I did not go looking for another partner Carole, I did not expect to marry again, I too was 55 when I lost Florence... Eirwen and I just happened out of the blue, totally unexpected and a bit of a whirlwind, if either of us had spent too much time thinking about it, it may not have happened, and now I would not have missed that nine years for anything as it was a privilege to be her husband. Marrying Eirwen did not diminish my feelings for Florence, but did help me to cope far better with them... but as you say I am now paying the price as grieving for both of them.. nothing for nothing in this life.........
