Trying to adapt, small steps…

Changed the phone contact from "Mom & Dad" to "Dad", substituted a song he likes for the ringtone. I still have messages saved so I can hear her voice. Not that I’ll ever forget it in this lifetime. 😞

Im sorry for your loss

This year marks 16 years since my dad committed suicide and 11 years since I lost my mama. Some days it feels like yesterday.
@LilPrincess I’m so sorry. 🥺

@bijouxbroussard my heart goes out to ya.
My mother-in-law, along with her other accomplishments, was a really great cook. After she passed away we put together and printed a cook book with a bunch of her favorite recipes and a bunch of family favorites. The whole thing is sprinkled with pics of food and pics of family. We made a big Word doc and used to print it. You might want to try something like that at some point.

This is so sad. I'm very sorry, my friend. 😞
@Rutterman Thank you. 🙏🏽
These are the hard days, dear friend. Reality sets in, everywhere but our hearts.

You will always miss her, but once the agony of loss lessens, you're in emotional rehab. Take those steps. Talking about her may help.

Tell us some stories about her.

It’s been years and I still haven’t deleted their number from my phone...

I'm sorry. It's hard. It hurts. There is a hole in your life now, because of the love you shared.

It took me the longest time to delete my parents phone number off my phone even though i knew they were no longer there.

Your Mom made a huge impact in your life that will never be replaced. You'll see her more in yourself than you realize.
@OverTheHill The funny thing is, I’ve always resembled her the most physically of the kids. About ten years ago, one of my sisters was staring at me and said, "when Mom goes, if I can’t be around you for awhile, please try and understand.”
Thursday when I met with Pop and the siblings, he looked at me and said, "you still look so much like her !" 🥺

Grief is difficult. Take things one step, and one day at a time. 🤗

I still have it as "Parents" even though my dad is no longer living. And I do have a bunch of messages of his saved.
