Someone died and I can't get them out my head

Someone I didn't really know very well died recently due to covid.

Only spoke to him in passing every few months etc, however both him & his wife are very lovely people.

I can't stop thinking of him and how nice a man he was and how lost his poor wife must be feeling.

For reference he was an older man in his late 70's so I'm not meaning I can't stop thinking of him in an attractive way etc.

Of course YANBU! It's very sad, poor man. You are entitled to feel as you do and no one can say you're unreasonable for that!

He made an impression on you, he was a nice man. Of course you'll feel sad. Could you perhaps send his wife a little card or a bunch of flowers to let her know you're thinking of her?

@Watchingstars88 thank you so much. Yes he certainly was a lovely man. I have plans to do a doorstep visit this week with his wife, will be dropping off some flowers and cakes.

She would appreciate the gesture I'm sure. It can make the world of difference to know someone cares. Flowers

His poor wife 😢
