We are all saddened at this tremendous loss in our lives…in particular, my husband and I, who shared our home and daily care around the clock for him for the past few months of his life, find ourselves in a separate kind of mourning. The silence is deafening around here now….it's taken a week to realize, "what do we do with our time now?". And now we've moved into the "how quickly is this time moving on?" phase…it's been two weeks exactly today and yet if feels like yesterday and a year ago all at once. Sometimes I find myself jumping up to make sure he's okay and realize…oh wait, he's not here.
We still need to move forward and clear out the rest of his room…unfortunately his stinker of a cat remains, but the candle is lit every night for him still….I'm utterly and completely lost without his presence in my life…he was a tremendous part of our lives and he will be forever missed. He was my father in law, but treated me like his own daughter and loved me just as well.
