    Thanks for pulling that up, Chex. A great charity for a great cause. Encouraging all to make a generous donation, if possible.

    Superfly, thanks for sharing your stories -- you made me both laugh and cry. I love you to bits and it pains me that you're hurting. Just know that we are here for you. Big hugs.

    Thank you all. I love you. And thank you for the donations. It would have meant the world to him.

    I have to add this. I can’t not add this.

    My husband was in the hospital from May 20 until he passed on October 18.

    I found two white beard hairs today. One on a brand new table cloth that I just bought very recently, and another on our butcher block countertop, which was just installed on October 1.

    He has not been in the house since May. The tablecloth and the butcher block were very recent purchases.

    I'm not sure how to address something. I'm not sure what to do.

    Today is my birthday. I do not feel like celebrating. Even though, after 23 years, he still forgot my birthday , I just don't feel like celebrating.

    Even though my house is decorated to the point of being assaulted by the color orange for Halloween, I probably won't be passing out candy this year. Haven't even watched a scary movie yet. Just not in the mood.

    I am thinking forward to Thanksgiving and Christmas. I don't know what to do. I always cook large for both holidays, and now I just don't want to cook at all. My grandson mentioned how I was still going to have to cook pumpkin pie, because he (the grandson) loved it. I dissolved when he said that. I cried so hard. He didn't realize how bad it would hurt me, but pumpkin pie was Hubs' favorite thing of all time. But if I don't cook, they won't have anything for Thanksgiving dinner, because they are in a tight spot and can't afford it.

    I feel like I should continue our traditions on for the girls, because they would appreciate it, but I don't know if they even want it. They go back and forth about it. Me? I think I'd just stay in bed all day if it were up to me. I would not turn the oven on at all. Just doesn't seem right.

    Your story is so heartbreaking, particularly for those of us that have been happily married for many decades. I don't have any grandchildren to lighten my heart if I were in your situation, you're very blessed to have grandchildren. The first year after the death of a loved one must be excruciatingly difficult. Look at your birthday as year #1 of a new life for you. Just as a newborn goes through that first difficult year, there are mountains to climb and obstacles to overcome. You'll do it because you simply have no other choice. The pain will subside but not for a while. For now, wrap your arms around your family and cook that big Thanksgiving dinner and pumpkin pie. Decorate that pie with a candle in your husband's memory, he'd probably get a laugh out of a pumpkin pie with a candle stuck in it.

    Blessings to you and your family. Keep each other close.
