"Hi Monster Kitten,    I feel that way too. I cry when things remind of what we use to do together. even if it's just a song he use to sing to me. I'll usually end up crying in my car while listening to music. Susan"

"I cry..not as much as I thought..I do have moments, but that's what they are, tearful moments that turn quickly into a small smile...our memories do that for me."

"Hi WittyBlondWolverine ~ My Dave died on April 30th. He was ill for 6 months. I was prepared for his death (he was 88) but I was NOT prepared for the terrible grief that would follow. I didn't know I could sink so low. I felt like I was going…"
