    My deepest sympathy.

    My brother died of lung cancer so I'm more aware of your situation than I would have chosen to be.

    Know that she's closer to you now than when she resided here physically. Take a walk on the beach and think of the good times you've shared--she'll be there with you. Remember the good times and laughter you've shared, especially during the Christmas season. If the roles were reversed, you would not want her to remember you in any other way--so honor her memory.

    Be especially open and aware of "odd" and wonderful things that happen when least expected (a shooting star, a dolphin jumping, a beautiful and perfect shell), it's her way of letting you know she's with you.

    Happy Holidays.

    Shel.

    So sorry for your loss. I know exactly what you are going through as I lost a close friend as well on the 9th. It is definitely a struggle and even harder since it is so close to the holidays. My thoughts are with you!

    Thanks to all for the posts and the pms. We are having a nice Christmas, which I didn't think possible. All of our grands but one have been here and we are still picking up wrapping paper. The twins got me one of those chirping bird clocks and I may have to accidently drop it.!!

    We had a very good dinner and the dogs only snuck a few bites so maybe our day will be complete without one of them upchucking.

    God Bless all and our family's wishes for health and happiness.
