From what I've read so far I gather that most people here were legally married so perhaps legal issues were tidier than mine at the time of your partner's death. What I'm wondering is if anyone had legal complications with wills or life insurance after your partner died. I wasn't legally married but my partner and I had been together for eight years and were engaged. Immediately following his death his brother and daughter "raided" our condo, taking his laptop and emptied his desk. They refused to acknowledge our engagement at the funeral or in his obituary (designating me as his "longtime companion"). His daughter is contesting his will (actually saying that he died intestate) which left half of his estate to me and half to her. They tried to get me to move out less than two weeks after he died. It's been hell, to put it quite plainly! Grieving is hard enough without all these other ugly issues. I'd be interested to hear any other experiences similar to what I'm describing. Thanks!

When I was awake this morning I was thinking of writing a note to thank the people who has helped me in the grief journey. I think this message provided me with the motivation (ie. I don't need this s$%^!).This question is one of the most hurtful question you can ask to a fellow griever. But I can imagine why you are questioning my validity. I'm sorry I don't feel the need to show the death...
So it seems my grief is taking me to some dark places. What if the end of life in this world actually is the end of our consciousness and all aspects of our existence are no more. Our soul does not move on as it too is non-existent. Am I alone in thinking these grim thoughts? Is this part of the grief and mourn continuum.
