Ask John & Russell

You can be strong, or you can be human, pick one! (Published 10/9/2012)

Q:

Dear sirs, I lost lost my husband of 7 years to cancer on March 22, 2011. I’m 50 and he was 59. I did not believe I would ever be a widow at 50. I was divorced 17 years before we met. Will the pain ever go away? How do I move on? I’m usually a strong person but I just don't seem to get out of this emotional mode.
