Please surround yourself with positive people, take your time processing your feelings, and give yourself a break when you can’t control your thoughts and feelings. Losing someone so close is complicated and takes time.
Prayers to you and your family. I hope you find peace.
Praying for you and your family for peace and understanding. Have someone there with you after the funeral, that is normally the hardest part for most.
She sounds like a woman that you were very blessed to share a life with. It’s a hole only God and time can heal. Allow yourself the grieving process, lean on the great memories and Hope you will once again meet. She’s saving you a seat at the table.
I am so sorry for your loss. It sucks and there is no other way to put it. These next few days and weeks will be a blur. If you have children. lean on each other. You will feel lost, hollow, and alone. This is all normal and a part of grieving. Friends and family will give you well meaning advice on what you should do and when you should do it. Only you can set the timeline. Don't be in a hurry to make decisions.
Lost my my wife just short of our 40th anniversary last September. We married when I was 18. She was my first and only love. It would have been her 61st birthday a few days ago.
My children have been wonderful. I would not have gotten through the first few days without the help and support of my oldest daughter. I pray you have support from someone
In days to come you will be overwhelmed by loss. It is ok to ask for help. I found some comfort in reading a sub-reddit called r/widowers. It is people going thru loss like you. Mostly good advice there.
May the lord grant you peace until the day he calls us all home for a grand reunion.
