Phil, I am very sorry. These significant dates are really tough, just hold on and ride it out. I remember much of the panic and anxiety; facing the rest of our lives without our spouse is pretty damn scary.

The only schedule you have to follow right now is your own. You will know when you are ready to scatter Jo's ashes. There is no need to put any additional pressure on yourself.

Phil,
I'm so sorry that you are suffering so much.  People surrounding us really don't understand all of the turmoil and the range of emotions that we experience.  I'll echo what Justin says...this is your loss, your grief, your schedule.  It took me 18 months to bury half of my husband's ashes next to his late wife.  I still have the other half with me, even though I have a cemetery plot and a headstone here locally.  You do what YOU want, when you are ready...or never, if that is what you decide.

Hugs,

Maureen
Life is short.  Love with all you've got.

Just like Justin said you do what you want , when you want
you just try and get through the day as well as you can
I had someone spread some of my dons ashes in alsaka (where he loved to fly fish)
but I still have the rest and when I am ready will spread them
I am sorry you lost your wife Jo

It is unbearable but we somehow somehow bear it.  I'm so sorry for your loss and the intense beyond-words pain.  We all know your feelings and are with you in spirit.  I too had extraordinary love with an extraordinary individual, and I knew from the beginning I was so lucky and always would be, even though he died.  I hope that the love you shared will bring you light and comfort rather than the opposite, as time goes forward.  For now, just survive (and don't give yourself a drug problem!).  Thinking of you.  Wishing you moments of solace.

((((Phil)))) Keep breathing. I'm so very sorry that you're going through this... the road through hell is dark and awful, but there are hands to hold along the way. Just hold on...
