Praying for you two ladies as well as all others who have been affected by this tragedy. My 33 y/o husband died unexpectedly in his sleep June 5, 2015. He left our 4 kids and 2 Golden Retrievers behind. GriefShare changed my life for the better, beyond what words could ever express. Please seriously consider going to griefshare.org to find a meeting near you. For a while, you will be in what I call "a grief fog." Before that goes away and reality starts to hit (and it can hit quite hard and fast at times) I strongly urge you to seriously consider attending GriefShare. I highly recommend it to anyone who has lost a loved one but especially an unexpected loss as ours are. I pray Jesus will comfort you and give the peace that only He can provide throughout your journey of grief.
