Well, time marches on. It's now been about 18 months since the love of my life left this world. I did join a good support group and attended this for about 15 months. But now I am feeling like I need to remove the 'training wheels' and go on my own. I can't say it's particularly easy. It's not.

I think we can all help each other. It makes us feel less alone. I no longer grieve as it as been several years but I remember the horrible pain. Sometimes a few kind words make all the difference to someone in their time of sorrow.
