Comment of the Week
This is a comment I would like forwarded to the author, Dr. Feuerman.
I was so moved by your article that I printed it and will probably read it at a session I am doing as part of an adult education series for our Reform Congregation.My husband a”h died eighteen months ago after a very sudden and short illness. My son has always been a caring, considerate “child” and now at 48, he has returned to Oklahoma City to live and work mainly so that he can be available for me. He calls me every day and always tells me where he is and wants to know where I am. It’s so important to know that after your soul mate dies that “someone” still alive is caring about you and for you. I hope that you will do for your father what you did for your mother.
Thank you for expressing yuorself so beautifully.
