The initial details of how you went through the motions of accepting condolences, organizing funeral arrangements etc. Only when your life assumes its routine once again, may the grief really hit you. An outfit that still carries her favorite perfume; the strain of a song that you enjoyed dancing to together.
And once the memories come back to haunt you, there seems no escaping from it.
Losing a spouse must surely be one of the toughest things to cope with.
Your marriage may not have been perfect, and like all relationships, had its fair share of ups and downs.
But unlike those heading for the divorce courts, you were reasonably happy together.You may have been married a few years, or been together for twenty, with kids and maybe even retired.
