I had several of these moments and they feel like reliving the "death" all over again. After a while, you no longer dread those moments. People forget and continue with their lives, and they assume you do too. However, when the moments to share come up, they no longer cause the same pain, they allow you to share memories and those moments become rarer and rarer. I love talking about my Dad, but no one asks anymore.
Bright st blessings,
