  1. Thank you. My daughter died at age 30 at Christmas. This will be 4 years. I can’t stand any of it; the music, ads, lights, Santas, shopping. I go to our close friend’s home for dinner, so I don’t have to be involved in gift opening, and it’s wine time. They knew and loved her, so we talk about her. It’s music to hear her name spoken!
    I do give to charities, and remember there are several people living because she was an organ donor! I know their Christmas is happy and hope they think of the stranger who saved their lives 💔

  2. I Love Reading All The Post, My Husband Passed Away July 13th 2017 ,I Cannot Even Feel Christmas, I Just Want To Curl Up In Ball ,Till Its Over .

  3. Thank you for putting this all in one place! So helpful.
