My husband as been gone for over 2 years now... I sometimes lie in bed alone remembering his funeral and some of the RUDE and NARCOTIC remarks given to me as I stoop over my husband in disbelief. I recall one of my husband's great aunts (my husband countn't stand her) she gave me a huge hug and said sweetly as if it was heartfelt and the best she could think to say..."we all make mistakes Carissa, of course none of us have made a mistake like you and Rusty have, but you are young...just walk away from this funeral and never look back" as if because I married rather young (18) and my husband died a year and a half later then it was surly a "mistake" because these kinds of things don't happen when you make the right choices about marriage. At church the week after laying my husband at rest, a lady whom I didn't even know came up to me to say she was sorry and "maybe next time I would think twice before getting married again" what is that suppose to mean? Am I "bad luck" or something?? I wanted to punch her so hard right in the face in the middle of church and yell "this is what you get to your STUPID commments"
Some people are excused I guess from their stupidity... I mean clearly there is something wrong with anyone who would make such comments at a time of clear pain.
I am just venting! :)
