How do you cope with a recent death? Especially that of your loved one?
Last month, a former co-employee died. Death is not something not to be expected. People die and it matters only on how death was served. This particular death however became the talk of the town.
The ‘leak’ was passed on the morning after. This former co-employee died, and in the house of , and with his other woman. It spread like wildfire that my initial reaction is this is a bad joke from somebody who must have hated him so much. It turned out true. He left one offspring with that woman.
I heard that in-between stories until recently, the legal wife still tells of how her husband was very nice and thoughtful when he was still alive. She hadn’t known of any other woman, she said, because she hadn’t seen any proof when she dug out his things and his wallet. Who among these fools would leave his traces, I asked in my mind.
Unknown to the wife, there was another woman that her husband was so in love with before, apart from the recent one. Her husband had bragged to me before that he had told her, his wife, that he didn’t love her anymore. The husband (aka bastard) had told this tale over and over. She had no idea what people are of her while she tells of the endearing stories about her husband.
I do not really know why she acts like everybody doesn’t know of anything. Perhaps she is still in denial. I just hope that this phase will get over soon, and that she’ll grieve and forget what happened and move on.
