Reader's Diary #2215 - Emma Shea: The Widow

 In Emma Shea's short story "The Widow," the titular character finds herself at a DMV, going through the process of reverting her married surname back to her maiden name after being widowed a year ago. Not yet fully recovered from that shock, she feels this is an important step in her coping. While it is, it nonetheless has momentarily dredged up the pain and memories. 

Obviously an emotional story, it's handled with grace.
