Gordy'swidow.....I agree...the anticipation of what we will feel like.....what we will go through...the fear of the excessive pain....all adds to the anticipation....I always remember all of their birthday and anniversaries...and have suffered multiple losses....but you know..we miss them everyday.......and I think if we keep that in mind..it makes 'special' days less painful.....the build up ..is so bad......PEACE

Kerrie ...I think we all have to do that sometimes..it's helps us to regroup and gives us the rest we need....from such strong emotions....we're here if you need us....God bless....

Comment by Kerrie yesterday
Thanks for all the good thoughts. Only noticeable meltdown was when the daughter called to give me information on her fathers services. His organs are going to be donated and a kidney already has been. On train heading home after long work week..too many wracked emotions so might be hiding a little bit under pillows!

Kerrie, I just want to let you know that you have been in my thoughts all day. Again I am sorry what happened in your life in one day.
Comment by Leendah yesterday

I have learned it's okay to be sad/frightened/anxious with the chaos in the world.......But it's okay to let it go in a protective supportive environment and this is it.  thinking good thoughts for you Kerrie and sending good vibes.......
