I am getting thru each day kinda in a daze but have to be strong for my Dad too.....
He is so lost w/o Mom,and it is hard to have the roles totally reversed ya know
If not for my hubby and daughter ......and my HW family I would be a lost soul
I just have a wee bit of advice for all .......Let those you love know it every day as there will come a day when you no longer are able to tell them........God Bless .........Luv all ......Lyn

hope you guys are all well
