One year ago this weekend

we had my foster moms funeral. I have been surprised this past year how many I have wanted to tell her something or discuss something her. It's amazing how that happens and when a person is goner you really notice it.

2. You're right, it is very hard. I'm glad that your relationship involved so much sharing and caring.

Sounds like she was really something special. I'm sure she passed that on to you. Hugs to you.

3. That is why it is so important to talk to the living.

Even if the conversation is going to be hard. A person can't resolve issue with the dead or tell them how much they meant to the living.

5. having just lost my sister,

my niece (her daughter) sent me this analogy of grief. It's not something people really talk about so this analogy really helped me understand it. Like you, I keep thinking I have to tell her things or send something on the internet. Anyway, the baall and the box explains why we never really get over it, but we do get through it.

6. Lost my mother and brother within 6 months of each other.

That was over a year ago, and I still find myself wanting to call them to talk about something or other. It is hard!
