Like I posted in another thread, my Dad passed away in October. I'm trying to keep life here at home as normal as possible. I have four sisters and we are all going through the same thing. When we feel down, we call another sister. I have my moments, and cry at the drop of a hat! At the same time, since my Dad had been failing, if he were alive, then we would still worry about him. WE all find comfort knowing he is at peace now., and not suffering anymore. Also, I don't want to ruin the holiday for my wonderful husband and step sons. I know my Dad wouldn't want us to grieve for very long.
