When my children were little we were all in the car and a really bad storm was all around us, the kids were in panic mode so I said "Don't get scared unless you see me get scared". My wife and kids remembered that and they use to say, watch dad to see if its time to get scared yet, if anything was going on.
When Little Esther was near death she looked me in the eye and said "I won't get scared about dying unless I see you get scared", so I had to stay strong for her all the way to the end.
So if someone says you are so strong during this journey than take it as a complement because I know how I really felt inside and how hard it is to be alone and heart sick over losing that wonderful soul that spent time with you...
