‘It’s good to see you’re moving on.’ It’s been 2 years since my husband died. I’ll never ‘get over it.’: Widow candidly shares ‘gut-wrenching’ moments of grief, ‘our memories are fading’

“I found myself in the deodorant section at the grocery store for a really long time. I opened, breathed in every men’s Right Guard stick until I found the sport one. I held it close to my nose. I didn’t cry. I wanted to. But there was a guy behind me, browsing gift cards. I figured he’d find it really odd to see a woman weeping at the smell of antiperspirant in aisle 11. I’m trying not to forget his smell, but it’s fading.”
