  • My grandmother passed away recently, its harder especially not seeing her at baby showers and holidays, but I try to think of all the good times we had together and that shes not suffering any longer sorry for your loss

  • My father passed away in November. It's difficult sometimes because I was his caregiver and lived right next door. It gets easier with time, just focus on getting through each day and don't worry about the bigger picture. As far as special events, birthdays, holidays, etc. it helps to do something special to include them through memory, lighting a candle, writing a note, etc. Many people also find it helpful to have a special place to think of their loved ones, a small memory garden, etc.

  • One step at a time. Time will make it not hurt so bad, but they'll always be in your heart.
    Remember the good times, and don't be afraid to talk about them and to cry, *hugs*

  • Lost my mom. It was sad, but with kids you have to keep moving forward and it helps that she lived a full life.

    Best wishes!
