An open letter to my late wife Bea about grief, loneliness and hope.


I just about qualified as Widowed And Young when you died, being as I was 48 in February 2017. I've documented much of that journey before in my blog so I'm not going to rehash that.

In the intervening 2 and a half years I'd almost got to the point of acceptance. I've enjoyed life but no matter how good the night out, how much fun the race, it was still an empty bed I returned to. You persisted in being gone despite how much I told you I missed you.

I've kept things going and I still tidy up and arrange the cushions on the bed as I know you'd like that. I wasn't living though, your memory tied me to a past I could not return to. I done my best for the kids but I'm afraid the garden's a mess, I will sort it.
