Yesterday, I realized it was 6 months since the love of my life, Mary Jane, aka MJ, passed away. The effect of this realization was softened by being surrounded by family. I am visiting our daughter Karen, and her family, leading up to Thanksgiving. MJ would have enjoyed this visit with Karen, her husband, and three grandchildren. Today, I was treated to a driving tour of Honeoye Falls, New York, and environs. It strongly reminds me of Andover, Ohio, where MJ and I grew up. And so it goes–reminders of the life we shared.
I posted the above message on my Facebook account and have received several comments about how family and friends around makes it easier.
