Patton Oswalt Reflects on Wife’s Death: ‘There’s No Closure’

”Memorials are hopeful but they don’t bring back the dead,“ comedian writes

A month after his wife’s death at age 46, comedian Patton Oswalt is still struggling to come to grips with the loss.

The “King of Queens” alum took to Twitter on Sunday to reflect on his wife’s death, writing, “Funerals are final but there’s no closure. Memorials are hopeful but they don’t bring back the dead.”

Oswalt included a picture of Michelle McNamara, who died suddenly on April 21.

Earlier this month, Oswalt described McNamara, the founder of the website True Crime Diary, as a devoted mother.

“She approached motherhood with the same bemused optimism she met everything else with,” Oswalt told People. “She loved being a mother.”

He added, “I’m struggling to continue through this shipwreck.”

The pair married in 2005. In addition to Oswalt, McNamara is survived by their 7-year-old daughter Alice.
