Just lost my husband at 54. New to this group.
« on: May 30, 2016, 04:05:14 PM »
Hi, I lost my husband three weeks ago to cancer just three months after his being diagnosed. We were deeply in love and I am struggling very much being back in our home after returning from living in the hospital and hospice with him. I miss his physical presence and don't know how I will get through the grief. Thanks.
