I did not find Daily Strength until about a month ago. I wish I had found it a long time ago. I am so glad that someone started this Widow group. I lost my husband of 36 years suddenly in Sept 2006. He was not sick and he died at home while we were talking and watching television. I have read a few books and done some research online and I believe when you lose someone suddenly you grieve differently. We have so many unanswered questions, and we did not even get to say goodbye! The weekends are so lonely - as I sit here and write this the tears are flowing - this is such a long journey - and I don't know if anyone else feels this way - but people do not understand that this changes your life forever - it is not something we "just get over" - people say hurtful things without even knowing they are doing it.
