Teddy Roosevelt's Diary the Day His Wife Died

0


Teddy was just 25 when his first wife, Alice, died of Bright's Disease two days after the birth of their daughter. After her death, he never spoke of his wife publicly again and even deferred his daughter's questions about her mother to other family members. Her name was also Alice, but because it reminded Teddy too much of her mother, she became known in the family as "Baby Lee."

That is so sad. It is amazing how one single sentence can pretty much sum up what it is like to lose a spouse or someone that you love very much.
