Being a Widower


“One of the toughest parts of being a widower is doing the things that my wife did. After she passed I had to learn a lot of stuff.

My daughter is going away and I had to pack all her stuff. It was very stressful but last night my daughter said how proud of me she was. “You are bald and remembered head bands and elastics.” I think that was one of the best things she could have said. Not because I am bald but because she knows that my world is all about her and all the hard work I do she can see and loves me for it.

I am not saying this to be full of myself I am just trying to say if a bald widower can remember hair products than I am sure you can do anything.”
