I was overwhelmed with sadness and grief, but also relieved that it was over. My heart was full from the outpour of love and support from our family and friends, but I also felt a strange loneliness in my heart. It felt wonderful to have all that work done and all those items on my to-do lists were scratched off. I felt like a ton of bricks had been lifted off my shoulders. I felt proud that we did a good job of honoring Daddy at his service, and also both of our parents as we spread their ashes. At the same time though, I felt so tired, so incredibly sad and I was fearful I would fall into depression.
