I wish I had words. Words that filled the empty spaces of my heart. I don't know the normal patterns of grieving... its not common place for me. Although the thought of never having those huge arms give me a hug again saddens me... my heart is surely broken for a woman that has lost her partner of 61 years. I can't even begin to imagine the loneliness one feels when you finally find yourself alone after being half of a whole for so long. Who do you share your good news your bad news and your heartbreak. Who do you kiss goodnight? How long does it take for your wounds to heal? How long do you have to be alone?

I am truly sorry for you and your extended family. I don't think there are any answers, just a whole lot of questions. I guess it's just a process and part of the whole "life" thing, but boy does it hurt at the time. Thinking of you!

It is a hard thing. Our thoughts and prayers are with your Grandma and you kids for losing someone so important in your lives - I don't think you ever get over losing the love of your life - i know your Grandma C still misses Grandpa after almost 24 years. She flops back and forth between wanting to be with him and wanting to be here to watch all her great-grandchildren grow up. Write down all the good memories of your Grandpa Bill before they fade away.

I am so sorry for your loss. Its a hard thing to go through and I think everyone is different. I lost my grandma a few years back and sometimes things are fine and then other times I miss her dearly. I couldn't imagine losing my husband. Our prayers are with you and your family.
