I love the thought of your grandparents taking care of their son with a life insurance policy. And this:
All the while, the grief for my mother waited patiently. Biding it's time, waiting for me to remember where I'd left it. Today's letter opened the door and invited it back in.is poetry. Are you writing this somewhere other than here? Will writing be a part of your healing?
(((NIK))) so many hugs for you.

Are you writing this somewhere other than here? Will writing be a part of your healing?Thank you, b4me. Writing is a major outlet for me. I do journal and have been working on a book for quite some time. I even tried my hand at blogging a few years back, although that foundered rather quickly.
Thank you everyone for the support.
You can call me NIK

Grief has a way of waiting for us doesn't it.....my Dad passed away 14 yrs ago and my Mum in January of this year....I don't think you can separate the two out....when I think of my Mum the pain of losing my Dad rushes in...they were together for so many years (married 50 yrs, dated for yrs before that) that they became almost one......
((NIK)) give yourself over to the tears, the memories and let it help you move forward.....HUGS

Think of the haters in your life as sandpaper; they’ll scratch you up time and time again but in the end you’re polished, smooth, and spotless..while they end up useless

Losing ones parents is a huge milestone in our life. Hold their memories close and let yourself mourn.
