You have my heartfelt sympathy and understanding. My Dad committed suicide too, when I was eight years of age. My<quoted text>
Thank you Grace! The "why" is the reason I think I can't let go. I knew the reason "why" for my mom, even knew that she would do it. There was no stopping her, even had her committed at one point but in CA a 3 day hold without a court order is the best you can do. By the time we could get that court order, she was gone. I don't dwell on my mom, like I said before, we all knew why. I don't know what I would do if something happened to one of my children or grandchildren so I understand her desire to be with him. My brother died June 1, 2005 and my mother killed herself 1 day prior to the two year anniversary of his death. May 31, 2007. I try to be in CA each year from May-June 11th.(my dads bday) I just can't bare the thought of him being alone on those days.
Chatty said to tell you hello!
youngest brother was 3 months old.
I had a dream one night, this a few years ago. I dreamt that my little brother met his Dad in Heaven for the first time since our Dad died. The following morning I learnt my Brother had died, he was 60 but it was unexpected.
So sorry for your losses DD and really good to see you in thye kitchen. I will be giving it a miss for a while....it's in good hands..
