Sleeping, Reliving the Last Hours, and Dreaming.

Posted on January 2, 2010 at 2:39pm 1 Comment

My Mom died on Valentine's Day '09 and for about a month now, I'm reliving the last hours of her life, especially before I fall asleep.

I think I've already figured that out....it will never get easier, I will always miss her, and my job is really to figure out how to help my dad, my son, and myself find a new way to live and be happy without her physical presence....
