    My husband died of pancreatic cancer two months ago. I know about waiting. I’m learning about remembering and moving forward. I like what I read so far, and right now I feel so different from of everyone, that is something. Thanks.

      Dear Phyllis, I am so sorry for your loss. At only two months, I was still in such shock that my husband was sick, let alone that he had died. I hope some of my words and journey can bring you comfort. Know that I hold you in my heart and I am so sorry.
      Your sister in pain and hope,
      Chris

    I recently began blogging after my 11 ye old daughter died just 1 week after we relocated from Texas to Massachusetts. This morning at 4am I posted my latest blog entry called Just Breathe. Just now, and quite by accident, I stumbled upon your post about October ending, and someone telling you to let someone care for you. You mention “the wind was knocked out of me” and I had to gasp when I read that line. I get that. And if you are curious, see my post from this morning. I totally get that EXACT reference. I enjoyed reading your entry and will start following you. I’m so sad for you about your husband, the boys dad. No words will change it. But I know how gut wrenching losing someone you live deeply can be. I’m broken from losing my child. And even now, 4 months after her death, my husband and our two boys are walking wounded. So like you, I write and I try to love others in hopes that my love inside for her won’t make me implode. That is part if my journey.
