I cry my silent tears.
My heart is broken into a million tiny pieces.
The silence is deafening to my ears.

To lose the man they have relied on for so long can be utterly devastating.

It is a pain so deep, the human mind only comes to accept the harsh reality gradually. Widows and her supportive friends and family can honor their loved one by recounting a kind gesture or amusing stories involving him.
