My heartfelt thanks

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has left me their condolences.  Its so much appreciated.  Its a very comforting thing to know that so many people on my flist want to take the time and say something.  Big hugs to all of you.

We're all trying to move forward, and figure out what to do next.  Especially when it comes to my niece.  We're just following her cues, and hoping to say and do the right things. 

Again, thanks to all of you that took the time to say a kind word (and in 2 cases, send me a pretty virtual gift).

I've been thinking about you lots the past few days. Again, I'm so sorry. *hugs* I'm glad your niece has such a wonderful aunt to help her through this devastating time, and I hope you're getting the support you need as well.

My family has definitely pulled together, and thats been a very good thing. For me and my sisters, keeping busy is what works best, and we've had no problems with that at all.

I think you are doing the right thing with your niece at this point. 13 is such a hard age, and to lose her mother at this time is so incredibly sad. It sounds like she has strong family support to help her cope. If you don't mind me offering some advice based on personal experience - you might want to eventually consider, or discuss with your brother-in-law, getting her some counseling time, even if it's just a few sessions.

I hope that you are coping as best as you can under the circumstances. *warm thoughts and hugs*

Its good advice, and my brother-in-law has already consulted with the school, and they advised that waiting, about, 3 weeks was the best idea. I'm not sure she's the type of kid that will go for that, but I think it would help.

This must be an incredibly hard week for all of you. I hope that as you take care of everyone else, you are also looking after yourself too. *hugs*

I'm doing fine. I'm crazy tired, but overall, I'm fine. It actually helps that I have so many other things to focus on.

Thanks. We're all starting to get back into our regular routines, but I think we'll be making some big changes in our lives.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Sorry I haven't commented sooner--it's hard to know what to say. My thoughts are with you and your family.
