  1. Indeed.
    There is a creepy sensation realizing someone has been dead all this time. It jars one's mentality - the crash of a belief that isn't true.
    One of my favorite short stories is "A Painful Case". In it, the subject discovers by accident by reading a newspaper his estranged lover (whom he hasn't seen in some years) had died. The narration of his reaction - and its conclusion "He felt that he was alone" captures this feeling spot-on.
    I am sorry for your loss.
