Marriage Doesn't End

This wonderful perspective on grieving and fulfilling marriage vows even after the death of one of the partners.

Bereavement is more than learning to separate from a spouse. Though I can no longer comfort Paul, the other vows I made on our wedding day — to love Paul, to honor and keep him — stretch well beyond death. The commitment and loyalty, my desire to do right by him, especially as I raise our daughter, will never end. And I am keeping another final promise.

  1. Somewhere else she wrote that deer often eat the heads of tulips and lilies and such that she puts on his grave. She thinks that is a good use for the flowers. What a woman!
