The kind of patience they have for children, I’ve tried a lot, but there were times when i lost my composure and my frame of mind i had to try to be both mom and dad when i went to parent teacher meetings at school i usually saw mothers i rarely met a man there but his wife would be there “At that moment I would feel a sense of deep insecurity. I would feel where the men are.”
He added: “It’s very painful. A lot of it I don’t want to remember. A lot of it I wouldn’t wish on anyone, situations like that. It looks easy in movies, so often movies show someone a widower. But start over again is not easy at all.”
