It is good that you found us; bad that you had too. Your grief is very new and what you are feeling is totally normal and reasonable. I'm at 1.5 years since the passing of my young wife (she was 50). It still hurts and I still get…"
"Hi KMA - Yes. I've noticed that too. People think after a year you should start getting over it. They have no idea. There are many days I just don't want to do anything but sit and stare out the window. Spring is hard for me because my…"
