Katie - like many others here have said, I think of you often. When my step-dad died in November, my mom sought out a griefshare class near her (it was about an hour away, but she went). It is a support group for those newly widowed. We (the kids) practically forced her to go. Here is their website if you want more info. Just plug in your zip to see if anything is close by, and its free.
GriefShare: Grief Recovery Support Groups

Also, if you would like to talk to someone who is a few months out from where you are (my step-dad died Nov 2007), pm me and I'll give you my mom's edmail address - they were married 30 years, so she knows how it feels. She has had a difficult time, they were very close like you and Buck.

I wish you strength for the days ahead, just take it one day at a time.

((HUGS))
Jennifer

my thoughts have not left you for long these past days, katie.

this next line has been written and erased so many times that i need a new keyboard.

so i'll just say that you are loved, by me and obviously so many here.

Thanks, bucky. I needed to see your post. I was doing pretty well until darkness closed in on me on the porch. I so enjoyed listening to the night sounds with Buck when we sat out on the porch in the evening. Now it seems so solitary. Even the outside kittens seem different.

This is my first "real" night by myself and I'm not handling it very well. I want my Buck back.

Awww (((((Katie)))))) I'm so sorry. Still don't know what to say.
Can't imagine being without my other half.... literally. My best friend.
Never feel like you need to stop crying. You have plenty of folks here willing and ready to cry along.
I know I am....
