As I read through the topics here I grasp parts of other peoples story , I realise I am not the only one, I would love to keep my husbands memory alive sharing “our “‘story and would like to hear others ,
I met Nick in 2000 while I was still married to an alcoholic wife beater ! Nick was a job coach for adults with learning disabilities and he would pick them up from near where I worked , for a year he was just the man at the bus stop I would say “hello “‘to , then one day I found my self confiding in him , and it went from there ! We were forced to live apart in the early days as he had his mother living with him as she had dementia he was such a caring man, he taught me how to enjoy gardening as my ex husband would never allow me to get “involved “‘with the garden , he was a “bugger” with clothes and watches he loved designer labels ! He was worse than a woman with clothes , and Trainers OMG he would always say just this pair and I am done , we waited so long for each other , having an engagement that lasted two decades , September 2022 we didn’t tell anyone but eloped to Gretna Green and got married at the blacksmiths , I had two big previous church weddings this was different as it “felt “different , we both cried and said “what the F**k we crying for we are both happy , on the 13th April 2024 Nick brought me in a cup of tea and said the words he always did “tea made with love “ he then threw his tea up and had a heart attack at my feet , I had two days of hope in ICU then on the 15/4/24 had to watch his life support being turned off , his heart was just too damaged , and now mine is shattered into a thousand pieces x

But no sorry I could never write again x
