I hadn't posted in a while but your post/story was so similar to mine I just had to. It's good to have a place where people just get it - my friends think they do but they don't. i say "its fine" a lot. Its just easier than trying to explain. Hope you have a great week.

Welcome momof3: I'm sorry for your loss but I'm glad you found your way to this site. I hope you will find the same comfort and understanding here at Widowed Village that I have.
