Family and friends sometimes stop listening without realizing the remaining spouse continues to be in need of compassion and understanding. People most likely have the best of intentions but remember they are on the outside looking in and cannot comprehend how your husband’s death has impacted you. Take care of yourself and look for the resources that will meet your needs.
