I think jrnew was taught right - the grieving never ends.

I haven't lost my parents yet - but I have no idea how I'll handle that. I get teary thinking about it..

A few years ago my son lost his best friend at age 18. I was out of town at the time and could not get home for the memorial service. David always spent a lot of time at our house, and at times was like a 3rd son. About a month after he died I was still out of town.. (a LONG business trip) and was grocery shopping in Walmart. I turned a corner and saw a boy that looked just like David (at about age 12 NOT 18). Well I did lose it right there in Walmart in Butte, MT. I THANKFULLY hadn't gotten to the refridgerated and frozen section... I just said to one of the workers that I suddenly didn't feel well and had to leave.. and left my basket with her.. I held it together until I got to the car and cried the rest of the afternoon. The grief hit hard and heavy...

HUGS to you both Island Girl and Gina... and others who still grieve the loss of someone close..
