I am so sorry you have this additional pain and grief after loosing your dad. Loss it seems can come in waves. I wish too that your friend had reached out to you. Sometimes severely depressed people don't tell anyone when they have exceeded their coping skills. I wish I could do something to ease your ache.
Loss has been in my life too, I know that heavy chest feeling. I am thinking of you right now and praying that you soon know peace. We are all here for you. I am just sorry that your pain was amplified by yet another loss. Please be good to yourself. I care. ginnie

Dear Steve,

'Good that you connected to your health care people earlier.

Signing the death certificate . . .. I do not know want to say . . .you are going to be ok. Keep going through the steps.

Can you share the names of the songs that you are listening to?

Dear Steve,

I am glad that you are talking to your health team, and let your brother in law know about your friend also. They can support you, or at least know that emotionally, you have been hit by not one, but several steam trains, all at once. i can't imagine signing one of my parents' death certificates. that is a black and white process, would leave me thinking in black and white.

it is wonderful that you are listening to music and it is helping you cope with the grief. keep doing what helps you. please share, if you would like to.

you are always on my mind.

I send you lots of love and comforthing thoughts.

Dear Steve,

I have been hoping to hear from you.

Hear are three songs. Willie Nelson has helped me a lot.

Judy Collins - Both Sides Now

Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hziG9Nr6KHU

Willie Nelson - Blue Skies
