At last at peace
Thank you, abc, Doityourselfer, Tess, and Panini.
And there were also many joys and good memories, I'm just not feeling them now.
I know the feeling. I lost my mother Monday 10/28 after her battle with dementia and breast cancer. As much as I know it is a blessing that she is no longer in pain and reunited with my father after they had been married for 64 years, it is so final. The thought of never seeing her again is so sad. I'm sorry for your loss.
Thank you, Sayra, HB, Sunny, Charrlygirl and you, freshly grieving Sallie.
I feel as though I should be further along with planning the memorial, responding to cards and messages etc., but putting one foot in front of the other feels monumental right now. Sorry, end of whine. Trying not to stay too glued to the computer.
Craps, i2i. I'm guessing the inertia that you're feeling is probably pretty normal. I've thought more then once that when Mom dies, I'm going to collapse for a month, shut off the phone, close the curtains, crawl into the fetal position and stay there until my brain has cried all the pent-up stress, sorrow, and "now what?" fears away.
I'm sending you and your family peace as you work through the grief. Another tough road, but there's a better path ahead.
