    Thank-you DLM you too :santa:

    sorry to hear the bad news DLM.

    Sometimes Christmas can work the opposite way, help take minds off things.
    It can be a good thing for kids too depending on their age.
    Makes you appreciate what we have and also what we lost.

    My first christmas without my grandad this year (we were REALLY close and I helped nurse him right up until the end) and my godmother died on the 19th of november, funeral is tuesday. This christmas is going to be difficult

    What a bizarre thread...

    It's not Christmas.

    If someone close dies, it doesn't matter when it is, it's generally a sad occasion.

    sorry to hear about your friends loss

    however, i think anytime is hard to loose a loved one xmas or no xmas

    Hi sweetie, my sincere condolences to your friend and her family on the loss of their Grandad xxx

    I know Christmas can be hard on people who have lost family or friends close to them.... it's a reminder that it's down to the rest of us to show some thought and kindness to those who may be suffering difficulties throughout the season xx

    We're ALL dealing with something so spread a lil warmth and kindness around peeps xxxxx

    I agree....

    It's always a sad time.
    There have been quite a few deaths I have learned of lately and another is iminent, it's tragic, it's always tragic.
    I guess you feel helpless as there is nothing you can do. x

    My grandad died on 23rd of December when I was 11 and he was buried on Christmas Day.

    It never feels the same.

    never heard of a funeral on christmas day - must of been very strange

    DLM sad news. My now dear departed gran always said to me that the only guarantee in life - is death. Happy wee soul that she was - but we all should make the most of it and take nothing for granted

    It was very strange as they mixed it in with the Christmas service, it was in the Republic Of Ireland, they do things different over there, I guess.

    My friends is a he, he is 17 and has learning difficuties.

    Bless him, he knocked on my door and couldn't get his words out.

    I made him a cup of tea and said that it was ok to cry.

    I have sent his family a card, his grandad that has died was a lovely gentle man and came to the last haloween party.

    My heart goes out to his wife the most because she is also very sweet and still works even though she is elderly.

    I am sure the family will look after her because they are all lovely people x x
