Rantings from a Really bad week...

I haven't written about it because I just couldn't bear having people read about how much I missed my son for the eleventy billionth time, and how I was spitefully angry at people who have "worse" heart disease than my son had but are still alive. I even resent that flags are at half mast for the Pope when they weren't for my W. The Pope never hugged me!

A sweet neighbor told me " You know I still think about him, and many people still remember him. He is not forgotten."

Wow. It feels so comforting to have someone say that.

I've resented the flags at half mast too. I got a letter from Rutgers that we read at the funeral saying that they would have their flags at half mast, but I didn't notice them. I looked but it was so soon after my husband died, I wasn't going to complain that the flags weren't there. I was complaining he wasn't!

go on. keep talking about your son. really. makes me feel less alone in missing my husband still.

I won't forget.
Once I knew, I also knew I would never forget.

Love never ends.

Greg died three and a half years ago, and I miss him every day.

There were people I couldn't speak to after Greg died, because I was so furious that they were alive and he was dead.

My problem is so similar... so many I have loved have died.. and no one has mourned them anywhere near the "celebrity" status... People who have killed themselves.. who have purposely harmed themselves... who have been immoral and have been horrible human beings.. are still being mourned... but those I love have been forgotten except by a few. My loved ones did no less good than the Pope...
