Happy Fourth Yahrzeit. 2Elul5767

I went to synagogue and said Kaddish for you. :

Thank you for the life we shared together.

It has been four years today. I have thought of you each day and missed you each day.

Life is a gift. We shared our lives. It was a true gift.

Five years. Not one day has passed without a thought of you and knowing that you have gone to your reward.

I remember when your DH died. (I had another username for 2 months) but it was right when I joined this board.. and here we are in the widow sisterhood together. (my DH's 3 year anniversary was the 25th and I remember how comforting you were to me when he died) I hope time has brought you bittersweet smiles and peace when you think of him.


Blissful Mama to DD-(5), DS-(6) and someone new due in November!

I am so sorry Applejuice. It doesn't seem like that long ago.

Thank you apple juice for sharing your beautiful love story.
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 forgot to add:

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.

Old post, but certainly not old sentiments. I had to comment after reading your story, and many of the loving responses..since we've "got to know one another" just a moment here on MDC, I value your wisdom, and part of that wisdom was gained with 26 years of committed marriage to your husband..and seeing him through illness and death.

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.

I have also buried a best friend, a sister and BIL. Life is not easy and growing old alone is the pits.
