On a more personal note…

Thank you everyone for the kind words on my post last week.

There’s not much to say — this is the first weekend since all our responsibilities regrading the funeral and funeral rites are over, and there’s such a sense of unreality about it all.

Grief is circular, or so I’m told: you move past it, but you never really leave it behind. I worry about my mother, especially, now that the two closest people to her have passed away (my father and now her sister). Her sister was her strength after she lost my dad, and I worry about her after this.

I still don’t know how any of us are supposed to act but routine is good, routine and work and blogging helps. It’s a start.

    I am so sorry to hear about your aunt. Cancer does suck, and there seems to be no rhyme or reason to who it affects. It’s so unfair. Grief is different for everyone, but I agree it can be circular. Most days you think you’re doing good, but then you’ll remember something and it hurts all over again. I wish you and your family the best in gaining some peace.

  • I am keeping your family in my thoughts. It is hard to lose someone you love and depend on so much.

  • I’m so sorry about the loss of your aunt and I’ll be keeping you and your mom in my thoughts and prayers. And yes, cancer is the worst. I really hope that I live long enough to see a time where all types have a cure.

  • Thinking of you – and your mom! I can’t imagine losing two people that I’m the closest to; just one would be hard enough. I do think grief is circular though. If you need anything, let me know!!!
