Well Iv been 18 months Almost on my own . When we met 35 years ago the first person Rob took me to meet was his best friend and today it his best friends 60th and he’s invited friends for a meal to the local hotel in our village . I was overwhelmed when I got asked to go but I didn’t really want to go alone . I sat and gave it some thought and realised I needed to go and attend on Robs behalf and to represent him , Dave was the brother Rob never had ( Rob and his biological brother didn’t get on) . So I’m getting my glad rags on and going to this meal there will be people there I know but i should really have my soul mate with me . Although I know Dave really well in doing this for you Rob love and miss you so SO much xx
Brilliant that you’re doing this Kazzer- for Rob and for you too! Socialising is sometimes so hard- you want that person by your side who gave you confidence and made you feel whole. Rob will be proud of you. I bet you’ll have a lovely time with friends who truly care. Please tell us how it goes.
Love, Sophie x
Sophie26 the meal was lovely it was nice to meet up with friends who I met through Rob and no point did I feel a singleton . We had a few laughs and Rob was mentioned throughout the evening which was nice as it just confirmed he’s missed not just by me . Thank you asking take care Karen x💕
Well done on going to your night out. I haven’t yet come across this situation of being asked to somewhere like this on my own. Not sure how I would cope. It’s good you got to see your husband’s friends and talk about him. I haven’t heard from people that were mainly mark’s friends except for his best friend who has kept in touch.
Well done @Kazzer, I am so glad you found the courage to go. Brave and a kind thing to do too. His best friend would be so glad you could be there
And your Rob, wherever he is, whatever you believe, would be so proud of you xx
I great thank you it was a hard decision to make but after giving it some thought I felt I just had to do it for Rob and I’m so glad I did xx take care Karen x
