Hello @Heartbroken.
I am devastated for you. Such shock and grief must be incredibly difficult to feel right now. It sounds like you are making a fantastic effort, you sound very brave and strong. These habits you’re building now should support your healing, although sometimes we find something unique that works better for us, and that’s ok too. Self-care is vital and that can come in many forms! Have you, or both you and you partner, considered a grief counsellor and/or support group? Sometimes a little help from a professional can support these efforts and prepare you for what’s ahead.

For your beautiful husband, have you considered that he (or both of you) could make things from him, for grandchildren to view or receive as they grow? If he is creative, perhaps he could make future gifts? Or maybe videos or cards? Many people find that this helps connect the lost loved one with the children. Making projects with or about lost loved ones to share with others can create a connection and way to honor those people.

I hope you are able to find support to help you through your grief soon.
T.
