Don't grieve alone; 13,000 members and growing
Haven't been here for awhile. September will be 2 years since I lost Joe. The grief continues. I still sign both of our names on birthday cards and Christmas cards. Not ready to let him go yet. Only one of his best friends continues to call. Upsets me a little, but I have been guilty of the same. When I call other friends(close friends of both of us), I usually hear, "I didnt know what to say to you!"........... Try 'how are you' is what I think, but don't say!
I'm thankful that his family(and mine) are so supportive. It's just different coming from friends.
Maxey, you are so right about other people. I don't think we will ever get over the death of our spouse,....sad to say, but true. After 41 years of marriage, it will take me that long to get over it! All I can do with other people is to remind them to tell each other that they are loved. You can never say "I love you" too much.
