Eleven days ago our family lost a beloved member. My sister lost her husband of 40 years.

 How doesn't really matter, just that he is gone and we grieve for him.

 I wonder how I can help her? Have I discovered any wisdom over the past 5 years of living without Gee that will help her deal with her loss? Sadly, I don't think so.

Grief is so personal, so internal, I can only be here to listen and offer an understanding shoulder. To help her towards her new "normal", knowing full well nothing will ever be the same agian.

She will find a strength inside her that she doesn't yet know she has. We are a hardy breed, my family, survivors.
