I never thought I’d be a widow…

  1. My heart goes out to you. The traumatic experience of finding your husband cold and without life is devastating. I remember the night I found my husband gone at 3 in the morning. Those dark memories will remain, but will soften over time. Your husband’s service to our country makes him an honorable and noble man. Give yourself and children time to heal as you process this tragic loss. Sending prayers to you and your family.

  2. God Bless you and your children. I am a widow as well. My husband did not serve in the army. However he became addicted to pain pills thanks to the dr.s and overdosed as well. I never thought I would be a widow at 40 .I will pray for you and your children. Yes is was and is a hero. Thank God you have this organization to help you. I have no one. My daughter lives in California now, where she is working. Let everyone around you help in anyway they can. God Bless you.

  3. As tears stream down my face reading your story my heart aches for the similarity our stories share and the loss you’ve experienced. I know too well the feeling of finding your husband lifeless from overdose. It kills me that soldiers are fighting these invisible battles on home soil that are just as dealdy as the ones they experienced overseas. I know there isn’t much to say that can take away the pain you must feel, but being close in age, a military widow/mama I want you to know you’re not alone. My husband died from the insane amount of meds the military hospitals were feeding him after an explosion he survived in Iraq. The system is flawed and needs to be stopped, I don’t know how, but we need to fix it so our tragic stories don’t keep repeating themselves. My love and support go out to you. Woman like you give me strength. Keep your head up and remember there are others like you who care.
