I feel your pain. I really do, because my ex husband just passed away on Jan. 3 of this year. Died at age 50 in his sleep of a silent heart attack. Today would have been his 51st b/d. Went to his grave and put flowers on it, posted his picture with the kids and a saying to be published in our Sunday paper in the Milestones edition, where they put weddings, thank yous, anniversaries and In Rememberence. That's about all I can do for Gary now. I know he's my ex but he was still my BEST friend, we spent a LOT of time together, had 2 kids and it still hurts sooooo much!!I divorced him because of his alcoholism. But when that guy wasn't drinking he was the sweetest, nicest and generous hearted person and very fun to be with. He was around me a lot last year up till Dec. He didn't drink around me and I don't think he started drinking again till Dec. (college buddies started him up I think) So, anyway, it's very hard, my daughter is 9 and my son is 15. I think some days it's a little easier, but days like today make me very sad.
His b/d and all. I know they say, move on, get past it, etc. but it isn't always that easy. But, I hope he is at peace, I have to believe that he is, and "In the Arms of the Angels" Gary loved that song, so much, we had it played at his funeral. Thanks for listening!
