Today is Tuesday, two more days to go until I never can see my husband again. I have been going to see him at the funeral home every day for the best part of a week and I find this upsetting but also a huge comfort to me - I can see him and talk to him filling him in on the little things he has missed since his passing. What I cannot get my head around is that after tomorrow evening thats it, no more, end of! I think I am in total denial over his death and many people are telling me what I need is closure however I don't see it this way, as long as I can see him I can get through the day doing the mundane stuff most of us do am I supposed to carry on when I can't "visit". I have many memories and photos but I am struggling to recall and look at these and basically I am terrified that I won't be able to picture him when I need to.
