I lost my David in April. It feels like only a couple of weeks ago. We were both in our fifties when we meet. A chance meeting, neither looking for a relationship. We knew each other right away. Both of us having been married before and having other failed relationships, we were cautious, skeptical people. But within 3 days, we were saying I LOVE YOU. We both felt we found our soulmate - FINALLY !! It just all clicked. Best friends, companions, lovers, the whole package. Within 2 weeks David developed a cough. I pressed for him to see a doctor. On our 30th day together, he was diagnosed with 4th stage lung cancer. He was given 4 months....he managed to give me 18 months ! Although we spent most of our time together at medical offices or in the hospital, we managed to go to Alaska and we laughed and we loved. We lived a lifetime in 18 short months. He WAS my husband though we never had a ceremony. But not one person sent me a condolence card. Because we only were together 18 months and never married, they do not understand the depth of my grief. I lost my SOULMATE - the man I searched for all my life. I am devastated. I am having a hard time going on with my life now that I have found him and lost him. Can anyone relate to my story ? I need someone to understand. Thank you.
