Kathy, I check in every other day or so but rarely post anymore. You can see by my signature that my kids are doing well.
I'm so sorry to hear about your husband's death. He was very special on this forum and helped alot of people.
My husband died unexpectedly last July from a heart attack. Like you, we were married almost 25 years. Like you, he always told me and the kids how much he loved us. It's that love that keeps me going every day. No matter how hard it gets or how down I feel, I am grateful for having him in my life for the time I did. It wasn't enough and it wasn't what we planned, but I'm lucky we found each other.
So for your husband and mine, I'll make my hugs extra strong. Please accept my cyberhug to you!
