I watched my sister die of breast cancer a year ago, which was tragic and heartbreaking. But her battle was long and I had time to (somewhat) adjust to the fact that we would lose her. My mother, a widow & retired nurse, was primary caregiver, and was wonderful, but losing a daughter was devastating. It had a profound effect on my entire family, but especially Mom who nearly had a breakdown. But she met a wonderful man, who also suffered the loss of a child. They fell in love and married October 2006. Three months later, my Mom died suddenly & unexpectedly. We are still not sure why. I am in complete shock and disbelief. We have not yet healed from my sister's death and now had to bury Mom. I am now without parents or my sister, who was my best friend. I am a single Mom of a 7-year old son, who will probably barely even remember any of them. I have never been so depressed in my life. Has anyone been through similar experience? How did you get through it? I'm struggling. I no longer care about anything but my son. And I'm so scared that something could happen to me.

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