Jeannie, please go to a VA office and carry your husbands214 showing he was exposed to agent orange. The VA will compensate you. Americans are dying everyday from agent orange. My husband died from agent orange when he was exposed in Ben Hoa vietnam. Please get your papers together and go to VA immediately.

I, too, just lost my husband, on Dec.31, 2010, I believe to cancer. Doctors were not sure what all was wrong. I am surrouded by family now, but what happens afterwards when you are alone. I am dreading it. I am 61. My husband was 65. I felt too young to die. Hard to come to terms with it. Know that I am praying for you and thanking God for helping us. D

Take hope all widows. GOD had special feelings/instructions concerning widows and orphans. Appeal to GOD confident knowing this.
We will pray for your situations also. Help those helping you to fulfill GODs instruction to their blessing.

1 Timothy 5:16
If any man or woman that believeth have widows, let them relieve them, and let not the church be charged, that it may relieve them that are widows indeed.
James 1:27
Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

I am 60 and just lost my husband a week ago, and it is very hard. It seems like I am alone in all of this. I guess I was just in denial about his imminent death. He was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer about 10 mos ago, and I tried so hard to find a treatment that would help him. I have given up my life to help him, and am left with next to nothing...He was an agent orange veteran, and I am left with many bills, and only a small pension. It has been very disturbing. I love him very much, and feel his love surrounding me, but it has been a real eye opener. Please continue to contact me..I will give you the support you may need.
---Jeannie_Lillegaard on 1/5/11

You are not alone, God is with you. It is at this kind of times that you get closer to God. Lean on Him. Remember that He is making sure that you would receive much more better by clearing things away from you. Look beyond that loss and the joys that await you.
God Bless.

I am looking for the same thing. I am only 20, but my husband passed 2 days before our little girl was to turn 2 months old. He was my everything. I thought I was doing okay, but now, 4 months later, I realize I'm losing my mind. I've prayed about it and I feel like I need to find more people that have been through the same thing to help me with my loss.

Patty: This is such a delicate subject. Please forgive me if I say some things that seem insensitive. This is what I have found out. My heartfelt condolences to you and your family. I do understand how you feel. I lost a young son two yrs ago. My heart is yet healing. My family was some help. When all is said and done, Jesus will be the only one who can pull you through this. Get in the Word and let it be a comfort to you. Pray a lot and ask God to help you. Stop looking to people. They mean well but are too selfish,insensitive or just plain don't know how to show love to others in need. I don't mean this disrespectfully, this is just the truth. Jesus is the only one who can help us.

I need to talk to someone. I just lost my husband May 13, 2010 we were only married for 18 months. He lost his fight with brain cancer and he was only 29. I feel so alone. All my family lives several thousand miles away and I don't know how to talk to his family about how I'm feeling. Sometimes I find myself crying for no apparent reason and I can't keep everything inside any more. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated!
---Misti on 8/6/10

My husband died a month ago age 49 of liver cancer. We were married 18 years. I just had my 49th birthday this month. I am missing him sooo much and I do feel lonely at times. He is the only man for me. We were everything to each other. I know how you feel cause I am going through too. What helps for me is that God is carrying me through this and I have my bible study classmates praying for me and the class helps me to express how I feel. I encourage you to get involved in a small bible study class like the one I am in. Much peace and blessings to you.

I feel for you that your husband has past on. It sounds like you really loved him alot and Im pretty sure he must have loved someone like you alot also. The good news is if he was a Christian, you did not loose him, he went home. The other good news is you had someone to love and be loved by for all those wonderful years. As Christian you will see him again and there will be no more death there,no more sorrow tears or pain every tear will be wiped away. Some people say that when we leave here we are a sleep. Some say we are immediately in the presence or God, I don't know. But I do believe that the next thing you are aware of as a christian is the presence of God. If you are and He be in Christ you are still together in the body of Christ.

Hi. My name is Lindsey. I am very sorry for your loss and feel very sad along with you. On the other hand, we can be assured that through every difficult trial God sends our way He will make us stronger. Maybe when you are ready you will be able to help others in similar situations by speaking to them about how God carried you through this time. I will pray for you that He might give you comfort and strength to realize His very different plan for your life. Maybe God will open different doors for you which will give you back the joy in your heart.

Patty/Patricia:-Death is an inevitability.a journey from Point "A" to point "B"Its unfortunate that the journey does not coincide, but one must stay behind, to pick up the pieces and maintain a semblance of order with the remanants of the Family in the mosaic of Gods Puzzle.You have been chosen for this task.This means you must now direct your energies and steer the ship to keep it on course.So you charter a new course to move on to the destination which is chosen by God for you.These are my findings after many,many years of sharing with my co-captain.May you find the same resourcefullness that I did after understanding the situation.Blessings.

Phyllis, I'm sorry for your lose. I loved my wife so much so know what you are going through.
I remember reading a booklet by Charles Stanley. He said there was nothing wrong with saying, "God, why did you allow this to happen? What was Your purpose for it?" After all God is omnipotent, therefore He could have prevented every hardship in our lives. The fact that He chose not to do so is important, and we can grow closer to Him by understanding His reasons. The most evident purpose for our trails is to test our faith. He test us in order for us to learn greater dependence on Him. Peter makes a claim in 1:6-7 that trials offer us opportunities to prove our faith. God's faithfulness during our tense times glorifies Him.

I have an aunt that was married for about 30 years who recently lost her husband, and I am told that she is acting strange. You have to allow for adjustment time. Prayer helps, pastoral counseling, and there should be some social organizations and support groups (you could check the phone book: the local government section for social program help, some outpatient groups connected to hospitals, and the yellow pages for support groups where others are dealing with the same life changes that you are) which can help you through the grieving process and restructuring your life and alone time to being single again.

I do not wish to make things worse, but you must change your mindsent and be confident that God has taken your loved ones to Heaven and that they are in a BETTER place than this world. If you are a Christian, they were sanctified by you, they did not desert you, so they are members of the family. One day your time will come to join them and until then you have to praise God as Job did. For the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away, Blessed be the name of the Lord.

My heart goes out to you who have lost a loved one. But finding comfort on these blogs is nothing compared to a real person - a close friend or pastor. You need an understanding heart and a professional will not do because his/her heart isn't into your grief.

As for me, when someone dies I introduce the grieving spouse to children or young adults to see each other on a regular basis for a month or two. I also introduce them to other adults their own age for continued company. Having other people around you at a time of grieving helps considerably. (search for "one another" and "each other" in an online bible for more information)

Remember though Pray always for comfort by the Holy Spirit.

Did you lose him through divorce?
Are you separated?
There's many ways to lose someone. Some husbands simply run away from their families.

I don't think bloggers can offer you the comfort you need. How about seeking professional help?

My heart is saddened by all of your posts. It's so hard to lose someone and it's also hard to see someone grieve and not be able to make it all better. You are not alone, but I know you miss him. It's ok to miss him, you are entitled to that. But it will get easier, I promise. Something I always find helpful, a bit crazy, but helpful, is to ask Jesus, when I pray to tell my loved one hello and that I miss them and that I can't wait to see them again. I do that and it helps me. Jesus - please cover these people, all who have lost someone. Comfort them until the time comes again when we will all be reunited. Thank you.

Dear Penny, Words are not going to console you , but remember there are many who have read what you have written and are secretly praying for you . The Lord will pour forth his grace upon you .. as Job was healed of his loss of his children , so will you be healed. How..I do not know but the Lord Jesus I believe in is also a man who wept when he came to the tomb of Lazarus.

Having lost many loved ones through the years I can definitely sympathize with both writers. Grieving is a process and you have to let it take its course. I'd pray that Jesus help me carry the cross burden of my grief. And, he would. One thing I learned after my first few losses - never put all your focus on one person. Make sure to have some good friends besides your mate. If all the focus is on your mate then the loneliness will be that much more intense should they die before you.

I spend time in praise and worship. Please be easy on yourself. Keeping busy just postpones the grief. You need to grieve. Don't lean on anyone who cannot stand up for you.May God comfort you, put his loving arms around you, protect you in the shadow of his wings. Love, Marcy

Hi Pat,

I can relate to losing a loved one. I did not lose a spouse, but I did lose a sister to an unsolved murder in 2003 and my eldest bro. to a routine colonoscopy 3mos later which was on my sister's birthday. The pain seems unbearable. However, with constant prayer and time the pain eases. I understand your pain, but trust God to see you through. He'll put no more on us than we can bare.

God Bless You!

You do have someone to talk to and Jesus and His guardian angels are on duty 24/7. First, thank Him for His sacrifice of His son. Then, thank Him for the years he gave you a husband whom you cherished. Ask Him for direction as to what to do today to fill that gap in your life and what does He want you to fulfill before you join that loved one. Pray in His name. He is the only one who knows you and you should know and trust Him. He loves you and does not want you unhappy or lonely

Begin doing those things and you will see there is much to do. I remember when this happen to me no one called. My children and I all became more close. My one daughter was great in taking over with bills. We can only thank God for the spouses He gave us to share our live's with. Just remember that you are not along. Many of us have gone through this. Blessings to you and family

Sister Patty, I lost my wife eight years ago. I know what you are going through. In my case I come to understand that God has a purpose for all of us and that He is not done with us and wants to use us in many ways. Every moment of your life you touch someone and make a difference.No matter where you go are do. Your husband has done his work and now it is up to you to continue until God calls you. Just think of all the things that you can do now which you couldn't do before.

Dear Patty,
I feel your pain. My husband died 8 years ago in an accident I was 44. It is a difficult time to go through but with God's help and caring others you will make it through. It is a process that never ends. Take the void in your heart and in it's place put the love and give it to others. You can also help those going through the same thing, maybe a little later. If there is a grief support group near you attend, it really helped me. I will keep you in my prayers. God Bless.

Patty, I truly understand how you feel. I lost my husband when he was 44 with leukemia, and I was 43 at the time. The LORD was my comfort, and it also helped me to volunteer at the nursing playing the piano for the residents. It made me feel better, knowing that I was helping others feel better, and it also helped me to get my mind off of my grief. Feel free to write me here on c-net anytime.

Hi Pat,
Sorry for your loss. I dont really know what to say to you, other than I feel bad that you feel alone. Maybe you can join some kind of club? My mom who is 87 joined this knitting club at her church and she loves it. Dont be afraid to be alone. Go out to eat at nice resturants or go to a show. God is with you always.
