I lost my DH 3 weeks ago today. I go stir crazy at home and take my daughter out alot. Not to spend money but to play or window shop. I recently took off my rings to wear on a necklace around my heart.

I get looks sometimes when I am out with my daughter, and they look at her and me and then my left hand. Really people? I want to shout at them that she has a dad, but he died, so leave me alone. But why should I have to defend myself, especially in this day and age.

To top it off, we ran into an old couple who were out walking why we were waiting for the ice cream man. They were nice, but very nosey. They kept doing the look thing at my daughter and my hand, then at me. (we live a nice neighborhood, usually too expensive for me, but the market has allowed many young families to move in) So then when I went inside to get something, they turned to my aunt, who is staying with me, and proceeded to ask

I am so very sorry, Karri. So many people are too nosy and rude, that's true.

As for reading obituaries, I remember a friend of my parents long ago saying that with old age they have started to read the obituaries since so many of their friends were passing away. It was a comment that has stayed with me till now.

My condolences on your loss.
