krissyaldridge Posted November 2, 2018 Report Share Posted November 2, 2018 I lost my wife and my teenage son on October 16th in a horrific car accident involving a tractor trailer. The pain I am feeling is immense and, at times, unbearable. I have learned through this that pain and grief creates two kinds of people. 1. People who know the circle of life and realize that dying is a part of living and 2. People who just feel that they cannot go own and pretty much lay down and die. I have gravitated towards 1. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I know its there. I don't know how far away I am from reaching it, or even if I ever will reach it. But seeing it is what keeps me going. My son was our only child. He was 14. He had his whole life ahead of him. My wife had just graduated with her Masters in Psychology and was working as a counselor. We had an amazing life. I have no regrets. We didn't say things to each other that we didnt mean. There is nothing that I wish I had said - because we all said I love you every single day. I know they loved me and I am positive they knew I loved them. The thing that brings me the most comfort is the fact that they did not suffer. It was painless and sudden. Also, I am comforted by the fact that they were together. They died together and not alone. It wouldn't have worked out any other way. My wife was the lay down and die kind of person if something were to happen to me. She wouldn't have been able to carry on. Even though it has been only a little over 2 weeks since the accidcent - through their spirits I can feel them pushing me to carry on. It's so hard because I miss them so much. 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
