The letter said that when you lose a spouse it is normal to want to date, usually sooner rather than later.
Imagine how nerve-wracking and terrifying it must be to find yourself alone after many years of marriage, without a touchstone or witness to your life, all while mourning an immense loss, and try to have sympathy for your parent.
Your previously prudish mother who ran background checks on your high school boyfriend (and his parents) may decide it's a good idea to invite a man she met online to fly across the country and stay at her house for two weeks.
