    My deepest condolences.

    I lost my mom suddenly in September and still find it hard.
    In my case, I found that by celebrating her memory and chatting about the good times with my brothers and sister we are all helping each other get through the grieving process.
    Hold your kids tighter, celebrate her memory always and when feeling sorrow remember the joy she brought into your life........it won't make it go away but it might help.

    I am a writer in times of trouble. I like to share these. The Nevermind post was dealing with a grandmother who was on her death bed. Now that my wife has passed, my grandmother is fighting to live. At least something positive may come from this tragedy. This pretty much sums up my thoughts right now:

    10 years. That was the plan. We were 4 years in. There was no backup. Why would we think we wouldn't make it?

    I loved my wife, but she loved me more. I love my children, but she loved them more. I can't help but feel the last 4 months were her way of training me how to handle two kids on my own. Reality will eventually set in. For now, I live my life for my children. My son loved my wife so much. Riley will never get the chance to know her.

    I ask that anyone who wants to help just pray for my son. He needs it more than anyone. She will be missed by all, but he may never truly understand.

    Sorry for your loss and I agree with you that I would miss not being able to hug my wife. I think if if lost her, the emptiness would consume me most at bedtime. Not being able to hold her hand or kiss her goodnight. She lost her brother in August and left a 3yr old and 1yr old behind. The kids do need the prayers and I understand when you say pray for my kids. Prayers to your kids.
