Its OK to ask about Michael and how we are doing. Actually avoiding bringing him up makes us more uncomfortable then when people do bring him up.
Keeping his memory alive is important to us. Pretending this never happened by not mentioning him at all feels wrong. Sometimes we are left feeling like we shouldn’t bring him up. But we like talking about him and how can we not. He was a constant in our lives for so long that has been taken away, to not talk about him is to ignore the life we had with him.
For those that continue to ask, thank you.
