Widowed At 39

My much loved husband died suddenly 6 years ago. I felt completely lost without him and like some kind of freak. Widows are meant to be old. I remember attending a family gathering a few months later and a cousin's wife refused to make eye contact with me all afternoon. It was like I didn't exist. Another thing I found strange was the need for my Mum and my aunts to keep sending me cards on the anniversary of husband's death - why do they think I need to be reminded of the worst day of my life.

I do not know your Mum and aunts, but I can only guess is that they want to show support for you on the worst day of your life. I am sorry for your loss!
