    So far in my immediate family I've lost both grandmothers, an aunt and an uncle.

    Hang in there, Cassandra.

    My mother died (of brain and lung cancer) in late September of 2007, and that first Christmas was a tough one, despite my family (my sister, dad and me) being fairly pragmatic about things in general. Which is to say there's not a lot of moaning about things beyond our control.

    But I put together a video that the three of us watched in my parents' house (which my dad sold as quickly as he could because he couldn't handle being there alone), and we had one night where we cried and talked about her, and that was good.

    I don't think any of that helps you, but you'll figure out how best to deal with it, thought strong moments and weak ones.

    Sending positive vibes your way, Cassandra. Like stress said, don't feel like you need to act any certain way. When my wife lost her dad, it would hit her at big events as well as everyday little things. It gets a little easier with time, though.

    I hope it gets better Cass, and for your boss, too, Cam.

    Sorry to hear that Cassandra. My dad's condition has worsened in recent months - this was why I went home to Ireland last month. This holiday season is always tough for families enduring the illness of a loved one.

    Thinking of you and wishing you and Rowan all the best.
