Last Friday, one year after my mother died, my father passed away. I am in complete shock, losing both my parents in one year is just too much to comprehend. I will continue blogging as I much need the distraction, but it might not be as frequent as normal. Take care and hug your loved ones.

  25. I am so sorry to hear your sad news. I know nothing will make you feel better, except time and the love of your husband and babies. One thing that helped me in my recent bereavement was ( no, I am not crazy) .. I would talk to the person I had lost. I just pretended they were still with me and talked to them. It just sort of felt comforting to still be able to talk to them .. and weep.. lots of weeping. Time helps … hold your loved ones close.

I hope everyone we loved is rest in peace. And surely, your parents would be well knowing you are ok. Good luck to you.
