Trina you've communicated your feelings so beautifully - I especially love the 'Scrapbook Journalling' reference because at the end of the day, that is what it is all about! So sorry for your families loss xx

Cherie Cawdron

A difficult piece to write and you have shown lovely compassion. Sorry for your families loss, as we all age we know it brings these moments closer, but there is never a good time for them to happen. Lovely to hear you reflecting on your scrapbooking and journaling too. We all love the 'fufu' but it is nice to remember why we are making our scrapbooks. Keeping the moments alive in our memories.

Beautifully said Trina - our thoughts are with you all.


My heart and prayers are with you and your family. Your daughter is very wise. You miss your loved one when they aren't where they usually are. Everything changes, yet everything is the same. I lost my Mom in 2001 and my Dad in 2007. I miss them everywhere and every day, just differently. The big part of grief is gone, most of the time, but I still occasionally think I should call Mom. And my Dad lived with us the last 5 years of his life. Even tho I felt his absence more than my Mom, I was happy for him because he was very ill and couldn't enjoy a piece of his fav. chocolate cake, so he was ready and we wanted him not to be in pain anymore. But nothing can prepare you for your feeling of loss. And there is always the "first" without them. Faithful, prayerful hugs sent daily.

That was a lovely and tenderhearted story of a very important member of your family. Thank you
