To my dear friend on this site who have helped so much in the five months since losing my dearly beloved wife I would like to send a progress report and my deepest thanks...
Well, I am getting there but realize I will never arrive; the pain is still so acute and never a day goes by without shedding a tear or two, as I said previously I feel like half a Siamese Twin, after seventy years together as sweethearts..
However I have noticed a change, I have started a new novel and seem to be playing the organ more although “MOON RIVER” is an obstacle I haven’t been able to conquer, I can play it OK but singing it breaks me up and the same applies to “THE MOUNTAINS OF MOURNE”, they were OUR songs, I’m sure you understand.
I joined a bridge club today which will get me out of the house and I’m sure I will quickly get the hang of it
I can’t decide on the wording for my lovely wife’s memorial stone, how can you put into a few words a lifetime of love and friendship
I’m sure all of you reading this will realize the agony and grief of losing a beloved partner does fade slightly as the months pass by, but I repeat the wound will heal but the scar will be there forever.
