DeeDee, I'm brand new here, and just by chance clicked on your photo. My husband of 40 years also died on November 23. I'm in the same crazy state you are, trying my hardest to cope, but having days where I can't stop crying. It's been horrible. Fortunately, I have friends who contact me daily, where other ones wait for me to contact them. Strange how people react to death. Anyway, I just wanted to reach out to you considering we both lost our soul mates on the same day. Sending hugs to you and everything good.
