Word cannot say the love I am sending your way.  I am so sad Joe passed away.  May his soul find peace and happiness and may you feel his love in your life as you try to pick up the pieces.

Sara, I dont know the right words to say at times like this but i just went to my friends mom rosary and i heard them say something that comforted me, i believe it went something like this:  Sadness endures the night for the morning will bring joy and a new day.  I hope you are able to find that joy soon, i know it is hard but we need to celebrate the time you had with him and be thankful for that time.  God Bless you girlfriend and whatever you do, keep your faith and always always ALWAYS remember, we are here for you, we love ya girlfriend, thank you for sharing him with us, he will be missed by us all  :grouphug;

Thank you everyone for your kind messages.  It helps to come here and read them.  I have thoughts that keep running through my head, such as, why didn't I cook him dinner last night?  Why didn't I wake up earlier?  Why did I yell at him the other day?  One thing I can be thankful for is the last thing we said to each other was I love you.  Still in the middle of making funeral plans.  His mom is driving me crazy with all sorts of stupid questions and calling up the funeral home demanding an autopsy.  Her way of grieving I guess.  Another thing I feel a little guilty about is he didn't really want a viewing but his family really, really wants one, and ultimately I know he'd want his family to have the closure they need, so I hope that makes up for it.  Plus I'm going to dress him in his favorite Gators jersey, so I think he'd like that.

Everyone please go and kiss your loved ones.  Tell them you love them.  Don't wait.

Hang in there, Sara.   :grouphug; 

Maybe you could do a private family viewing, and then have a closed casket for the rest of the visitors?  It might be a good compromise.  We've done that in my family before.

I'm so sorry he's gone.

Sara so sorry to hear about your loss.  Remember all the good times you had together and that you loved each other.  I (we) never go to sleep without a kiss and saying I love you.  I can only imagine how you must be feeling. :cuddle;
