gone

‘Everything was changing. But it was grief that brought us together.’: Widows fall in love after losing spouses to tragedies, now a beautiful ‘blended family of 8’

“After my wife’s death, I got so many cards, letters, texts. But this one stopped me cold. The name brought a story so heavy, so dark, it was hard to believe she actually lived it. Knowing her story, you’d expect this sad, fearful person. It didn’t take me long to realize she was anything but. She was a beautiful girl with beautiful scars. And, suddenly, I wasn’t alone. The connection was effortless, natural, and deep. She gave me hope.”

“What I want to tell you most about having a husband who is gone a lot is this: It is harder on him than it is on me. He goes days, weeks, and months without a hug from someone who loves him.”
