From Janet –
I’m just starting the grieving process…my mom died last week. It was a very quick, 30 day battle with cancer.
I’m so sad about losing her…on this day, my mind is also focused on my friends and family who supported us and in some cases, just blew us away with food, flowers, notes, calls.
I’m also feeling very angry that some friends that I counted among my closest friends have done nothing to reach out…no simple post on the on line obituary, no email or card in the mail. I’m trying to stay focused on the positive, but I’m very angry with some people…
I’m tellng myself that I will go buy a stack of sympathy cards and I will always be the one to reach out to my friends — close and not so close — with a show of support. I will attend funerals whenever I can because it meant so much to me to have some people there….I always have been conscientious about funerals, but now I will redouble my efforts.
Is this a common feeling from people? I feel abandoned by certain friends and family.
