So many say that is true and although I of course am sad to have lost so many I love so much, I enjoy remembering at Christmas all the past ones in family who are gone and I can laugh and smile, remembering. How does this holiday make you feel about loved one passed? Image by mama-knows.com

Such a shame and I do understand and I also can see that you do enjoy the memories of this friend. One of those circumstances where we "know" it should not have ended that way.

I am so very sorry. I lost my older brother many years ago. It seems only yesterday. The best you can do is just hang onto the best memories.
I agree Michael; these loved ones have done what we all must do and I would much rather remember their life than their death.
Me, too, Michael. Today our families are scattered all over the country, some all over the world, and it is too expensive for them to get together. We have to do the best we can, but we still have our warm memories.
Family was so much different back then; wasn't it MizB? I don't believe there could be anything today to equal it; people are just not the same.
Certainly Jackie...and even if we would like to remain "the same" then younger family members and relatives might regard us as if we have fallen from another planet ...
True Michael, times have just changed and we can try to hold onto past things but it does all depend on if the young people will allow it and appreciate it.
The difference that I see in my family is that the younger generations treasure their friends more than their families. Unfortunately, if one gets in trouble, it's family who come to be by their side. They learn who their true friends are.
Young people are so different today but I think a lot of it has to do with the parenting changes. It is like nothing is expected of them. A real disservice to them to raise them that way.
