And Then

The family.. mostly sweet with a few nuts.

  the prospect of a loved one dying before their time is a concept that everyone has had a difficult time with. Ryan s aunts and uncles have always had a very close relationship. Their take on this situation has differed greatly from one to the other. Which is not surprising but it is jarring when their fears and weaknesses fall in my lap. Here am I getting  support with counselling and home care, where is the support for the extended family.  

While others in the family have simply chosen to look the other way and ignore the entire process. The closer relationships are straining under the stress.

How to say goodbye. it s not something that anyone can tell you how to do. It is a process that is gut wrenching yet liberating too. All things depend on attitude and how you let yourself embrace life.
