My grief counselor suggested I join a support group after Greg died, and I’m so thankful she did. Through it, I met one of the best friends I’ve ever had, even under the most tragic of circumstances. Timothy lost his husband around the same time I lost Greg, and was suddenly a single father to the loveliest little girl you could ever dream of, Beatrice. Timothy and I have shared more hugs and tears than I can count.
