Deep in Grief

My beautiful wife Sherri passed away a year ago, April 27, 2012 and I cannot seem to come back to what I was -- we have two beautiful girls, 21, and 13, and though I am there for them, I am not the man I was -- I mis my wife on a level I did not believe possible -- she was everything to me, my best friend, soul mate, lover, my entire world -- I was her care giver the last eleven months, and held her in my arms as she died, both beautiful and terrible -- I wrap a pillow in her clothes so I can smell her, I struggle when hearing music she liked, and I wonder if I will ever feel real joy again -- never will I date have another relationship because I feel that would be cheating on that beautiful girl, and who could ever be what she was to me? -- in addition to missing her, I miss who I was when she was with me, how she made me feel -- I felt complete with her because of who she was and how she loved me -- she attached herself to me soul a long time ago, and I feel she is still here....

She IS there, right there, in your heart.  And she would not want to see you suffer, because she wants you to be happy.  Blessings - Blu

How raw  is your pain,Im sorry your suffering its sad,Your journey talkS of loss
and  grief of a soul mate seperated from you.I have lost many in my life
