Lainy, thanks for your advice. I'm right there with Adam...this really sucks. My dad is so lost right now. I'm a basket case, so I'm not real helpful. But I keep him out and about, since there is lots to do right now. I'm exhausted. It's only 8 here, and I'm ready for bed.
We spent lots of time looking through photos. I wanted to put some on the tables at the reception with the flowers. I thought that helped me quite a bit. I looked at all the pictures of my mom and said, "She really had a great life, perhaps too short, but she sure had fun." Then I realized I had 40 good years with my mom. A lot more than other people get the chance to have. Then today my dad and I went out, I saw women my moms age with their mothers and I couldn't take that.
Adam...I am sending you good thoughts for your and your children. I am so sorry you are having to go through this. She was much too young.
