A sad anniversary…

Yesterday was the ninth anniversary of my late husband’s death.

I suppose it is something that I should put behind me, but all day yesterday I had flashes of memories of my marriage to him and a kind of melancholy pervaded my day.

He has now been dead for as long as we were married.

It was a long day.


  1. I'm sorry to hear this. Our memories aren't meant to totally disappear, and obviously they don't. A day's remembrance to honor someone you spent a decade with sounds normal and healthy to me.
    Sending hugs!

  2. Hi, I understand totally. The death of my late husband is coming on 12 years. We were together from the time I was 17 until his death when I was 39. He left me with 4 sons, 3 of them under the age of 18 at the time. Although my boys are all now grown and I actually remarried 5 years ago, I would "never" want to put it behind me. Thinking of him is a warm and wonderful feeling. On his death ann. and his B'day etc, I enjoy the extra time I find myself thinking of him. Life is busy and those days are special for me as a way of "reliving" for lack of a better word. Death and the way we all handle it is a different journey for us all, I hope you find peace in your ways of dealing with what has to be one of the most tramatic events a person can go thru.
    PEACE!!! and Hugz

  3. I was sorry to read this. Anniversaries such as these do make for long sad days and we never forget them. My mom was married to my dad for 13 years and he died 43 years ago - it's a terrible ratio. We never forget july 13. I write about him every once in awhile. I write about my mom too. . . but she reads what I write so I have to be more careful.

  4. I am sorry to hear this. I know one way or another we will experience loss. Your post makes my eyes blurry.I guess a little bit of pain there reminds us how much we truly love the person.

  5. Mom, I miss the short time I had with Chuck as a Friend, I do not know of many people who I have been friends with for such a short time that I still miss & wish I had had more time with as a friend.....I Love You, Your Son, Joe

  6. I'm very sorry. I hope you are feeling better today.

  7. Condolences.
    I love that you still keep him in your memories.
