its been about 3 years since I lost my mom but it still hits me at random times and the predictable ones (birthdays, anniversary of passing, etc.) Just wanted to post to say hi to the community and let you know that while it never stops hurting, you find life again and happiness. My heart goes out to all who are going through this but know that you will find out who your true friends are, you are stronger than you think, and that their memory will live on as you do!
Thank you so much for posting this! I can’t tell you how much it means to someone who’s recently lost a loved one. Right now I feel weak and broken but your post has given me hope that things will slowly get easier.
