My son just told me that he is thinking of not coming home for Thanksgiving. He is 30 and we lost his beloved Gramma a few weeks ago. Our family is dwindling and those who are still here are missing Gramma and Grandpa. Other relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins) are going else where... to their in-laws for the first time this year. The services for Gramma have not taken place yet, because of the hurricane. We are grieving and sad. We are thinking of running a 5K charity run and also going to a food kitchen to serve others. If anyone has other good ideas for how to handle holidays after loss of a loved one, please share your good experiences. Thank you.
