I live in Richland, WA now, but lived in North Bend in 2010. Nice area.
I am TAWANA from Staten Island New York.
Hello, nice to meet you. I’m in my too just in Staten Island.
Staten Island is cool in my book, I get to NYC at least a couple times a year, love taking the ferry over.
Thank you for sending a note back, this is all so new to me. My wife Sharon passed in January suddenly and my heart is broken. I have never felt such pain and grief
this has really knocked me back and my world feels broken. I am doing the best just to get by day by day. We were married for 31 years and we did everything together. For me, the loneliness is really hard and very depressing. Thanks for listening - Jim
Jim, So sorry for the loss of your wife Sharon. Nothing prepares us for such a loss, or how to navigate through. The pain and lonliness are overwhelming. I lost my husband Ron suddenly to a heart attack. No previous warning no signs at all. Went from having a beautiful day together to not feeling at 9:30 pm to losing the love of my life 2 hours later. So fast, I didn’t know what hit me, I went into shock. That was 11/17/18, I can tell you things will get easier but I’m afraid it takes quite a lot of time. There’s so many ups and downs. Ron and I were together 44 years, married 41. Did everything together, ran our business together, nothing feels right any more, I miss him every minute of every day. As I can tell you miss Sharon. How can we not miss them, our lives revolved around our wonderful spouses.
I hope you have family and friends supporting you, especially now with this health crisis happening. We need as much support as we can get. The quarantine in place makes everything even worse. Staying as busy as possible is what helps me the most. But I had to close our business, so I’m not working and I have no schedule. With warm weather coming I’ll be able to be outside and do yard work. Keep my mind more active. I’m hoping you have people you can rely on for support through phone calls or whatever means you choose and things to occupy you mind when you’re up to it. Plus this site helps so much, reading and sharing our stories is so helpful.
There are better days ahead, keep working towards them.

Hello back. It looks like you have a convoy above. I remember after college working for a moving company as one of the worker bee-lifters. Some trips were long, lonely, and back-breaking. Nothing like sleeping on a floor to make the back feel better. Sure did beat filling sandbags in Nam.
