I know for me, I was numb for the first 6 to 9 months, just doing what you have to, to get through each day. I look at my daughter and know that her life has changed and there is no way I can make it better for her. It will be 3 years for her in Oct. She has still not gotten rid of his car. I am not sure how she can handle looking at it every day. She does talk to the children a lot about their dad. There are pictures of him up all over the house. The youngest was only 9 months old when his dad passed. He lost him and then his Pop the next year. The older one is six now, and she loves to hear stories from her mom about her dad. If you could find a support group, that can be helpful. The problem in our area, my daughter could not find one that had any one her age, all the people were older. Hopefully you can connect with other people here with this site that can be a help to you.
