Letter to a Friend

<< < (6/6)

Lonely Joe:
   My wife passed away on June 14th. I found this forum a few days ago and it has really helped. It was good to know what some of the "normal" (as if anything is normal after this happens) things are that go on in the first few weeks.
 I started keeping a journal which has really brought me some comfort. I just write stuff down that comes to me throughout the day.
 I'm a high school counselor and have the summer off. I wonder if going back to work in August will be better or worse? Right now i just try to stay busy around the house, organizing closets, sorting through Elisabeth's stuff, and doing stuff for my teenage kids.

Bumping because this letter is so helpful
