Topic: having to deal with people
My Wayne passed away on Feb. 17, 2010. I have been told by a few people to get over it. I'm like the nice southern lady, that her upbringing made her not attack the person that said that. The first time it was said to me was in May my boss told me this three months after he went to heaven. Yesterday I received a letter from someone, that told me that she had been patient with my, that I needed to step up to the plate. I was surprised at that one because last year she lost her brother to a head on collison. I guess some of these people are so harsh even though they have had southern upbringing, hateful comes from all locations, colors, sizes and age.
They believe not knowing any better is a excuse for being mean, no not even ignorance is.
I will be the first to admit I have been having a difficult time, I go to the counselor once a week. Sometimes a feel like I need to go everyday just to keep me feeling good about myself. I have a small family locally, Wayne had a large family, but he made a choice to not tell anyone. They are mad at me for not telling them, even though Wayne didn't want them to know. I haven't heard from any of his family since the funeral, but you know we had only been married for 36 years.
I'm not a widow, I am a wife
We are only apart for heaven's sake
You are waiting for me at heaven's gate
