My name is Ryan O’Connor and I just lost my wife and best friend Jennifer to Ovarian Cancer last week. I am 34 years old and Jen was 35. We were married 3.5 years and together for over six years. She was diagnosed in February of 2011 and battled just over a year before she passed. She was the most amazing woman I have ever met, she was as gorgeous as she was friendly. She made me such a better person and I am truly blessed that she was a part of my life. I sit here still in shock and full of sadness and not knowing where to turn and how to heal. We have no children and were a family of the two of us. Friends and family keep telling me it will get easier as each day goes by but I keep telling them they all have either a husband or a wife and with children and have someone to keep going. I come home alone and wish my wife would follow, it’s harder than people think. If you have any encouraging words or stories to brighten my day I am all eyes and ears.
Thanks for reading!
