And So It Begins...

The flowers from the funeral are just about dead. All of the out of town relatives have left. The food that people brought over is just about gone or ready to be thrown out. The phone doesn't ring that much. Not very many texts coming in. No more sympathy cards in the mail. Tomorrow will be two weeks since my partner of 15 years, John, died of what is assumed to be a massive heart attack. He was already gone by the time I found him.  He was 54 years old. The last two weeks have been a blur. I…See More

Corona is making my partner's passing so much more difficult

I lost my long time partner suddenly on March 9th. Needless to say, it's been a nightmare but corona is making it even worse. Very few family and friends have reached out to support me, how can I blame them when the world as we know it has disappeared due to the virus. We were lucky to be able to hold a funeral.
