“Sometimes I think the human brain really is a wonder – it protects us from things that are too painful. It makes us forget even the beautiful moments so we don’t have to endure the feelings of loss.”
L.A. Detwiler, The Widow Next Door

“Old age is much worse than anyone could prepare me for. It’s much sadder, emptier, darker.”
L.A. Detwiler, The Widow Next Door

“When you get to a certain age, it’s almost impossible to tell what is your own original thought and what you’ve heard from someone else.”
