I lost my Grandma Billie Silk Guinn on January 1st 1975. EVERY New Year's Eve is spent in trepidation. Then on April 9. 2010 I lost my only child, my reason for living, Candace Rae Watson. Candace was raising 3 little girl's all under 10, when she made the fatefull mistake of taking pills when she had been drinking beer. Now 2 days live in infamy for me. I wish i could be with them when i go to sleep.

Missing you Dad "New Year 2013"

Comment by Tracy Dingwall on December 24, 2012 at 10:44pm

Struggling to put the smile on for the kids today.  So happy to see their joy and excitement about the pending visit from Santa, but cannot help but feel the immense hole in my heart tonight.  So many wonderful memories but they bring tears to my eyes.  Is it wrong to wish for the holiday to be over?

That is awful, Paula.  I'm so sorry to hear about your family.  I'm sure that many of us will be relieved when these holidays come and go.

I Lost My Mom in 1990 and My only Brother in 1994 and then My Dad on Dec. 7th. Now There is just myself and no other family. So Lonely, especially at this time of year.

I'm sorry, Paula, for your loss of your Dad.  I lost mine suddenly and unexpectedly on Oct. 30th.  I miss him terribly.  Like others have said, holidays are horrendous.  I try to focus on being positive about other things, as that is what my father would want.  Every time I cry, I hear him saying "Just stop it already...It's enough."  That was how he was.  I hope that time will heal.  At least I know there are many of us out there, all in the same sad boat.
