My mother-in-law has been gone for three years and my father-in-law for two and my wife still cries on mother's day and father's day. And it is usually the same on their birthdays. Even though I am not personally a crier, I think about my baby sister quite often and she has been gone for 21 years. Love is a strong bond that causes us to continue missing those we have loved and lost. There is no set time limit. We all react in the way our heart tells us. I often envy those of you who can have that emotional release.

Those who say such things are not trying to be cruel, though. They believe they are giving you good advise. Their intentions are good. They just don't understand that each of us grieves in his or her own way.

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but
it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.
