Re: Anthony died on 30th July in a London Hospice
It is incredible how closely our lives seem to imitate each others. I am feeling & thinking & doing almost exactly what you are describing about yourself. Jim & I seem to have gone through almost the same experience in the end that you & Anthony did. Many people never have what you & I shared with our husbands. I know I should be glad for all the years & fond memories we shared, but I guess we never thought it would end. I'm selfish. I wanted more. I am thinking about you also & will keep in touch. Hopefully we can help each other to be strong through this most traumatic time in both our lives. Take care of yourself, as that is all we can do now. We did our best for Anthony & Jim & I am sure that they would now want us to do our best to take care of ourselves. (Easy to say & hard to do!) It is just so comforting to me to know that everything I am feeling is normal under these circumstances as it is also what you are feeling. Will the pain ever lessen? Again, Try to be strong as I will also. Keep in touch.
