Loss

On July 6, 2012 I lost the love of my life. It is difficult for me to comprehend the purpose for my life, especially at 77 years of age. God controls but like many other Americans I struggle with trying to figure out how I am supposed to go on with the process of life?

Re: Loss

I am so sorry for your loss. I wish I had just the right comforting words for you, but as you already know, when you lose the love of your life it is hard to find a good reason to carry on. I urge you to find a grief group in your area where you can be supported, and you can be a support system for others. I wish you the very best.

I am not sure what to tell you, but I am sure that you have a reason to live. Do you have children or grandchildren? They will need you now. My mother passed away 4 days after your wife. She died on July 10, 2012. My mother was 73 at the time. My father is still alive and I visit him often. He is taking things day by day and we both have struggled through the holidays and my mother's birthday. Although my mother had cancer it was shrinking and she was doing better. She passed away very unexpectedly. Being as close to my mother as I was and still am its been very difficult. I have tried to do things to honor her memory. I have come to realize that our time on earth is fleeting and what we do while we are here is the important thing. We all will be reunited someday and you will see your wife again soon. Take time each day to thank God for something. Whether it be your health, the weather, your family....whatever it is thank God for each day. You are important in God's world and you do make a difference.
