my wife passed away from cancer 4 months ago today. We were married 43 years. I hope to live my life in 2015 in a way that would honor her and keep our memories.

I also retired last month after working for 43 years. I hope to live my life in 2015 with many new and exciting adventures. Just wish I had my life long mate to go with me.

I am so sorry about your wife, but your resolve to carry on your life with new things is the right one.On the first trip I took after my husband's death,I spent a lot of time in wistful tears, wishing he was there to share it with me. But I eventually realized that he would want me to enjoy the trip, not spend it in sadness. I have since been on other trips with my children and grand-children and learned to just enjoy the moment.
