Living my new normal

send me strength

  • Nikki, I am so very sorry to hear this news. I can't imagine how hard it must be to have to go back to the same funeral home. I am wishing you so much strength to get through this extremely difficult time. You were missed at SU and hope to see you next year. I will be thinking of you and of course, sending you virtual strength and hugs.


  • So sorry for the loss of your uncle. I'm also sorry you are facing such a difficult first. Prayers to comfort and ease this burden.



  • Nikki,

    I know you love your uncle and want to be there, but remember to be gentle with yourself.  Give yourself permission not to go, if it is too much.    Maybe give yourself permission to be upset with the fact that this place represents pain and loss for you.   Give yourself time to be upset in that space.  It's okay!   My father in law passed away 21 years ago and every family member since has had their funeral in the same funeral home. My mother in law has not gone to one of them. Everyone understands.   It's sometimes too hard to take our-self back to those places.  That's okay too!    Hugs to you and your family.    I pray that you find peace in the days to come!

  • Sending you mounds of strength and lots of hugs. I remember walking into the funeral home that cremated Arianna for us. It was for our friends daughters funeral no less. It was like a violent blow to the chest, but I managed to keep it together until we left. We will all be here to support you before, during, and after.

    Lots of hugs,


  • I am so very sorry to hear this. I had the same experience when my Ex's grandmother passed away, it was just passed the one year mark of her angelversary. Sending you prayers and strength.

    Love and Hugs


  • Oh dear friend.  Im sorry to hear the news of your uncles passing and that you will be facing added difficulties with it being at the same funeral home.  I can even imagine how hard this will be.  Please know I love you and if you need anything please let me know.  Sending love, hugs, and strength your way!

    Much Love


  • So sorry for your loss. I know about the anxiety, I get it every day I pass by the daycare room that started the fifths disease running through my family. It's hard not to remember the emotions that some places can bring out. Thinking of you and your family.
