      Wendi, I feel sad about your sister's loss. My daughters and I will pray for her and your whole family. There's time to grieve, there's time to heal.

      I lost my husband to prostate cancer 10 years ago. He was only 48 years old. My 2 daughters and I were devastated, but somehow with prayers from friends, we survived our grief. Your sister will surely come out from her loss in time, with HP friends' condolence and prayers.

    Wendi - I am praying for you, your sister and all of your family.  Losing those that we have built our lives around is more difficult than I can possibly describe.  Give yourselves some time, some space and above all understanding to reach out to unlikely sources.  I lost the love of my life on November 20th after 25 wonderful years.  It was sudden and I'm just now starting to get through the shock stage.  Blessings to you and all of those whose lives you touch...

    Thank you Bat and Adam.

    It's 3:15AM, and I'm up keeping her company right now.

    She's walking around her house trying to find where his presence is the strongest.

    Trying to convince her that his presence is in her heart...this is so hard to watch when you can't do much to ease the pain.

    My condolences. It's very hard to lose a loved one. When we do it's often hard for us to accept anything. If you find her trying to hold in her feelings please try to talk to her. I know that when it happened to my I shut myself off from the world and it made me very ill. We tend to hold in everything and years later it comes out, at that point it usually causes serious health problems and conflict. My heart goes out to you and yours and many thoughts and prayers.

    Thank you everyone.

    I finally got her to sleep, hopefully she'll stay that way for a couple of hours.  She's going to need her strength because now she's going to have deal with the bitterness (from one of his daughters in particular) for the fight over the fortune.,,which my sister wants no part of right now.

    She just wants him back!

    I am really sorry to here the news.  I have only just read your post.  Dealing with your feelings is extremely difficult at the time and unfortunately there are always people who seem to make the grieving process worse.  Talking from experience of losing my father at the age of 12 nearly 19years ago, time does heal, you never fully recover but it becomes easier to live with.  Encourage everyone to talk about the good times you had as a family, it helps the healing process.
    My thoughts go out to you and all your family at this sad time. x
