Life After Loss My Speech for my Husband’s Memorial Party
Tomorrow will be the big party for my husband. I have asked a few family and friends to give short speeches during the party. Being his wife, I really should say something too, but I know myself very well. I have no way to carry out this speech without breaking down millions of times. So I am going to just give my speech here, on our blog.
Bob was a man nobody can replace, at least not in my heart. He was often mad the last few months of his life and asked me “Why can we only have 10 years together?” I didn’t know the answer. The only thing I know is Bob and I were perfect for each other and we had such a happy life together. Even during the darkest time in our life, we still managed to truly enjoy every minute of each other’s company, support and love.
For others, my man may be just an ordinary guy. But for me, he was the best husband and my best friend. He taught me so many things, like how to speak English, drive a car, drinking, vacationing and just simply enjoying the small things in our lives. Some of the small things he enjoyed very much in the summer was grabbing a big slurpy for a road trip, BBQing over charcoal in our backyard, holding a beer in his hand and telling his cool jokes with friends at our parties, or jumping in the pool like a cannon ball…He had the ability to make everybody laugh. He was such a fun guy to be around and certainly he lived his life the best way he could, with no regrets.
Marrying my man was the best decision I ever made in my life. I am grateful for every minute we had together. We used to tell each other how lucky we were to be each other’s husband and wife. We had 10 truly joyful years with the deepest love, happiest marriage, and most trusted partnership that anyone could imagine. He gave me the experience of being deeply understood, truly supported, and unconditionally loved. When I got upset, he stayed calm and helped me calm down. When I was worried, he reminded me how much I/we had accomplished so we can do it. When I wasn’t sure what to do, he figured it out.
The past 5 months has been a true testimony of how much he had left for us. People often told me I am very strong. But the truth is, I am carrying on all his love and that is why I am so brave. His love for life is already deeply rooted into our hearts. We may not have the quick wit he had, but we are all trying to pull a joke when we can. We may not always have the positive outlook he had, but we are trying to have more faith and believe everything will work out.
He certainly made a huge impact on not just his family, but also on many others too. I got an email from one of his co-workers and she shared with me the story of how Bob converted her into a charcoal girl. 😉 So today, let’s all use the best way Bob knew how to celebrate and have a toast for my man and celebrate his life!
