Oh Adele I’m so sorry for you loss too, it’s awful that still after such a long time you find it so difficult. Me and my husband were also soul mates and together for 32 years before he was taken by cancer at the young age of 52. I feel like I’ve lost my own life as we too were planning our future now the children had all grown, it’s so cruel I hate it. X

Sorry I read that wrong I thought you lost your soulmate 17 years ago so didn’t mean to put so long ago, sorry x

It’s fine no October the 24th gone so it is six months and three weeks and two days today since Edward fell asleep in my arms im utterly truamatised thanks again for your kind message I hope the night is kinder to you in my thoughts Adele x

Simon passed at home 11:20am, 29th October so about the same time as you. Our children are all amazing but it’s different for them, I feel like I’ve lost my whole future x

I’m sorry to hear that it’s utterly devastating we never had any children yet our future has been stolen taken away so cruelly and tragically every day is getting worse can’t even open the blinds today just want my Edward back in my arms im utterly heartbreakon and truamatised every second of the day is getting worse we built a home together doesn’t feel like home now just a silent empty house material things are nothing I’d give anything to go back and meet him again hold his hand once more hug him tightly even one more kiss on the forehead in the chapel of rest anything I’d do feel so desperate and lost thinking about this time last year we were planning our holidays not a care in the world I hope you find a group local to you in my thoughts Adele x

Oh Adele, I know it’s awful and you feel like you don’t want to go on because so do I but just try and open the blinds, look at the sun outside, think of the good times, yes it will make you cry as it does me but that’s not a bad thing. X

Thankyou for your kind words and encouragement means alot it was sunny in Newcastle today was the last few days its clouded over now cant even bring myself to sit out there picturing us both sat there last summer in the garden where we always sit joked talked listened to the birds have dinner watered the plants and flowers all gone absolutely heartbreaking thankyou again and I hope the night is kinder to you take care of yourself as much as possible in my thoughts Adele x

Adele, I seriously know how you feel, heartbroken, lost, devastated, angry and many more. I do too, just to hear his voice, just to hold his hand, just to lie next to him in bed again. I want all those things and everything else I had, I cannot imagine the rest of my life without any of those things and I know you feel the same. Such a shame we don’t live closer. Be strong in the thought that I know how you feel, I really do x

Thankyou for your kind words in your time of your horrendous loss also yes all of that just to hear his footsteps on the stairs the toilet flush sneeze a little snore during the night having too much quilt accidentally knocking knees during the night listen to him lock up at night put the chain on alarm on that feeling of security he was my soulmate my reason for getting up in the morning one cup seems so unfair as there were always two now just an empty chair in the dining room thankyou again for your kindness take care of yourself as much as possible speak soon in my thoughts Adele x
