Dear Vic,
I'm sorry about your loss. My dear brother also lost his wife this January in a bad accident and he has to raise 2 kids alone.

He wrote an absolutely beautiful song that I'm sure you could relate with, you are more than welcome to listen to it:

Listen to song
Thank you, may God bless.

Hi,

I lost my wife last April 3,2012 and it was from Aneurysm she was only 34y/o , no signs of health problems before which makes things so hard, she left me with 2 girls 7 and 2 y/o. I'm on the edge of giving up, it is so hard to loose someone you have been with everyday, someone whom you talked to every single detail in your life. Thins are going worst by the day. I don't know what to do anymore.

Hi Davey, I'm very sorry for your loss.

Davey, this isn't something you are going to get through by yourself. Do you have supportive family or friends close by who can help? Lean on them, lean on them hard! You will need every break you can get.

Please try and find a grief peer support group in your area. There are people there who can relate to you in a way that no one else can. They can suggest ways for you to cope as well as ways to support your young girls.

If you need help finding such a group, please let me know. I'll do what I can to help you.

May you find peace during this terrible time,

Vic
