So very sorry. Know that many here do understand. She was clearly a wonderful partner in your adventures. One measure of a person is the hole they leave. Did you find a forum or thread for people in the same situation? That seems like a really good idea, very useful.

Yes I did.
On Facebook is a private group surviving the loss of a spouse. A great group and wonderful people. I wish that this group put a link to that group to make it easier for others who has lost a spouse or partner.

Johndale, Please accept my condolences. Time will diminish the feeling of loss but don't allow time to diminish the memories. I lost my wife 5 years ago on Thanksgiving morning and have been traveling with my Beagle Charlie ever since. Don't make any major decisions for a while so your emotions won't dictate the outcome. Best of luck in your future travels.

John, though I don't know you, the Lord does. And you have all those memories to recall with her! Your note just struck me how much in love you two were over those years. My love of my lift is the same age as your dear wife was. We both have said that if one of us goes first, we're not too sure what we would do, but God does have us all in his hands. Gently think of her and the eternal glory she must now be experiencing in Paradise. One day, we will all be together again - pleasant thoughts my fellow-RV'er!

Stephen Ministry has a wonderful volume of booklets that walk you through the many stages of grief. I have bought them a couple of times after receiving my first set after my mother passed away too quickly and too soon. I believe it's stephenministry.org. I gave my set away before I had a chance to read them - to a gentleman at our local grocery store who has just lost his wife. He told me later they really helped.

I watched my dad go through this life change, as well. He said he felt as if he were surviving only by animal instinct. I'm sorry for your loss.
