  1. I am at 13 years out and I can say that my grief is healed. There has not been a day that I have not thought about my late wife, but I can look at memories with her and smile. Thoughts of her do not result in tears or sadness. I still miss her but I have survived through the horrible grief. Life is good. Different, but good. It was not easy, but here I am. I hope that healing finds you too.
  2. It has been 13 years for me. YWBB was a life saver at times for me which is why I keep Widda.org alive. Be sure to check out the old YWBB posts in the Clubs Directory. I hope things go well for you as you remember those rough days years ago.
  3. Hi soloact! Be sure to check out the Old YWBB Website in the Clubs section. It is just viewable but all the old posts are there. -Lewis
  4. Hi CJF, glad you found the site! Unfortunately there is not a lot going on here. With Facebook and other ways to communicate, the site does not have the traffic it once had. Not to mention that the site was down for about a year which really messed things up. Anyhow, I am glad you found the site and its valuable history of posts. Be sure to check out the former YWBB posts where you can view all the posts from the old site!
  5. You can find the old YWBB under the Clubs link above to view these and all other posts on the old site.
  6. There are a klot of us that are getting old, doh!
  7. I wonder if it is on the old ywbb? I'll have to search the archives.
  8. Hi Everyone, I will be leading a group of non-grieving people in a discussion about what we as grievers would like for them to know about grieving. I thought it would be good to open the topic in case you had thoughts that I could add to my discussion. These are people who care and want to help, but to not know what to do, say, or how to act around us. Do you have any thoughts to add to my discussion?
  9. It is true! Click the Clubs link in the menu above and join the club to gain access to view the YWBB posts.

    Having a broken heart from the loss of my wife, I found that God used many people to help comfort my five young children and me. Family, friends and my local church came to our rescue many times as we were in a desperate mode of survival. There were even random strangers that offered kind words at times when we desperately needed encouragement. As I have many memories of love and encouragement that I received in my time of grief, I also remember times when I would get unwanted philosophies or vein attempts at easing the mood. I am convinced that each odd conversation was meant to comfort, but in reality made my emotional state worse. Some think that you have to say something to help the grieving, while others offer availability to do anything if the grieving just calls them. Neither of these responses is bad, they just do not necessarily help the grieving. A quickly spoken cliché may be like a dagger in the heart; and an option to call will likely pass as an empty offer that will never happen. Realizing that our culture does not know what to do with those in grief, I hope this forum offers comfort into the grieving mind from others in our same grief. Lewis
  11. Thanks for asking Christine. If you want to send via PayPal, you can send to my account at admin@widda.org. Let me know if you still have problems.
  12. Hello Everyone, Widda.org has been online for several years now and I am amazed at how many people have been helped through this website! It has been a couple of years since I have mentioned about donating to Widda.org to help keep the site free. At that time many people donated enough to give the website a nice upgrade and to help pay the hosting fees that lasted until now. If you desire to help pay the fees to keep the site free, now would be a good time to donate. I currently pay the bill monthly, but can get a better pricing if I pay in longer time frames. Any amount you donate is appreciated and will go toward the Widda.org website hosting and maintenance fees. Thank you for your support! If you choose to donate, you can donate here: DONATE Thank you for your help!! Lewis
