Introduction October 22, 2005 11:20 AM

 My name is Judianne and I am from New York State in the USA. I lost my ex-husband last year - actually it was just about one year to the date that the divorce finally became final. I lost my adopted mom the year before that at Thanksgiving. My adopted father died many years before that - but I always remember him with love and kindness. My birthmother's husband was like a second father to me and I lost him about 10 years ago - one of the saddest days in my life - even tho' I was not his daughter he was always there for me in so many ways.

My ex-husband and I had split after 35 years of marriage - the last ten years were filled with alcohol and mental and physical abuse. We made our peace about a month before he died of lung and brain cancer. I last saw him the night before he died. In my heart I know that he knew I was there beside him with our children. My one consolation has been that we had made peace with each other and with ourselves. Alcohol is a cruel animal ... it does things to a person and causes them to do things that they normally would not do. We had many wonderful years together filled with wonderful loving and terrific memories. He will always hold a place in my heart.

To all of you I say that I know that no words can ever express the sorrow and pain that you feel - then and now. I want you to know that I will be here when I can and I plan on reading all of the different topics.

We each have to find a way to deal with the pain of our loss and we do each find our way - in our own time and in our own way.

Peace and love to you all -

Being apart from you isn't easy...
I find myself missing you so often,
In so many ways...

But even though we can't be together right now,
Gentle thoughts of you fill my days,
And dreams of you fill my nights...

No matter what I'm doing,
I know it would be so much nicer
If I could be sharing it with you.

I keep imagining things you'd say
If you were with me now...
Or the way you would laugh
If something funny happened,

And the next thing I know,
I'm daydreaming about all the things
We'll do when we're together again.

Although the miles
Come between us now,
I still feel so close to you...

And I just keep hoping
The days will fly by,
Because I want you beside me

To talk to,
To hold,
To love.

For my dads:

Because You Loved Me!

For all those times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right
For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
I'll be forever thankful baby
You're the one who held me up
Never let me fall
You're the one who saw me through
through it all

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith because you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me

You gave me wings and made me fly
You touched my hand I could touch the sky
I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
You said no star was out of reach
You stood by me and I stood tall
I had your love I had it all
I'm grateful for each day you gave me
Maybe I don't know that much
But I know this much is true
I was blessed because I was loved by you

You were always there for me
The tender wind that carried me
A light in the dark shining your love into my life
You've been my inspiration
Through the lies you were the truth
My world is a better place because of you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith because you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me

Ginger, Thank you for your kind welcome. Losing someone you love is so very hard. This is a fantastic group who appear to support each other and be there for each other. I could not have found myself in a better place.

Peace, love and happiness to all
