Grief is a process, however it is not just for the loss of a special person.

There are many THINGs as well as people that we will need to go thru the grief process for in a life time.

A child for a lost toy, a high schooler for school upon graduation, the loss of coworkers upon changing jobs, and the list goes on.  Sometimes we just notice this process more than others.

Judy, you will need to go thru this process in leaving your home for a new one, you will go thru it as you or after you purge things.  Your mother will need to go thru it with your moving.

This is why kindness is so important as we know not where someone might be stuck in the process, even if to us the grief might have processed so quickly we didn't notice it.

Thanks so much Jo for your wise words.  I do appreciate your perspective.  I know have been through some great memories of so many wonderful quilting friends on this forum as I have found swap blocks not set and swap fabrics not yet used.  It has been a fun walk down memory lane!

  And DJ said he's looking forward to visiting from wherever he ends up and bringing his dog!! 

I heard yesterday that Huntsville was the best place to live in the U.S.  Maybe he should stay where he is?.
