My Mom has been gone for 15mos. It has been a completely davastating year for Dad and my siblings. Mom was everything to all of us and she has been terribly missed. My Dad went to Florida to see his brother for a month in February. It was a great break for him to get away and since he has been my sidekick since Mom has passed...it was a good break for me and the Hubby as well. He met a nice lady down their that was a friend of my Aunt & Uncle and they kind of hit it off. She lost her husband about 3 mos. before my Mom and they take great comfort in talking about their loss. I know that my Dad likes her and I believe she likes him too. Dad has invited her to come out this summer in August for a couple of weeks to visit. It is so hard, because I see Dad acting like his old self again since she came along and that makes me thankful, but it is also hard to think of him with someone else other than my Mom. Is anyone else going through these feelings or has went through this? I want to be totally supportive of my Dad, because I don't want him to be alone for the rest of his life, but it makes me miss my Mom more then before. Does that make sense??

This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
