1 year today

It was a year ago today that my FIL passes away. I miss him more and more everyday he is gone. My 5yr old said that she wants him to come back to earth so he can play with her, and be able to meet her baby sister. He missed my Baby by only 6 days. He died so sunddly that know one got to say goodbye. He missed two grand babies this year. My DD and my nephew who we found out was comeing 2 days after he passed.

I'm sorry Lizzy, I know it is rough. What your dd said is so sweet but sad. My dd wasn't old enough to remember her grandpa when he died and I was pg with ds. How is your dh? If you need to talk I am here.

I am sory for your loss. The first year is always the hardest. My grandfather died a year ago in November. He was very close to my kids. My 13 year old dsd will always remember him but my 2 kids then 4 and 5 will forget him. EWvery day I would say "what did you do with grandpa" and they would tell me. I tried to keep his memory alive but it is slowly fading away.

My dh holds things in alot. We he passed my dh would even cry or show that he was upset because I was 9 months pg and he didn't want to upset me and i end up in labor. My DD was born 6 days later. 2 days after the furnal. He wouldn't even leave me alone at the time. I got yelled at for crying. So one night I went to take a shower just cryed the hole time so he would not know. My FIL missed so much this passed year. The birth of two grandbabies for example. He loved his grandchildren so much.

Aww hugs I lost my mom 16 days before I had Peter. It is not a easy time to greve. I still want to run to the phone and call her and tell her what his new things he is doing. People keep telling me "she can see him" but that is not always help. HUGS
