Guys,I have asked for your help before. You have always made me feel like I belonged, and like you really cared. This is the first Christmas since my wife died last April. I thought that I was doing pretty well, but the last couple of weeks have made me realize that I am only fooling myself. I am so lonely without her. My life seems really empty. My kids are great support, and I love em alot. But nothing has replaced those arms around me, or the knowledge that someone cared and loved me more than themself.

If you are so inclined I wish that you would say a few words for me in the next few days. I am gonna need em. Dennis

Hang in there Brother.  Time will heal our wounds.  The more grievous wounds will heal as well, but will take more time.

Trust in the Lord - you're taking the right steps.

Dennis a year ago I went to give my father in-law some water and food as he was an acoholic and was trying to drink himself to death!

I gave him water on sat and on sunday he was gone,he was a teacher and a fine man looked and acted like Gregory Peck just everybody loved him,but he didn't love himself!

Now we all miss him and love him!

I don't know how this can be used in the way that your wife is gone now,except that she loved you so much that her love should be enough to make you know that she is here now within you ,and would want you to embrace those that are of you and her!

Love is a gift,and freely given is returned ten fold!   For seventeen years I have had no one to hold,by my own doings!  

I don't think nor wish for you to end up like me,but only to wish that you understand you are only alone if you wish to be!

Ever see those people wandering about speaking to everyone as if they know no strangers,they are not alone!  Not my style but just what you need, get out there and get into life!

Find a youth group that needs a lift,older folks that need a light switch fixed,even have you ever wondered where those people that wall mart hires to say hey dude whats up?

Get out and get envolved and before you know it you will have new friends and new problems again,such is life!

Get into it ,embrace it and live again!

I can only imagine how hard it is for you.  Every day I am more aware of how precious my bride is to me.  Although I know that in the next life we will rejoice together before our Heavenly Father's throne, I dread the day of parting.  We have become part of each other, and as such I empathize with you.

Dear Heavenly Father, I pray that your Spirit will settle within Dennis and give him the comfort of knowing how much you love and care for him, just as You love his dear wife.

I pray for your peace to be upon him and his family in this difficult time, and that you will impart to him the hope that only you can provide.

Remember...you have many, many things to rejoyce if you just think about it a little bit.

Peace be with you, Brother.

A friend of mine lost his wife the 21st of this month.  I don't think I can imagine how hard it will be for him.  One thing I do know is that God will carry us through anything, just allow yourself to lean on Him.  You are in my prayers.

Is there a widowers group around you could go to? My GF's grandpa went to one after his wife passed away. It was a great comfort to him and he met a lady friend and is happy again. And of course its not a replacement but any spouse would want their other to be happy again. She knows you love her, dont forget that. But if you can, GO! The people there know exactely what your feeling. Take care of yourself.
