Cruzer, will they postpone the memorial service until your mom can be there? If your dad (or mom) can't make it, get someone to video tape it for you. They can send a short personal memory/message for someone to read during the service as well. I found it very healing to write a message for my brother's funeral even though I was there for it.



I believe that we are going to video tape it for my dad. Sadly, I cried more for my first puppy than I have for my dad or grandfather. It still kills me to think about that dog.

Right now you are coping. You've got things you're doing and that you know need to be done. I'm like that. I warn people that when there's a crisis (like my brother dying), I get very analytical and take care of what needs to be done. I get very focused. Then later, it comes crashing in.

There will come a time when you'll let it go.

Maybe. It never happened for my grandmother on my dad's side.

Well, he might be a better candidate for it than you are. You seem to have a long-term case. You think it's a generation thing? They really taped those Man Cards on firmly when you were younger. Now they want men to become more "in touch" so they have a removable Man Card.

For some reason, and I'm probably alone in this, but I really like Daj's current sig. That girl just cracks me up. I don't understand why, but it does.

I didn't cry at my moms funeral...altho I did cry when my brother called to let me know she was gone.

with my mom I felt that she was finally at peace and where she had wanted to be ever since my dad died...with him and the daughter she lost. That was a long 18 years for her after my dad died.....a long 18 years for everyone.....

I was debating. I h a t e to hit a guy when he's down. On the other hand, I couldn't let you get away with talking about your mother like that. And I'll bet if we somehow passed that remark on to her, she'd smack you, too.

If it was deliberate, to get a rise out of us, then that's okay. If it wasn't....

I am not a crier either. Orc had to teach me to cry to let stuff out. It's easier now, but still largely a conscious decision. You can let it out without crying, but for some reason the tears method is easier. If I don't have a task to do, I don't mind being the shoulder for others to cry on.
