    I'm sorry kalikatzaros. My husband died last year. It's hard to lose someone you've known for so many years --- especially kind relatives.

    I remember Jessy (MrsSantaClaus), I remember Maria, a friend of mine who passed away some months ago, I remember a friend who died some years ago, I remember my grandmother.

    This year we lost my Uncle Sean, my cousin Keith and my husband's Uncle Leonard. As always, we also thought of my Dad, my Father-in-law and my Brother-in-law. Unfortunately it's gotten to the point now, where we have lost so many - our 8 grandparents, 9 aunts and uncles and several dear friends -so sad to think about

    I lost my last remaining grandparent last week, my grandmother on my dad's side of the family. Wow, did she ever make Christmas special every year! Santa was always really good to me at her house. Until about 5 years ago, she would make all kinds of Christmas candy every year. And every year her Christmas meal would consist of ham, roast AND turkey, greed beans, corn, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, homemade rolls, and whatever else she could think of. She always overdid on the cooking, but that was just her nature. She wanted to make sure everyone was happy.
    A few hours after I got the call that she had passed away, it hit me that we'd never have another Christmas at Mamaw's house again. She will be sorely missed every day, but especially at Christmas.

    This Christmas we'll be remembering my Uncle Arnold who passed away earlier in the year. It is getting to the point, as you get older, that more have passed on than remain.

    A lot of people have been passing. It seems like I am seeing a Facebook post every week of someone losing a loved one. It's been that way for about a year. My poor Aunt was hit very hard. In less than a year she lost her husband (Christmas day!) her son, her brother (my dad) and her sister in law. I will be remembering my father who died last December 4th. Christmas 2014 I was really just going through the motions. Fortunately my father was never in to any holiday, so it isn't like I have any strong emotional Christmas memories associated with him. This year I plan to really do Christmas up right!

    Thanks for thinking of me! I'm already a member. I posted the Charlie Brown stamp link.
