Family Bereavement

I usually do my best to respond to people who comment on the blog – most of the time I enjoy the conversations, most of the people commenting are lovely, insightful and enriching.

There’s been a death in the family, we think COVID-19 related (was pnumonia), and happened unexpectedly a few hours ago. RIP Mama.

I’m trying to get my head around it right now, I’m inexperienced with processing grief.

So, I don’t know which way it will go, sometimes I find blogging cathartic, or maybe I need to be away.

Hope you are safe, and stays that way.

  1. I am so sorry for your loss. Sometimes people don’t know exactly what to say when we’ve lost someone. I lost my five year old daughter, and I’ve found writing about her has helped. Please know you’re welcome to speak with me and you’re not alone.

  2. I’m just now catching up and I’m sorry I missed this. I’m so sorry to hear about this. Please know you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers!

  3. Take care of you, yours and catch all this love and best wishes with both hands. There’s a lot being thrown your way xx

  4. So sorry to hear this, Don. I pray that the Lord will surround you with His comforting presence through the days, weeks and months to come as you begin to process your grief in the best way for you. God bless you.

  5. Don, I am so heartbroken the loss of your Mom. It will take time to wrap your head around it, as you said. Just know you have many people who were so glad to see your return, and will be ready for the steam you’ll need to release during your new phase. And, to exist without someone whom you’re used to being there – that is definitely a new phase. I’ve done it many times. You have my prayers, Don.
