Since it is exactly 8 years for me today, I'm bumping this up again.

Hug, Wifeless.

I'm less than a month from 8 years into widowhood myself.

These words say so much. Thank you!

Thank you for posting that. I know I am not the only one, but never thought I would be so affected this way. I have never let anyone as close as I let Minh. Just wished for more time, even if it was only a few more months.

After almost 5 years I can't believe that I never read this before today.  Beautifully written, unbelievably on point and excruciatingly emotional.

Thank you Wifeless

I had not seen this before. It was a Godsend to read this today on the first anniversary of my wife's death.

This resonates to me so much because not only did we share those bonds, but he literally had a piece of me. I was his kidney organ donor 11 years ago, so we bonded even so much more after that.

I truly hope these feelings of loss, emptiness, guilt and overall sadness do go away or at least lessen over time.
