A tear formed as she tried to remember who she was without him.  Her name didn't even make sense to her with out "and Dan" attached at the end.

She fell to the ground.  She looked around at all the smiling pictures but now from underneath the pile of dirty laundry she couldn't quite remember what she was smiling about.
