It is nice to have the rest of the week off for bereavement but the reason is not so nice....My husband's sister died a week after my sister died. My sister died after 10 years in assisted living. His sister died after approximately 10 years of Alzheimer's and had just been moved to a nursing home this past summer. The feeling of the families of both of these losses is a combination of loss, yet relief as they both had finally lost any quality of life and our sisters had suffered enough, so we feel God was good in calling our sisters home, though it leaves a hole in our families.
I appreciate all the supportive sparkers who have sent me condolences and comments on my multiple blogs of late. It has helped me to feel less alone...thanks so much!!!
