I knew back then that I would make it to this day, Day 30 Without Art.
I didn't know how.
I remembered today that it's not the "how" that matters. It's the
that I will eventually arrive that carries me through.
740 hours ago Steve Odefy gave his childhood friend his last shave. It was the first time he had ever shaved another man. He did it with a kind of grace and tenderness that made all of us in the room silent.
792 hours ago the kids said "Goodbye" to Art.
I have a photo of Langston and Art that I still can't bring myself to look at or post.
Helping Hands Tip
Offer to come to the house and keep them company. No need to talk, clean or be happy. Bringa a book! Sometimes just having another person in the house can make the person who is grieving or caregiving feel stronger.
