Rough Day

I didn't really have a good day today. I went to the funeral of someone who is very special to me. I found out on Monday that the gentleman had passed away that morning. I'm very close to his wife. She is very much a mom to me. Brian and I both think the world of this couple. They were married for 50 years. We attended their anniversary party not too long ago. The same people at that party were at this funeral.
The pastor today said it wonderfully. They were best friends and soul mates. That was definitely the case with this wonderful couple. There are very few people in this world who find their best friend. I'm still not doing very well. All I can think about is that she is in the house with the dog and the cat. His belongings are still there. She says she feels numb. That sounds like a good way to be until you can deal with your grief when you are ready. You know what I really don't understand? When people say be strong. Why? Why do you need to be strong. Why can't you be however you feel. I suppose it is because they really don't know what to say. I also really hate hearing, I know how you feel. I strongly doubt that. Even if you too have sadly lost your soul mate, that is your grief. That is a feeling only you can feel. You have no business telling anyone you know how they feel.
I don't really feel like saying much else.
Night everyone.
