Martina:  I am so happy to be your friend.  The pain does get easier as time passes, but for you it is only 5 months.  You need to just take one day at a time and not think too far in the future.  Losing a loving spouse is one of the most painful and difficult things to endure in this life.  Unless one goes through this themselves, it is very hard to explain.  That is why it is so comforting to come to this site.  I think you prefer communicating in English and that is fine.  I am so very sorry for the loss of your husband and may God be close to you and your sons to comfort and bless you all.  Ciao, Ellen
