I know it's hard right now.  Everything you see or hear reminds you of him.  In time, though, those same things will evoke sweet memories instead of pain.  I always liked the following poem.  Perhaps if you can see Mike's passing this way, it will help:

Do not stand at my grave and weep;

I am not there.  I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.

I am the diamond glints on snow.

I am the sunlight on ripened grain.

I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the morning's hush,

I am the swift uplifting rush

Of quiet birds in circled flight.

I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry;

I am not there.  I did not die.

((((Sandi)))), I know right now you are devastated and see no bright spots. You just see reminders of Mike that make you miss him more. I promise that as time goes on those same reminders will warm your heart when you think of him. You will still miss him but it won't be this same devastating feelings that you are experiencing now. All of your feelings are part of the grief process. I was told that a person had to tell their story 100 times before they were healed. I don't know it that count is true or not, but talking about your loved one does help.

If you have a hospice bereavement group or any bereavement type therapy in your area I urge you to go. I was able to force myself to go 6 months after my husband died.......it was one of the best things that I could do for myself. It gave me the tools to deal with all the different feelings that kept popping up with me...... At that time I really believed that I was going nuts......but I found out, that it was all normal........part of the process.
Just like this forum is wonderful for people dealing with liver disease to be able to talk with others going through the same things.......I found out going to a bereavement group was wonderful for the same reasons.

Sandi, my email is in my profile.......Feel free to email me if you would like.

Lot's of thoughts and prayers.........
