September 29th will be our 36th wedding anniversary. This is the 2nd one without my husband. Dean passed away December 21,2007. He had lung cancer. I still wear my wedding rings. I also wear his and have since he lost so much weight he could no longer wear it. I can't even think of not wearing them. I still feel married, this is still our anniversary. I miss him so much. I know what to expect this anniversary. No one will call or come by to see how I am doing. To mention our anniversary that would be to difficult for them. What about me? Do they think maybe if they don't call or come by the day will pass and I might not realize what day it is? In the past years my sisters three of them would call to wish us a happy anniversary. I know it's hard, people don't know what to say. They don't have to say anything just call or come by. I will know they are thinking of me on our special day. Am I being unreasonable to feel this way. I still love my husband and it is still our anniversary....
