I’m Terrified of Crossing The Road By Myself & I Still Can’t Do It Without Him

“My husband and I had the best time after he retired. We would never be idle – we used to paint together, spend hours cleaning and redecorating the house, watch the 6 o’ clock mass together on TV and cook our meals together.

But his favorite thing to do was to go for long walks in the evening, where he would hold my hand during every crossing and only let go once we reached the other side!

He passed away peacefully in his sleep 12 years ago, but I still want more time with him. I try and keep myself busy by going to my daughter’s house for lunch and dinner and going to mass whenever I can, but it isn’t quite the same without him.

At 89, I can say I’ve lived a great life and nothing really scares me…except one thing which I would have never admitted to him then, but I’m terrified of crossing the road by myself and I still can’t do it without him.”
