    My sister and I are trying to deal with my dad's grief, and it has affected our grieving process. My sister lives by my dad, so, she gets the brunt of it, but we feel that he is starting to drag us way down, and tries to appropriate our grief. We were very close to my mom, and we understand they were happily married for almost forty years, but it is getting rather difficult. We are 31! This is ruining my marriage as my husband reacts differently to things like this, and he is tired of me grieving.. Just venting today-- the holidays are going to be the worst. :(

    My mom died from uterine cancer five months ago yesterday... I am 31 years old... my dad is a 60 year old widow... does not seem fair-- all that my mom has gone through and watching her fight this, but life is not very judicial, right?

      I am so very sorry for your loss. Unfortunately cancer doesn't play fair. Welcome to What's Next. There are a lot of good people here -- folks like me who are still fighting; people like you who have lost someone or are caring for a loved one; and, of course, survivors. I'm so sorry you can't count your mom in that last group. You'll find the people here are very supportive and sympathetic. I hope you find what you need or at least what is helpful here.

    Apparently, I cannot think straight today-- my dad is a widower... not a widow. Hmmm.
