I went to synagogue and said Kaddish for you. :
Thank you for the life we shared together.
Life is a gift. We shared our lives. It was a true gift.
Reading it has been very emotional for me. Your words and the respect you show for relationships is inspirational to me.
I wish you and your children continued love and light.
I have been to Israel this year to make an aliyah and celebrate the sixtieth anniversary of its independence.
I secreted out some rocks and soil that have been placed dutifully on his grave, so that he can in some way be in Jerusalem as he rests.
Your post about finally spreading your own DH's ashes reminded me of my recent trip, to the Promised Land and to my DH's place of rest.
s to you. The mourning goes on in pieces here and there, forever.
Editted to add that it has now been ten years since his passing. I miss him. Our children are grown, in and out of college, working, married, and life has moved on.
But not one day passes that I do not miss my husband. We would today be married 36 yrs.
Thank you for sharing this with me, as it has blessed me in various ways, and I admire your strength and life experiences.
Blessings to you, new friend, and I am sure you still miss your beloved husband.
