“Death ends a life, not a relationship.”  Mitch Albom

How perfect?

So true, this would not have had meaning to me until DH died.  Thank you for sharing -

I believe this came from the book "Tuesday's with Morrie".  The quote resonated with me after my husband died and it is true today although I have remarried.  The relationship with LH will be a part of me forever as we had two children who were an integral part of that relationship.  My relationship with new spouse is equally a part of who I am today. 

Interesting how we come across a quote we haven't thought about and it makes an impact.  Thanks for sharing.

I love Mitch Albom's books.  That is a powerful quote.
I am reading his book "The First Phone Call From Heaven".  Another good quote from him related to this whole grieving process that is in this book-
"You have to start over.  That's what they say.  But life is not a board game, and losing a loved one is never really "starting over."  More like "continuing without."

It jumped out at me-had to share.
