No one really knows what to say besides "how are you doing" but people should say What can I do to help you thru this", its a tough thing to figure out the polite way to address someone who lost a loved one ,I myself cannot stand the phrase "widow, it sounds like a disease and makes it sound like I am different

Ok, BTW, is it just me, or is anyone else having trouble with the COMMENT button? When I try to post, and hit the button it takes me several times for the comment to,post..but, I am also on a tablet, and it only works if I place the tablet on a hard surface and press the button several times.

STEVE.....this is my reply to your poem:
“It SURE DOES!!!!!” (Insert huge smile emoji here)

Well Deb..I guess after reading that i’ll Have to go boot the other computer so I can print that out and slap it on the wall..actually, that would be a very cool thing to have printed on a card, to hand to insensitive, and well meaning people to read.
Honestly, b4 I lost BOb, I was one of those people...I had no idea what to say when someone I knew had a loved one die.

Deborah P ...  Thank you so much for that poem.  It pretty much says it all.  Even after 61/2 years of losing Ernie, I still can feel the pain, but not as intensely.

Thanks, deborah. The song rings very true, oh, so true!
