Smile anyone a survivor of homicide

Hello, I'm 45 and was widowed 1.5 years ago when my husband was murdered in front of me.
I was left a widow with a baby-who is now nearly 3.
I live in South Africa where there is much violent crime but cannot find a support group.
I am looking for like minded others who are in a similar situation just so we can chat from time to time about how we're managing and what we're learning and sharing wisdom and generally caring and understanding from a position of really understanding.
Many thanks

Default Sharing Grief Together When The World Continues On Like Nothing Happened

I AM NOT HERE TO SHARE MONEY BUT COMFORT.
my friend was murdered in his own home. he was beat so bad that it was closed casket. THERE WAS TWO WEAPONS INVOLVED
it was his forUth time being robbed. I seen him sunday nigHt. he was murdered tueday morning. HE WAS FOUND IN THE AFTERNOON. HE DIED OCTOBER 23, 2012
i found these poems that have meaning for me.
relatives and friends, I AM ABOUT TO LEAVE; MY LAST BREATH DOES NOT SAY GOODBYE, FOR MY LOVE FOR YOU IS TRULY TIMELESS, BEYOND THE TOUCH OF BONY DEATH... I LEAVE MY THOUGHTS, MY LAUGHER, AND MY DREAMS TO YOU WHOM I HAVE TREASURED BEYOND GOLD AND GEMS. I GIVE YOU WHAT NO THIEF CAN STEAL, THE MEMORIES OF OUR TIMES TOGETHER; THE TENDER, LOVE FILLED MOMENTS, THE SUCCESSESS WE HAVE SHARED, THE HARD TIMES THAT BROUGHT US CLOSER TOGETHER AND THE ROADS WE HAVE WALKED SIDE BY SIDE... EDWARDS HAYS

ANOTHER I FOUND IS
YOU NEVER SAID I'M LEAVING
YOU NEVER SAID GOOD BYE
YOU WERE GONE BEFORE WE KNEW IT
AND ONLY GOD KNOWS WHY
A MILLION TIMES I NEEDED YOU
A MILLION TIMES I CRIED
IF LOVE ALONE COULD HAVE SAVED YOU
YOU NEVER WOULD HAVE DIED
IN LIFE I LOVED YOU DEARLY
IN DEATH I LOVE YOU STILL.
IN MY HEART I HOLD A PLACE THAT ONLY YOU CAN FILL.
IT BROKE MY HEART TO LOSE YOU.
BUT YOU DIDN'T GO ALONE,
AS PART OF ME WENT WITH YOU
THE DAY GOD TOOK YOU HOME
I GOT BOOKLETS TO READ.
I BOUGHT THIS BOOK I WASN'T READY TO SAY GOOD BYE BY BROOKE NOEL AND PAMELA BLAIR.
I AM IN SUPPORT GROUP.
