Hi. I am so sorry for all the others that have had cause to seek out a website on loss/death. I lost my husband of 30+ years on June 24, 2020 when he fell while hiking and cut his head open. Ugh the suddenness is grueling, isn’t it??!!!!! I just signed up for this site and hope to find some “fellowship” here because the loneliness is brutal. My faith is strong but I just feel sooooooo lonely at times. It’s terrible and debilitating. I got a doggy in December. Our anniversary was Dec. 24 and that was also the 6-month anniversary of his death/accident, as well as Christmas Eve!! So I wanted a dog to keep me company by then. I could only talk to my houseplants for so long. So I have a precious Border Collie that I’m very grateful for - even when he’s being a rat! I hope I can find some friendship here with others in ths same awful arena.
