Today was the day. I just got back from the morgue. I had to go down personally to submit some changes I wanted on the headstone. This morning was one continual panic attack. Amazingly, we were able to do this in the lobby with a very nice lady who didn't seem to belong in that environment.
I realize that there is no such thing as total closure, but I feel like I have been carrying this weight on my shoulders for some time - dragging my feet and not wanting it to be FINAL. Set in stone...
Not sure what the new year brings, but this was a big step, and I think, if I do say so, he would be pleased with the epitaph. I did my best to sum up his life. My next question is this: Will I be able to move away after I have done this?? Remember, I own another small piece of property in Oklahoma - in a "gated" community.
I lost my husband 14 days ago. I have no words just tears and questions. He was 46 and I'm 31. How do you say I love you goodnight to the next morning he was gone. I took him off life support on friday December 1st. I'm so mad sad and everything in between. I just don't understand
Nearly at 6 weeks. The grief/mourning is not getting better. Death is still more attractive than life. If one lives long enough it seems nearly every attachment one makes in this life is ripped from your arms, if not by human nature or mother nature, then by father time. Sorry to group members for yet more gloom, especially at this time of year.
