My sympathies also to you and your family, Petal, upon this loss. It always seems to me that more people pass away during the holiday season than any other time of year. I am glad you got through it all right, and my prayers are with you.
Bonnie, I received a lot of help by coming to this wonderful forum, and I am sure you will too.
Losing someone you love is always a sad thing, but during the holidays makes it more difficult. Know that all of us here are grieving with you and hope that with time and God's love you and your family will get through it. My love and prayers are with you and your family and you know where to find us when you need us.
I'm so sorry Petal I didn't see that posting. You have my deepest sympathy. It looks like it got past most of us.
When someone passes over the holidays its a terrible thing. My Grandma passed away on Christmas Eve years ago. Mom has a hard time every year remembering the pain of her Moms death.
I'm so sorry for your family.
Thanks my friends...I appreciate your kind thoughts. I hadn't made a seperate thread in reference to loosing my FIL...just had mentioned it in a couple of my posts. It is a blessing he is not suffering now; his body shut down about 3 weeks before...same as MIL last Christmas. He was 92.
He passed away the 27th, 4 years after diagnosis. My Oregon daughter came in the day before, so her 4 day stay went much too quickly! Funeral was "interesting" with 1 brother not talking to the other 2........sigh.....
UPBonnie I appreciate you mentioning our loss...and want to also welcome you to these forums. All here surely know your frustrations and worries.........please post often...........Pam
(I see you're from the Upper Peninsula...my absolute favorite place! I have one garden full of those beautiful Lake Superior stones...and I gather more each summer!)
I am soo sorry about your loss. It is lerrible enough that you lost your FIL, but to loose him at the holidays is even worse. It makes the holidays even harder. You are in my thoughts and prayers, as are your family..
