Here are the words of a grandfather talking at his granddaughter’s wedding about the experience of losing a spouse, someone he loved dearly.
“People imagine that losing a loved one works kind of like missing cigarettes.
The first day is really hard and the next day is less hard and so forth, easier and
easier the longer you go on. But instead it’s like missing water. Every day, you notice the person’s absence more.”
~ Anne Tyler, Back When We Were Grownups
