You did an outstanding job describing how grief just eats away at you. Too bad the funeral director didn't say it takes most people a year. I've found there is no set time. I've been grieving daily over my mom for close to 17 years. Both my brother and sister grieved in totally different ways. Great message.
fantastic piece and so well written. I do hope you get placed in the top few with this.
your descriptions of grief are moving and i think many who have lost loved ones will be able to relate to this.
some great descriptions such as grief creaping up as an alley cat
The description of the grief and loss could not be more true. Dan sounds like a wonderful husband!

I am glad you can sometimes concentrate on the happy times.

My brother died 15 years ago, but I still have times when I see something that reminds me of him.
YAY!!! well done!
Congratulations on your well deserved win! Your story really resonated with me.
This is so touching and so well written. Congratulations on your well deserved win.
Way to go Sandra! Great story and well written.
I cried the whold way through this. Though so often I've been frustrated with my husband, your story made we realize how fortunate I am and how much I love him. Thank you. And congratulations on your first place!
I can spell! I meant whole, not whold!
