My husband passed in mid-March 2020 after a brutal but relatively short battle with pancreatic cancer. We married later in life and had 20 action-packed awesome years together.
Our county went on COVID19 SIP less than a week after he passed, so these first few months have really been a challenge -no memorial service, slogging through paperwork with so many entities in shutdown/restricted mode, etc.
Plus, there is nowhere to get away and clear my mind. I can't go to so many of the wonderful places that hold treasured memories. Not that I think I'll find him in those places, I just want to wrap my senses in what is familiar, comforting and treasured to celebrate my soulmate.
