Re: Yes, there is a way to not suffer


Spending time with my DIL Michelle...in pictures with the kids, she is always smiling..but today, we had another quiet talk and she cried and told me how hard it is and how much she misses Jason...she said it's not getting easier, it seems to be getting harder. And this is even with another man in her life. She just can't get over the pain of losing him. And so we talk...until the boys noticed and they come to her and ask her what's wrong and they stroke her arm or her back to let her know they are there for her. So sweet. I told them that it's ok, she's just sad but she will be ok, just reassure them. I suffer the loss of my son much differently than she is suffering the loss of her husband of 4 years. She said they were on such a high of love when he died and she sees her friends in crappy marriages and divorces, etc. and how unfair it is that he, the love of her life, was taken from her. And I have no real words to comfort her because I agree... it is so damn unfair.
