DEAR ABBY: We are a couple, married for 46 years. If my husband passes on first, I’m unsure about how to handle any services for him.
He has narcissistic personality disorder and, over the course of our marriage, he has made my life a living hell. I have grown to despise him.
I need to be respectful of his children and friends. Only a few close women friends know the situation. I want to have a proper remembrance for them that won’t involve too much of my presence. He will be cremated per his request.
Can you suggest how I should handle this?
