I just found this site while trying to locate a local grief support group in the Milwaukee area (which I haven't been able to do yet). I am just so empty. I am 46, single. My mom was my best friend. We met for coffee all the time, laughed about so many things, and then suddenly she is gone at age 75. On Feb. 29 she passed out in the bathroom and when the paramedics arrived, they DROPPED her down a flight of stairs headfirst and she sustained multiple neck, spine, rib, skull fractures and head injuries and never regained consciousness. She died March 17 after being on a ventilator for over 2 weeks. I feel so cheated of joy with her and all due to a split second of slippery footing during a snowfall. She was so fun, so active, involved in so many things and was always there for me and my sister. I cried so much that now I am numb. It just really hurts. Although I am surviving, my life is just so quiet now. I still can't really believe it.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
