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.
