So this is my first christmas without my grandfather. Yesterday I was in the car on the way home from someplace and all of a sudden it was as if I was back in that week he died. I was remembering the last time I saw him, where I was when I heard he passed...everything in great detail. It was so weird as twice in this week now I have realized he is gone. Maybe I never really had time to grieve before with my nephew passing that week as well. But it was tough last night as I really was missing him. I am not going to be with my family this Christmas as I am out of town but I still feel the loss. How do you deal with the first holiday without a loved one? Plus this is my first year trying to stay sober so I would really like any advice. Thanks

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
