10 Stupid Things People Say to Widows - About Holidays

Hiya folks,

   In my book Poor Widow Me I wrote a 10 Stupid Things People Say About... for each chapter topic.  This is how I end each chapter. 

   Since the holidays are creeping up this one is for Holidays.  If anyone has any to add, please let me know and I'll blog it here. 

 And, please let me know which one of these is your favorite.  Is this an assignment? Sure sounds like one. Ahhhh...I hate assignments. Don't do it!

   Love & kisses,
