This is a truly beautiful site. I lost my mom almost a year ago. And when I lost her I realized that she was the cohesion that held our family together. Since the funeral most of my family has not spoken to me. So instead of losing one person, it feels like I've lost my whole family.
I know my family has a hard time talking about the lost and they prefer to just bottle it all up inside (the lost). But it is difficult to be so isolated from my family.
