Ann Posted September 24, 2003 Share Posted September 24, 2003 Wow! Dennis has been gone since December 15th and I really thought I was adjusting well. That is...until last night. There is one room in our house that Dennis used for his office/hobby room. I have not yet been able to change that room or empty the contents. Dennis had all his favorite "toys" in that room. Well, last night while searching for some paperwork, I actually stumbled over his favorite pair of work boots. They were just sitting there with his socks folded neatly inside, as if he had just taken them off. Everything came rolling back! I relived things I hoped to never think of again relating to his illness. Who would have thought that such a small thing as a pair of boots could stir such emotions? What a terrible night I had. No sleep and I had to get up for work this morning! Today, I feel as if he has been taken from me all over again. But...those boots remain sitting there, almost as if they are waiting for him to put them on. I also have his favorite down jacket that I can't part with. You know...I can still bury my face in that jacket and it smells like Dennis. Thanks so much for listening...you guys are great and really help so very much!!!
