Never Stop Loving

I lost my sweet husband 14 years ago. He went to work one day and never came back. Died in a trucking accident. I have dated occasionally in the past years, but gave up when it never measured up. I am so sorry to hear the stories of recent widows on this page and wish I could make it better. I have been living in the past for all these years and wish I could have it all back. But I can't. I can't seem to move past his death and I know it would make him terribly unhappy to see me like this. If there is one thing I encourage you all to do....love him, remember him and cherish what you had. But move on and love again when you can. Leave yourself open for it. Living in the past is a lonely existence and you deserve more. Loving again is not a betrayal of what you had. Bless you all and I wish you peace.

I read your story and I'm really sorry it just shows how much you loved him. Mine has not been as long he has been gone year and half now and not a day goes by without thinking and wishing he was here with me. Things seem to get harder by the day good evveryine tells me its gets easier but I don't believe that. He was my love and do you go on without. Life just seems like hell to me. I hope you can find some happiest or a reason to keep trying.

you dont know how much I cried when I read your story. I lost both my new baby girl(just had given birth, lived for 18 minutes) and my husband the same day (Sep 15/1999) I feel lost and stuck to my past. I just want to hold them both. I cant date even though I tried still. I truly understand your pain
