    Hi
    Sorry to hear your news and please remember that the thoughts of ourselves and other members of the forum will be with you. It is a big blow after all those years of marriage and as they say time is a big healer, it isnt always the case, i lost my husband 12 years ago but there is always something that happens a song or a place that still tugs at your heart and brings back memories, but as long as you hold on to those your wife will always be with you. My partner lost his wife at the age of 39. you are in our thoughts at this time.

    Sheila & Mick ( runrig)

    I'm so sorry to hear your news. Don't stay away too long - I've not been here long either but I have come to the conclusion that this is a good, supportive place.

    Best wishes..

    Not much you can say only sorry and hope that you come through even stronger through what I can only imagine must be a trying time.

    Sad loss

    So sorry to hear of your loss - something many of us dread. The good thing about this Club everyone cares and, in their own way, share your grief. Later, when the time is right, you will probably feel that MotorhomeFun will be the place to be, amongst the friends you both made. Although only one of you will be there in body you will both be there in spirit. Only time will ease the pain. Best wishes, Jean & Graham

    You'd be a strange person if you weren't muddled. We men aren't equipped for this, we expect our wives to outlive us and carry on.

    So you've got to do the same. Carry on. It will be very difficult for a good while but you'd expect her to carry on and make the best of her life, so it's up to you to do the same.

    Last year it was 51 years of marriage gone, this year 52. You didn't forget the 51 years last year, you've always got the 52 years, which in today's age is very impressive, to look back on and keep you going.

    Don't leave and talk to us when you need us.

    We can only echo what everyone has already said.
    We celebrate out 40th anniversary on the 16 of this month, so we know what a strong bond you will have forged together over the years, through the ups and downs.
    You will always have these good times to look back on even though it will be tough for a while.
    You have many friends on this site, so don't stay away for too long.
    Lucille & Dave

    I think your post heading says it all, hopefully you will meet up one day with your "beloved" I think the response you have had shows the warmth of the people on this site and perhaps it would be good for you at times to get the anger and sadness off of your chest ...there is warmth and understanding on this web-site and it will be a help, but most of all remember you are not alone,this site is open 24hrs ......whatever time it is there will always be someone somewhere to chat to.

    Take one day at a time
