Gentlemen - anyone having difficulty dealing with holiday?
My dad passed 11 years and in the last year my mom started dating at 78. Just Sunday she cancelled Xmas at her house cuz she's going away with her man. I'm very happy with her and now I get to float about for Xmas. I do have a godson who is 2.5 and I can't wait to show up Xmas morning to shower him with ThomasThomas the Train gifts.

Vin:  I lost my Dad just a month ago.  We all saw it coming, perhaps myself more than any of the others in my immediate family.  He was 75 and had battled Diabetes for 45 years.  He did well compared with most other Diabetics that have long-term bouts with the disease, but in the end, it was his heart that finally gave out.  I miss him a great deal, but I am glad he is free of a body that gave him nothing but trouble and difficulty in his final years.  He could barely stand and walk, and my Mom was a full-time nurse and caretaker for him.  He passed away in the middle of the night with my Mom right next to him, peacefully, in his own home.  Perhaps the saddest part of his passing is that he loved my little girl so very much, and now he won't get to watch her grow up.  In a time like this, I take great comfort and solace in the teachings of my religion, which I whole-heartedly believe in and follow.  We believe that families are eternal and forever, and that we will be reunited with our deceased family members and friends when we too leave this mortal life.  Our existence on this Earth is temporary, but the spirit of man is eternal.  I firmly believe this, and look forward to seeing him again one day.  This is how I and my family are dealing with the loss of my Dad.  To us, he is not gone.  He still exists.  It's as though he walked into another room where we cannot yet follow.  Perhaps it is because I myself have a disability and understand well the frustrations of physical limitations that I find it a bit easier to let him go, because I know he's not dealing with that any more.  Beyond this, I don't know how else I can help you cope with your loss.  All I can tell you is how my family and I are handling it.  I hope this helps you in some way.

one of the hardest things with an online group like this is many of us never meet.   It may be good to meet in an inline group somewhere.  Where we can talk or find a way to communicate long distance that is cheap or free.
