you know its strange you brought this out Terry but thank you. I was answering an email from a friend and this just popped in my mind and I just had to tell him so now will share with yall.
it is true a big ol piece of us dies with our spouse on that day but then on that same day we are reborn (but cant see the forest yet cause nature takes over) so after everything is over everyone has went back to their lives and were all alone and weve taken many baby steps to get here. only then do we start to see the forest through all the fog from all the tears weve shed and still do.But Im only 21 months old now in my new world yes their is days were you just don't feel like doing nothing but life and time is to short and we have no control over what happens. Hospice has been a great help on my road and always will from this point on, I have a lot to learn still and the roller coaster ride is still going but not as fast and up and down and I answer to everyone when they ask how im doing all I can say is better than before . again Terry thank you it was a good read  :love4:

hello Frank and welcome to WH your at the right place at the right time and as everyone has said and pointed out you need to take care of Frank now, this my friend is the hardest journey of your life, and it I lost my spouse of 35 yrs to lung cancer in 2012 the day I died as well but being gay with no children well that's place only I can go and others like me but we all loved the same way but we all grive differently yes uve been their where you are and its not a nice place but it will get better Im a loner always have been and we lived a very private life with little friends and the friends we had were all in the brick mason work and Doyle was the mason so you know where that left me. I put my nose in books (his death was very sudden due to a missed tumor)but before the cancer he fell off a ladder at work and shattered his femer and tiba and that let to 2 new knees and finally amputation but he was a trooper with all that. your not going crazy and dont hurt yourself with all the woulda shoulda coulda that you had no control over Im so sorry to hear of your Hospice experenice as I am a hospice voulenteer and Im the person here in my county that makes that call to the newly bereaved family I don't know what could have happened in your case and that not what hospice wants to hear I wish I could help you their. music and books worked for me in the beginning and doing hospice is a big help I can tell you this you and your family can get up to a year of counseling from hospice at no cost to you or your family and this is core policy again sorry we had to meet this way but your here for a reason and we all are very you are here. may God speed you to a healthy recovery  :engel2:

Time has marched on since I first got here and it seems like yesterday,so many changes, so much to reflect on the good times the bad and all in between. it will be 20 months and it can be another 20 yrs and the pain will stay, we have no choice of the matter as im finding out. so I just roll with it cross that bridge when I get to it and try to make the most of what life has instore for me,  Im sure in time I will figure it out but for now still one day at a time, becoming a Hospice Volunteer has help me along this journey more than I know how to explain it. it just gives you a warm feeling inside knowing just being their for them in their last days is all it takes.
no matter how long I walk on the earth my relationship with Doyle will never die and I will wait till we meet again. thanks for listening and remember we are all here for the same reason JB :engel2:  :love4:

DaveB I think we all are still frozen in time on that date and always will be but im finding that change is the key just gradual small changes but we never know the bridge were gonna cross until we get their but being a hospice volunteer has helped me and they are always looking for volunteers and they train you and it works out pretty good I do hope you peace. and and Like my Doyles aunt told me at when I buried him you have to let go so they can rest in peace old Indian proverb.
ps Terry I know I should not post here but just wanted to answer dave many thanks Johnb :love4:
