Does It Get Better With Time?Katie: "Does it get better with time?"
Alex: "Yeah, yeah, at first I tried to avoid any place we went together. I tried to forget. I tried to put it all behind me. I tried to, you know, just look forward but it just didn't work and I realized that if I'm not thinking about her, who is? You know, and she was an amazing woman and I loved her. I want my kids to know that. I want them to know her. So, we're just keeping our heads down. I'm getting to play mom and dad, which is interesting. Just trying to keep it all together, really.
