Heart wrenching. Ain't it just. I often think I have nothing left of my heart to be tortured so. But the tears still come so I reckon I must. I like to hold that my heart went with her. She owned it completely. And I gave it willingly. As she did with me. When a y friends see me in my misty state and tell me to toughen up my middle finger comes up as a reflex response. My grief and pain are mine, and I'll manage it as I see fit.

Oddly, it's her small circle of friends who understand me best. Not my own. They've been wonderful, and truly the do know what I'm going through. As has my son. But I raised him right. He knows that being strong and being a man doesn't mean you have to turn off pain like this. I wish you well Curmudgeon. And don't be one bit ashamed of those tears. Love like that deserves them.

Wow. That was by far, the most accurate article I've ever read on the subject of grief.

Good find.

Thank you Curmudgeon for sharing the link. My grief, love, memories, joy, sadness weaves in and out of my heart every day for the son I lost. There is no time limit. My heart and prayers go out to you for the loss of your wife.

I am sorry for your loss Curmudgeon, I remember you from the retirement forum and "usually" enjoyed your comments. Again, I offer my deepest sympathy.
