Thank you for your kind words Lisa. They do help. Staying connected with people helps in the grieving process. I'm also looking for a support group to help me. The memorial for my great niece and the comments made by her classmates and all those that loved her helped. Talking with my brother and sister-in-law who were her grandparents helped. But I think the biggest help is time. I had a very hard time with her death and it really got me down. And then we had the holidays without her. I really am looking for some coping tools to help. Crying helps too and there were times when I'd cry anywhere, in my car, in the supermarket, at my hairdressers. It would just come on. Talking really helps to but not many people I know want to talk about the death of a loved one. It's hard. Thank you for your kindness.
