We buried my wife this weekend. My sons came in from out of state and we held a virtual service for her. The virtual service was preferred due to COVID and because we have so many friends and relatives living in diverse places. It was very strange ...

I joined this group some time ago when my wife was very ill and her doctors didn't expect her to recover, but she did. In March of 2020, she was admitted to the hospital with very high arterial carbon dioxide levels and she was hallucinating almost ...

Ten years ago today my life changed in a way I could have never imagined. Today I remember my beloved, Karl Albert Wright, he was my everything through those thirty-eight years and one month. Through his feminist love, I pushed the envelope, I ...

How strange. Myria, whom I haven't been with in 36 years, dies unexpectedly at 78, and I'm devasted. We were together for 17 years, since I was 20, until I was 36. We had no children, by choice. Since we parted, I've had one marriage (24yrs.) and ...

It's been almost two years since my wife died. I still miss her, but I'm pretty much over the grief. The problem i'm having now is that there are VERY few single Agnostics/Atheist females in Boise, and I'm really tired of doing things by myself. I've...

I met my future wife fifty years ago this month. Today I will be picking up her grave marker. Sometime soon I'll invite a few friends over and we'll place her ashes in the ground in one of her favourite spots on our property.

My wife died the morning of Mach 19th, 2016. She was a breath of fresh air from being in an abusive relationship for 20 years (on paper). When she died people thought I would commit suicide. Off myself. Being a gun dealer I have many, and several, ...

It has been almost 4 years since cancer took my wife of 43 1/2 years. I think about her every day. And although the pain has subsided a bit it is still there. And the lingering question - why. But since I still live I must go on. The adjustment, as ...
