I was trying to explain to someone how grief felt to me. This is how I explained it.
I am happily married to my high school sweetheart. I am the mother to Kate and to Douglas who died in May 2012 at age 27. I am the nana to Kate's daughter Abby. Kate had a baby boy this May and he is named after her brother, my son, Douglas. This path of grief is difficult. But I will find my way.
