I don’t think a widow or widower exists who has not been the recipient of stupid comments. In fact, my friend Meg sent me a link to a website specifically listing absurd things people have expressed to widows and widowers. When I read the website, some of the comments absolutely amazed me.
They broke my heart, too, because these individuals were grieving the loss of their spouses and were subject to incredibly stupid, and often mean, comments. I recognize that other people don’t realize how raw and sensitive you are as a widow/widower, but I’m baffled by the insensitivity of some people’s comments.
