I met K. when I attended a local widow’s support group nine years ago. K. and I were the only members of the group who married again. My second husband Stephen passed away almost two years ago after a short battle with cancer. K.’s second husband passed away unexpectedly just over the past few days. I wish I knew the right words to say or write to K. during her bereavement…but I can’t think of anything that would be helpful.
I understand her pain though. I can only hope that she won’t suffer with her grief as long as I have been suffering with mine.
