I love this entry. So well written and poignant. And, if it is true, I am so sorry for the struggles you have been through.

I have never lost someone close to me, but I love to pull out one of my husband's sweatshirts and wear it in the winter. I would like to think if anything ever happened to him, that that shirt would give me solace and keep his memory alive.

If this is true, I'm sorry to hear of all you've been through. I really liked your comments about the sweatshirt in the last paragraph, and it was a nice way to bring in the topic. Keep writing.
This is a true story.
What a poignant story! Hope this places!

This story touched my heart, your honest forthright telling of your life with Stan was palpable in terms of your hurt, grief, and cathartic cleansing, which you could not have done "alone" as you well know. God was with you through it all.

I'm sure you'll wear that sweatshirt again one day, when God feels you're ready. Until then, may you find joy in your "new journey" and may God bless you abundantly.

Thank you for sharing.

What a touching story. GOD does heal all wounds. Bless you and keep writing.
You did a nice job of showing how grief can impact us in many different ways. I think another thing you might not want to forget are the bad times and mistakes you made so you could make sure you didn't repeat them in your new marriage. Good job.
Your story was so touching, I'm glad it got HC ratings, if it were my choice, you would have gotten ten blue ribbons!

Blessings to you~
