struggling with loss of role

For anyone who is bereaved or no longer providing care.
My eldest son was 29 when his dad died. He's the big, quiet, silent type, just like his dad was, found talking about what had happened very difficult, it was all just too bad. I just tried to let my son know that we'd get through our loss together, after all the whole family had lost my OH, not just me, and although our relationships may have been different, the loss was very similar. Gradually we both adjusted to our new situation, but it takes a lot of time, and more than a few tears.
It's just hard knowing that my husband chose this path and he has cut himself off from every single one of his family, his brothers and sisters included!
