You know I'm sad to hear this news. But it's been a struggle for all of you for such a while now.

I hope your Mum is coping.

And you and your family.

We're grieving, too, Lissy. Not in quite the same way, though, as it was Tomas who left us. He was nearly twenty, though. Not bad, for a kitty. We have a new kitten, now, and he's really sweet, though a bit mental. ;)

Dunno what to say, darlin'. There really aren't the words.

Peace and real love coming, from me, though, for what little that might be worth.

Ta kitty

I thought I'd find it much harder than I have so far.
of course there are moments, but I feel quite at peace with it all.
probably because he's not been dad for a long time

It might seem harsh... But, we all felt quite a bit of relief, when Jane's ma died. As much for her, as for us. Same with Tomas, to a degree, coz he was having a hard time of it, poor lad.

How is your mum Lisa?
Mine was a bit in shock when my dad passed. I think there was also a sense of relief from the worry and strain.
My mum survived him by 18yrs of comfortable, happy years. We became very protective of her. She had hidden far too much worry from us. It was her time to live. I hope your mum finds some peace and also gets to live her life xx

She's defo still cut herself off from it.
She's exhausted and trying to keep busy sorting out all his stuff, he was a hoarder.
they are on recycling bag 6 of old paperwork.

The funeral is on Friday, and I think that's when it will all come to a head.

I'm dreading it, not that anyone looks forward to funerals.

Was up there today reading through all his creative writing, trying to find stuff to use in the funeral. Also sorting more of the funeral stuff out.

I don't think we'll get 18 years now with her, but hopefully she'll have a few to live a bit more.
my bro still lives at home so she's not alone

One of his many songs.

It speaks volumes that I have no photos of him and my youngest who is 10.

Noticed last night
