Having lost many people in my lifetime and just in October losing my Mom, I still feel like this...
We can still enjoy our other family members and friends, but our lost loved ones are never forgotten. They will always be a treasured part of us and
our memories of them are precious. They are kept alive in our thoughts and in our hearts and it's ok to feel sorrow for such deep losses. There is so
much love, so many wonderful moments shared with them and it feels like they were ripped out of our lives and left a hole inside that no one else
could ever fill.
A lot has changed for many people. Things will never be the same again. Of course you feel sad. I feel sad too for my losses, sad that I couldn't
experience the holiday magic with my parents and others who have passed on. I feel sad that I can no longer hug them, hear their laughter or feel the
comfort and joy of their company. But I know that they are in a better place and that one day I too will journey there.
I know many ATS members have lost loved ones and love and miss them. You are not alone my friend.
