I wrote about this subject almost a month ago,then last night I recieved a phone call from a friend of my late wife. They had been friends since early childhhood, although in the last 20 or so years didnt see much of each other due to her living in another state, they did call each other every few month or so.Usually she told my wife about her problems.
I had spoken to her in the summer, she called to tell me she remarried, it is her 4th time, other marriages ended in divorce. She called because it was Christmas time and wanted to see how I was doing, and told me how much she missed my wife. Then she told me how good I was to my wife and wished that I would someday mmet another woman, that would be good to me. I told her that was not in my plans. She then asked if I had did anything with my wifes belongings ,I told her they are just were she left them. She offered to come over in the spring and help me if I wanted. I told her it would not be needed. She then asked if I would give her a piece of my wifes jewelery to remember her by. My wife was not into jewelery, mainly just costume jewlery,except for her engagement and wedding band. Not sure if I should send her something my daughter doesn't want just to shut her up. She them mentioned again about hoping I find another woman to keep me company ,I again told her it will never happen. I think I should just loose her number, and ignore any future calls from her. About ten years ago when my mother inlaw passd away, this womans mother told my wife that her mother always said that if she had an extra thousand dollars she would love to give it to her. My wife just let it pass,but we did say to each other,she had some nerve saying that.I guess her daughter is just like her. I wrote this because the phone call has been bothering me all day,just like some opinions.I know if I tell my daugher,she would call her up and tell her off.Best to keep it to myself and avoid any trouble?
You know Jerry some people are just plain dumb and always stick their foot in their mouth. This woman sounds like she doesn't have a clue. I would ignore her comments and not bother telling your daughter about the call and just forget the whole thing happened. I definitely wouldn't send her any jewellery, I think she is just out to see what she can get. That is only my opinion, but I wouldn't lose any sleep over this woman.
