Steve, the words in your blog 'stay the course we set' resonated with me. My twins were 12 when I lost
Linda. Cancer, slow, you see it coming, but still hard. You always have the memories - they gave us all strength.
Now my girls are 20, and I often think they reason they turned out great is the work Linda did while I was away at work so much. I'm sure your friends and family
will be there to help - often they just need a hint as to how they can help the most. I'm sure you will do well - you already made a great start by posting
. Go well, give your boys the opportunities the both of you had planned - you need do no more than that.
