Thanks for writing and sharing your story. It made me cry. You inspire me to share my story. I just lost my ex-husband in a somewhat similar way. He was an ex-husband, but he lived next door for 25 years and I’ve known him for 40 years. He helped me in every way, especially in raising my son who is now 18. Steve’s (same name even) been gone for two months, and I can’t believe what a huge hole there is in our lives and how close to the surface my grief still is.
I tried to type in two spaces after the period but it won’t let me.
