I am so very sorry for your loss. It's difficult enough any time of year, but now around the holidays it seems magnified. Kudos to your Mom for doing what he wanted....
And hugs to you.
That is so hard. I'm sorry you are going through this.
I am so sorry for your loss.
2013 has been rough for so many, including you two.
I'm so, so sorry. Many hugs.
I'm sorry for your loss.
It may sound odd, but meditation helped me a lot with grief and despair. I went to a meditation group where you focused on your breathing for 30 minutes; cool breath in, warm breath out. Just giving myself a weekly break from thinking helped a lot when I felt like I might go crazy because I couldn't stand any more.
That's not a bad idea. I've been thinking about going to a yoga class, which might accomplish the same thing.
I'm so sorry for your loss, especially at this time of year. The 'numbness' is normal. It's good to hear that your Mom and sister were able to be there. Be sure to take care of yourself, good rest and good food and plenty of hugs from Ferrett and friends. Allow yourself to take in and feel all the love that's offered, whether it's LJ words or neighbors bringing cookies or friends sending cards. Take care.
Thank you. I am slammed with work through this weekend, so trying to get that done so I can just take the room to breathe.
You have my deepest condolences. Be kind to yourself in this difficult time.
oh my dear. *hug* I am so sorry for your loss, your mom's and your family's loss.

Thoughts and sympathy with you. Losing a father is hard. This is the first holiday season without mine. Blessed be.
So sorry to hear of your loss. I send all my good wishes to you and your family.
I am so sorry.You have good thoughts and prayers and a freezing hug from Idaho. The new year is a month away may you have a better 2014 than 2013.
I send you love and peace and strength. I wish I could help, or offer advice. You will be in my thoughts. <3
I wish you peace to your grief, love, whenever it can come.
In the meantime, I love you.
I'm very sorry for your loss.
Y'all have been through so much all for just one year. It's a testament to your strengths & support that you've both made it through it all.

There is nothing to be done, save offering condolences and support. So that is what I am offering.

I'm so sorry ... deaths when you're too far away just suck. I'm sending you Snoopy hugs, hoping they'll give you a smile through the tears.
If you're close with your Mom, you might want to ignore what she's saying and get on an airplane anyway. People get all funny about "you kids are so busy, I don't want to bother you" ... while inside, they're really hoping you'll care enough to value them first. Depends on your relationship, but just a thought to share.
Peace to his spirit, and comfort to you who mourn.
I cannot wait for 2013 to be over. It's been too painful for me and my friends.
My condolences to you and your family. I am relieved that you were surrounded by friends when you got the news. I also think it's beautiful that your mom wants to honor her husband in the way he requested.
My thoughts are with you....
Oh love, too much is too much. Sending thoughts of peace and calm to you.
I'm so sorry for your loss. *hugs to you*
