Awww Rob, I'm so sorry for your loss, so sorry.
Thanks, it's been over four years but feels like last month.
But that's the way life goes, unless you both hit a concrete bridge at a hundred miles an hour, or something. You find yourself split between thinking of all the wonderful years, getting angry at you know not what (it's pointless), and then feeling lucky to have had the good experience for so long. As I said, it goes round and round... I suppose the thing gets magnified by the emptiness which isn't loneliness as one would ordinarily imagine it, but something quite different.
But, it's not really anything one can chat about much, so again, thanks for your good thoughts.
