|There is some very enriching emotion in this story. I appreciate how you detail the widows feelings. They are honest and personal.
People handle grief in so many various ways. It is good that you didn't make her sufferings anything standard. One can sense and empathize that she will be grieving and perhaps even feeling guilty for a long time. I feel for her.
Again, I really found your emotional writings quite stellar
Still, I was uncomfortable with a few aspects.
One, the spacing was awkward. Sometimes it's double spaced, other times triple spaced. Keeping it in the same format makes it easier to read and comprehend.
Second, is that line about the coroner really necessary?
Third, you begin with referring to the beautiful day, then the third paragraph tells us that, "It was rainy and unseasonably cold." I didn't realize until the last paragraph that the first referred to the funeral. Maybe make the opening sentence, "It was a picture perfect day", EXCEPT FOR HAVING TO BURY MY HUSBAND, or something like that.
Oh, one more thing; you spelled "brakes" incorrectly (paragraph 5).
Again, I find your emotional writing very moving. Keep it up.
