Our anniversary is in January and we had a wonderful party planned. Then, on October 2nd, 2012, after telling me that he loved me the love of my life left to pick up our grandson. He never reached the school. About 4 blocks from our house he had a pulmonary embolism. When I recived a phone call from the school that Keegan had not been picked up I left immediately. As I headed to the school I saw my SUV and decided to not stop but continue to the school. As I passed the truck I saw Ed standing at the back of it, well, I thought I saw him at the back of the truck. I continued to the school and thought that he must have had a mechanical problem and I would stop on my way home, which I did. It was then that I learned from a police officer that Ed, the love of my life, had been taken to the hospital and was resucitated in the ambulannce. It was then that I saw, not his body, but his spirit at the rear of my vehicle. He never regained consciousness and we turned off the ventilator on October 5th. We had his memorial service on October 13th. I love you Edward!

    My heart goes out to you. I hope you can find your way forward and take comfort knowing Edward will always be with you in your heart and in spirit.

    I remember when my Dad died very suddenly, 33 years ago now, I saw him twice. Just for a few seconds each time - long enough to give me a reassuring smile.

    OH, my dear, my heart goes out to you. Words don't help, but know that we are here for you when you want to share thoughts and just need to vent. I will keep you in my prayers. You might want to check out the Lost a Loved One team on here. It has provided a place for me to share and to vent when I needed to - losses of those dear to us continue to impact us and not everyone wants to talk or hear about it.
