I am so very sorry for the loss of your sweet precious Kara.
She is just precious in her pictures.
The beginning raw searing pain of new grief is just awful.
It is good that you have pictures and all of the wonderful memories in your head-
You will have those for always.
Grief is awful and there is nothing else like this pain.
I am divorced - when I was married I buried my son- at that time I became a Certified Grief Counselor- I used the same graveside service for my Bear as I did for my son.
Please know that when we lose someone we love we don't stop loving them -
LOVE NEVER DIES.
The soul bound connection that is between our babies and ourselves is forever.
Nothing - not death- tears -grief - or sadness will ever break the ties between us for those ties are made of LOVE so strong that NOTHING will ever sever those connections.
LOVE NEVER DIES.
When we grieve for those we love it is because we do not quite know how to live without them. We breathe because we have no choice but the living part takes a huge amount of learning and time.
Grief is not something we get over but something that we learn -slowly- over time- to incorporate into our lives until it becomes a part of us like our bones and our breath.
Please know that we all understand here and we are all here for you.
Please come back and tell us more about your life with your beautiful Kara so we can get to know her better through you. You can post more pictures also.
We are all in this together and all walking the same roller coaster path of grief together -
some a bit ahead of you, some by your side, and some will come behind for you to help along.
You Are In My Thoughts.
