What grief is

Judith died two years ago. We were deeply in love in our marriage of 61 years.
To help me the people of the crematorium sent me this:-
Grief never ends, but it changes. It’s a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith. It is the price of love.


Hi Bennerley
I have been on this journey a few years now so I can say that those words are so very true. How wonderful that you had such a happy loving marriage for 61 years what a wonderful achievement.
I do hope you are coping reasonably well as it is a really hard journey to navigate.
Best wishes


That is lovely, and rather comforting. I am almost three years into widowhood after 54years of a fantastic marriage. Highs or lows, our love saw us through. However many years you have had together, they are never enough, are they?


Very true the years flew by. Her photos, her embroideries, her travel journals sometimes reassure but sometimes deepen sadness.


Yeh thats what the queen said isnt it ? Grief is the price we pay for love … so true ! How did that lovely lady our late queen keep going after all the deaths she saw … her sister, her father, her mother, then finally her husband ! God bless her ! She was a strong woman you know x
