    Hello. I lost my mother, father, grandparents… my sisters and I are now estranged due to the stress. I have 2 children and a husband who is only recently starting to understand how devastating these losses have been for me. I’m surrounded by people who still have their parents and have outcasted me as the “Debbie Downer”. This rejection is very damaging to me as I try to find my new source of support. I haven’t had any for about 20 years. I could really use a non-secular person to offer me guidance and support. Thank you.
