Totally off topic and strictly personal

I struggled hard debating with myself over whether to post this. In the end I decided I must honor my wife and it would be simply wrong continue posting on this board, acting like nothing happened.

This week, I lost my wife due to medical complications and it ended 45 years of inseparable partnership that will be tough to adjust to. When I was in the 40s and watched others lose their spouse, I thought that if it happened to me in the sixties that will be easier to deal with. Dead wrong. It appears that longer you are together, tougher the separation. It is just going to be hard getting over this and what she meant to me.

I know I am not the first person this has happened to, but man it is tough to take.

Well, thanks for reading this and now that I have said this I can go on posting on this board and not feel guilty of not grieving.

Prayers for you and your family PJ.

PJ, I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

My prayers for you and your family, PJ.

I cannot fathom what you are going through.

So sorry to read this. I’ve been reading your posts for so long that it seems like I know you. Nothing I can say to take away the grief, but know you are in my thoughts.

Be well old friend.

Sorry to hear PJ. Prayers on the way.

Nothing can ever prepare you for that kind of loss. Prayers for you and your family.

PJ, so sorry to hear this & hang in there. I’m so glad you shared this with us. Sports stuff pales in comparison to real life grief like this. You are in my prayers!

I am so sorry. You and your family are in my prayers.

I wish I could say something to make you feel better. I know I can’t. All I can do is pray for you.

PJ, I am so sorry for your tremendous loss. As a person who shared a loss with this board, I hope the support and love that so many strangers extend, will give you similar comfort to what I felt. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Terrible news, PJ. Our thoughts are with you.

PJHawg, you are in my prayers. Words are cheap in a time like this, but God can comfort in a way we as humans do not know how. Your personal loss is much greater than any loss a sports team will ever have. May God comfort you with His Word. God bless.

Praying for your strength, your peace and your comfort.

I am sorry for your unimaginable loss. May God keep and comfort you and your family.
