I remember the first time that I had to write out the word WIDOW.  I was lying in the hospital filling out paper work. This was an identity that I couldn’t even imagine embracing.  The reality of my new status made me ill, and I was so overcome with emotion that I couldn’t finish the task at hand.
Sometime shortly afterwards, I received a very touching note from a cousin who had lost her husband several years before I did.  It spoke to me like nothing else and I have never forgotten how meaningful those simple words of compassion were to me at the time.
