"In Repair" - John Mayer, 2006

Something tragic has happened in our family. Someone close to a family member ended her own life just over three weeks ago.

A million things have gone through my mind, during this time of repair. I hold John very close these days. I feel a long way from my birth country. Life seems more precious. I treasure what little family I have left.

But nothing will bring her back. And I mourn the loss of such a brave, tragic, and sensitive soul.

Now, I must begin writing here again. I believe it will help me to move on.

Writing has always been the best therapy for my mind and soul, Janet. It literally saved my sanity after Mama passed away. You are so much in my thoughts and prayers, dear friend. Keep writing! And not just blogs and Facebook posts. Maybe memoirs? You have led such an exciting life ~ and what a treasure it would be for your nieces. I have some of my Aunt Doris's journals, and I can't even begin to tell you how much I cherish them.

Janet, I've been thinking about you every day. I knew there was a sudden death in your family, but was afraid to ask about the circumstances. I am so, so sorry. In addition to grief there are so many other emotions to deal with, the confusion (anger, I know), and unanswered questions. Hugs to you and yours, you're in my thoughts daily, and I'm thankful you're on FB too!

Janet, I'm so sorry to hear that you are having to walk down this road. Where are the answers in a loss like that, and how does one wrap one's head and heart around it? I will be thinking about you and sending up prayers...

So sorry for your loss. One of the reasons I started blogging was because my dear Mother passed away last year. I don't know you, but I so feel for you. I too am an American married to a Brit, we live in Staffordshire. Sending you my sympathy.

My sincere condolences, the writing will be a great purge for you so please don't stop writing. I'm so sorry for such a tragic loss, but stay strong and keep their memory alive. You are a grand person, god bless you.

Somehow I missed this post. I'm late, but I know that grief doesn't stick to a schedule, so I'll comment anyway. I'm so sorry about your loss. There are few words to say that are the "right" words, but know that you are in my thoughts.

Came across your blog via Expatwomen, and stayed to read. This post is especially poignant - and extraodinarily dignified; a fitting tribute to someone brave and sensitive. I am so sorry for your loss, Janet, and send my best wishes.
