Since Pete's passing, I've received numerous invitations to visit people. I just haven't been ready
I'm the only person I know who can actually be embarrassed all by myself
I've become acutely aware of other people who have been thrust into this same ghastly spot

It had never occurred to me that people would be apprehensive to encounter me for the first time since Pete’s death.
You may not want to talk to me about Pete because you think it will make me sad–it might–or it might make me smile, or even laugh.
