    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.

    Sorry for your loss. The loneliness is definitely one of the worse parts of the grief. Especially when you're use to always having someone there. Praying for your strength and im here anytime you want to chat

    Hi I understand the loneliness is the worst. My husband and I have adult sons who still live with us. We didnt mind at all. I lost him on March 8th from sudden cardiac arrest. We were together for over 40 years. I always imagined that when our sons left we would resume our live together just the two of us. Now that he is gone the thought of my sons moving out has me petrified.
