I'm a new widow on SF and not a minute too late

Not open for further replies.
HI there. I'm new.... and not a minute too soon. SF stepped in right at the lowest point in my life. Thanks! I'm too old to be chasing love, and too tired running after dreams. My life was devestated and trashed in June on Father;s day when my husband died suddenly of a heart attack. My kids were devestated, and my life in shambles. But I realised one thing.... I was prepared to die for him at one point, now I;ll live for hi:sigh:m and keep his memory alive by keeping my family together, Nobody said it would be easy, but it would be worth it.
