It wasn't a shock, he had cancer. But I'm so sad about it sad he was a lovely man, and his illness come on pretty quick. He was diagnosed at Christmas and now he's gone

Don't know why I'm posting this, suppose I just need to tell someone

Do you mean my DH? He seems to be dealing ok with it, but I do know that he'll have a cry later when he's away from home. Hes a bottl-upper so won't face it for a few days yet. I get sad straight away so by the time he gets upset, I'm pulling it together again, it seems to work well

I haven't spoken to the widow yet, nor has DH. Their son rang us with the news last night. DH is going to go visiting tonight

He's had to go to work, but I phoned a friend and he's come to sit with me. He's made me another coffee and I've pulled myself together a little. And I'm going out to my brothers soon, so I'll be ok, thanks
