    Why do you think you are suppose to forget ?

    How old are you, how long ago did he die, it takes time to grieve?

    Susan my wife, died about 25 plus years ago, I have remarried, had another wife die and remarried again, but have not forgotten Susan, a special song may play and still bring a tear to my eye. Moving on and getting on with life, does not mean forgetting.

    Fr_Chuck, that was so well said!

    When you lose someone to death, you become a different person. You make the person you lost a little part of you to carry around in your heart, how you think, how you treat other people, the compassion you have for them when they are grieving too.

    Talk to him as you go about your day. Laugh when he would have laughed, and be sad when something makes you wish he were there. Don't try to fight it.

    I have loved and lost in my 66 years. The last person was my dad, the sweetest man in the world. I have little ways of 'keeping' him around, such as wearing his slippers, despite being much too big for me. Boyfriends/husbands/friends, I have mementos. You can plant something. Draw a picture, write a story, for that person. He is alive in you.
