you can get back at him...but you must work very hard...to be more joyful than him...just take time to bless your children and spend time playing with your grad children without being obtrusive!!!!Be cheerful and happy and caring so that the pain fades away...

This is a terrible story - heartbreaking in fact and unimaginable.<br />
