I wanted to share one more thing. My father has recently published a book of short stories from his childhood. And in one of the stories he talks about
a man who died in his village, and all the ladies came together, discussing and saying that he was a lucky man, because he had someone who can cry for him. The exact verb in my language is continuos-definite, like cry for a while and then stop crying, meaning, there was a period of sorrow that would last, but would stop. He was a lucky man to have his family go through this process. I hope all of you special ladies, can live through this, with enough strength and hope.
