"Here's an exercise to understanding the loss of a life partner. If you have a partner... review this week of your life. How much the two of you:
- interacted with one another
- spoke to each other
- relied on each other
- had meals together
- laughed and cried with each other
- held one another.
NOW imagine the same week withOUT that person! That's what a widow/er lives every week, month and year."
