Topic: my Uncle Richard

Richard passed away on May 11, only 5 days after being diagnosed with cholangiocarcinmoa. I had been taking him to doctor appointments and therapy appointments for the last two years because we knew he had some form of autism and we (the family) wanted to get him disability.  It's been a long two years but I thank God for the time we had together and often wish I had one more day.  I miss his terribly and still wait for Facebook messages or phone calls from him.  I know time will heal and its only be 3 weeks but the pain hasn't subsided a bit.  His memorial service is this weekend and while I look forward to seeing and spending time with our extended family I'm not ready to say goodbye.   :-(

Re: my Uncle Richard

Dearest smummy2, I am so very sorry to read about your Uncle Richard and you don't really have to say goodbye as I like to think of our loved ones being in the next room. The pain does ease up, it's like a flowing river that cannot stop entirely but it does ease up and your most fond memories seem to take over. Your Uncle Richard know how much he is loved and somehow we go on and we find happiness in talking about it as that is what our loved ones would want. Perhaps stars are not stars at all but rather openings in the sky where our loved ones shine down on us to let us know they are HAPPY!

So sorry to hear the news about your dear Uncle's passing, dear smummy2.  Know that with time, your pain will ease, but allow yourself to grief a wonderful person.  Know that you don't need to follow a time line for this process; it is unpredictable and personal, but eventually your memories become your treasures.  Don't hesitate from reaching out for help and know that we are here for you as well.

Dear SMummy2mo,

I am so sorry to read that Richard has passed.  Three weeks is such little time to start to comprehend it all.  I hope his memorial this weekend is all you want it to be for him. x
