    Default I should but I just can't

    My sons has been dating the same girl about 18 months. Her 38 year old aunt passed away. The visitation is tonight. I really should go to show my support for her and her mom but I just can't.

    Today would have been my brothers 39th birthday had he not died in September. Besides having a heck of a bad cold I am just absolutely miserable today on my brothers birthday. I can not believe how hard this day hit me. He was so excited to celebrate this birthday he never made it to because if all the 1's in 01/11/2011.

    I am having a plant delivered to their home this morning and do hope they understand . I dont know if I should explain or just let it go with sending my condolences with the card and plant being delivered.

    My sympathies are with you on this difficult day. Send the plant and card and explain later to your son's girlfriend. I am sure she will understand.

    Thanks you two. I hope they do. I'm sure my son will mention it when he goes. I feel bad letting him go alone after all it is hard for him also. I'm hoping my husband will go with him tonight.

    I have gone to ONE funeral since my late husband's 11yrs ago and that one was just last summer. It was still too hard, I wasn't able to stay for the entire thing. It will be a looooooooong time before I go to another one.

    Hugs I know what you mean! Sadly we had one shortly after my brothers for hubbys 48 year old cousin. I was a wreck because I cared for her and all her family and also because I was still grieving my brothers recent passing and knew just how they all felt.
