sure this to will pass!

Jason & Stampingwidow,
Thanks for your responses. Good advice is always welcome and I do try to understand where others in my family are coming from.  I did try to explain what I am feeling and how hard it has been for me at times, I will always try to be here for Matt, he will always be my first concern.  Matt seems to be much better and a little more accepting of the death of his father, the fact that he is only 16 and is very quiet anyway makes it difficult at times to get his true feelings out, which was frustrating my family to begin with. 
I will try in a few days to put my feelings on paper and send them a letter, that may help, as I realize the face to face can become confrontational........thanks for the advice.

Thanks Lisa!
I was just so taken by the whole was like some weird intervention thing.  It wasn't just over the rings, just the whole conversation. I think it was just an awkward situation and when my sister started too it just really pissed me off. I did very calmly at first say there are no rules and what is right for one person is not for another, but only after she told me her co-worker was dating after six months and it was time.......blah blah blah that's when I lost it. I cried I yelled and I'll get over it at some point.
Hope we all find some peace in our days ahead.
This is one journey I wish no one had to take, it's hard and painful.
