Some of you may already know that my family and former family have been dealing with quite a bit lately...the most recent being my ex father in law and his health. Sad to say, but he passed away Saturday morning. He had a tumor in his brain, and from what I was told, he had quit taking his medication for it. The tumor was discovered only two weeks ago and deemed to be inoperable. It was causing him to have many seizures and partial paralysis. I think he knew his time was near, even though he was only in his sixties. Please pray or send positive thoughts to the family, especially his beloved wife. She just lost her mother a month ago, and now this happens. I'm so worried about her. To make this a discussion, I would like to ask how some of you deal with such constant and seemingly never ending grief.

Actually, I have to admit that I've never been a person that has really been able to deal with grief very well and there have been times in our families lives when it seems like the grief is never going to end. But, eventually it does all come to an end and you start to feel a little bit better day to day. I will definitely send out my prayers and my positive thoughts for your family in their time of need.

I am so sorry. I'm finding it very difficult to get past some things I thought I was over. I'll be praying for you.

I've grieved deeply, almost depressed. Then I think realistically, that: - The past never to return. - Sadly doesn't solve the problem. - Sadly will remove all of the beautiful, eat well, sleep tight, good friends, beautiful scenery, etc. - Sad will bring many diseases. - I am not alone.

Katlady, I am so sorry for this loss. My deepest sympathy to you and your family and that of your in-laws. In times like this prayer, to me, is essential. God has a plan for all of us I believe. Your ex-MIL has a great burden to bear right now. Love and support for each other is all you can do. But remember, though loved ones are gone from this earth they live on in our hearts and our memories. Those are the places they will never die. And where we keep them close. I will pray for your family and I will pray for your ex-MIL to have the strength to bear this burden of loss.

I'm so sorry to hear that. I pray during such times and it certainly helps knowing that the Lord is by my side, helping me through it all. God speed.

I will definitely pray for you and your family. I understand that it seems never ending while we are going through it, however it does end. Just remember that God never gives us more than we can bear. Prayer always helped me, even if when I was going through difficult times I would question God and let him know that I was mad at him. And then just talk with God. Also talk to friends, and talk to other family members, because sometimes it just helps especially when you talk about good times that were had. When we lost our mother last September this helped a lot, talking about the good times and having a few laughs. Hope this helps some.
