      We share in your sorrow.

      My brother had a heart attack on Christmas eve last year.

      He died two days later.

      I never got into the Christmas spirit in 2011.

In the past mine weren't so and neither were hers, but she tried again this year and they came out great so she'll now teach me. I'm so looking forward to it, the ones I bought on line were so so, nothing like the real homemade kind I guess.

      > So sorry for the loss of your dear dad. Your story is touching. My dad died on Christmas Eve '01 and had the beautiful Christmas decorations etc for his funeral.

      > Your story reminded me of my mom who died on Nov 20, 09 just shy of age 93. That fall she told me her sister was there and she didn't know why because Elisabeth had been dead for so long having died at age 17. Another time she said my grandmother who died in '76 was there visiting and again she didn't know why, and the same thing with one of her brothers. Days before her death she said that her mother, father, my dad and others who went before her were standing at the bottom of her bed and again she said she didn't know why they were all there. I assume she was near to passing and they were there to help her on her journey. To me it was a beautiful thing to hear even though it seemed to annoy my mom somewhat, as she really didn't want to leave her time on earth with those that loved her and she loved.
