    So sorry for the loss of your friend. I also am trying to learn to live alone. Had a sweet marriage to a dear man. I have been trying to figure out the nagging feeling I have had. You named it so very clearly. Being left behind!! I am suppose to be with him. What happened??

    Dear Wendy, thank you so much for taking your time to respond. You are wise. I feel heard and much less invisible!! Thanks again

    Wow! Just attended a new grief support group and said to the facilitator that no one ever tells you when you marry how to prepare to say goodbye. Unless the Lord takes you both home at the same time one of you will be left alone! I also experience the same feelings that you have had when I try to do something new. It makes me miss my husband more. You are very brave to be taking this trip alone! I know he is so very proud of you!!

    Just read your thoughts today. This is my first July 4 the without my husband. That line about the longer its been since they died the more you miss them is the truth in my life! I don’t think if I miss him more I can tolerate it. I am a belie er, so I have the comfort that I will see him again. However that fact does not help the longing to be with him now and everyday. I have not had an easy life so I know what pain is. But I really did not know you could be in this much emotional pain and still be alive!!! I see a greif counselor and can share my thoughts with her so it keeps me from going over the edge, barely! I am so sorry for your loss. I hate to think how you suffer.

    Profound and raw. I love your truth. They are physically missed and the desire to have them back is agonising!
