    My partner's sons grandmother died on the 23rd, doing the buiral on wendsday. I hate this happened at this time of year, because I know it will always be marked by a sad time for them. We spent this Christmas apart from them and it was very lonly without them. We just talked on the phone and tried to help out, but from so far away I wonder if we did any good. One of the boys is "Mr Maxx "a member of this sight. He is the one I am building the cabin for. The other one is Barry, the one that comes up when he can to help out on the place. They are great men. Grandma Thacker will be missed.

    That's too bad. It's tough losing anyone, but around the Holidays I imagine it's worse. My mother was buried on Halloween 19 years ago, and I do think of her more around then.

    I lost one Granma on a Christmas Eve and the other on an Easter Sunday.
    After all these years we have forgotten the sorrow--------and think of them with fond memories.
    They will ALWAYS be with us on those Holidays!

    My mother died on Mothers Day and my dad died on Halloween-memories come flooding back around those times every year and they've both been gone for 26 and 23 yrs respectively.

    I'm sorry for your loss. :(

    I don't think those days are ever easy but when it's around a holiday it's even more difficult. I'm sorry for all of you, Sue.
