          Thanks westy but we went out today and bought each other gifts together.....all she wanted was perfume.....We get our enjoyment out of watching the kids open their gifts...It's just a real somber time this year.

                  hey

                  Booher, I just read this. Sorry you gotta go through a tough thing like that at Christmas time. My thoughts go out to ya. And I wanna say this about that to you. Boo, you got it in your power to be strong and I know you will, and here is the deal. Your challenge is to stop the grieving, after this season/year and make Christmas time a wonderful/happy holiday again, and a GOOD TIME TO HONOR THE MEMORY of your wife's beloved mom. You proably have already considered this, but it is YOU, dude, who is gonna be the prime motivator next year to make sure the holiday doesn't get transformed into a melancholy time for your wife, and so then by extension the family. I have seen this happen before, and a coincidental event/tragedy can derail people during that time of year for decades and longer. I know you will use yer head, and come up with a good way to celebrate the LIFE that is gone, helping yer wife to avoid the trap of despairing the passing itself, and thereby throwing a damper on Christmas year after year.
                  I know you got it in you to shape your families future for the good, and that is why you de be Big Daddy Cool! All them little critters are countin' on ya, man!

                  Thinking about it...you and your blessed wife both know deep down that the last thing her Ma would want is for you all to let it be a downer, you know she would rather you celebrate her life, rather than dwell on her passing. Same same with yer Grandma, dude! I do not mean to overstep my place, I am simply putting into words things you have vaguely thought of, but at this stage might not have uttered outright. And I am saying it for me, too man. To remind myself of the same responsibility. For those of us who are strong individuals, tragedy is an opportunity to overcome adversity. You and me, we aint no weak sisters! There are lots of others looking to us to lead by example. We do not have the luxury of breaking down. That is why you de be Big Daddy Cool, and you gonna do yer thang!

                    I'm so sorry to hear this. Last year I had a close family member pass away just before Christmas, and yes it is very tough.(I never really got in the spirit last year myself) As you said earlier, time heals, this year wasn't so bad, but you still get choked up, always in your memories.
                    Take Care.

                      Thank you guys........I know life goes on you just question some things after a death but I beleive that is a normal reaction...My wife is getting better, the family will be just fine.......I know that tragedy and death are part of life I just wish they would stop occuring during the holidays..Luckily the kids are too young to understand....I remember my uncle died when I was 5 and I was affected by it.......then again my other uncle died 2 years ago his name is jordan thus where I got my middle name jordan and my daughter got her name I named her jordan...But I thought it was important for her to be there so me and her went.......It's just tough times , My wife is the srongest person I know though so I'm sure in time she'll be fine.
