100th post

My posts lately have been very, very sad. I haven't been thinking about much other than Leah so its been hard to even come up with anything to write. You're words and thoughts meant so much to me though and I want to thank all of you for them. Leah passed away Friday night with her family. We don't know when the funeral will be but I imagine it will be in a few days.

My brother is impossible to read. He seems mostly normal but you can tell that there is this massive amount of anger, just under the surface. Im worried about him and I really think he should go up north with my parents when they move now after the funeral. I don't know how he can continue with his normal life with all of that emotion that is so obviously there. My heart goes out to him.

My family decided to go ahead with our Christmas party that we had originally planned for today. We cancelled it when my parents changed their moving plans so that they could make the stop to see Leah in Montreal. There was certainly a sad note to it all but we were able to get together one last time and enjoy each other's company. My camera was dying so I don't have many pictures myself, but my SIL sent me a couple:

My mom and I

The kids and I

I can't believe she died. I am so, so sorry. What a terrible thing for everyone. How are your kids taking it?

You look really pretty in the pictures!

This is such a mixed comment I'm about to leave:

1) I'm so sorry Leah died.

2) Those are GREAT photos!

My sympathies to the family.

I love seeing the photos of you with your family. It's a great time of year (even with the sadness).

I am so sorry for the heartack your family and your brother are going through right now with the loss of Leah. I hope your brother was able to say goodbye.

Congrats on the 100th post! That's exciting!
