Vale Jim Iacuone

April 12, 1949 - April 9, 2008

My brother-in-law is at peace finally
and my poor little mother-in-law has just lost the last of her four children
I feel oddly dislocated and strange and sad and missing Marc. Losing his brother is another step in the finality of losing him. Only MIL left now.

Sympathy and hugs to you all, Susan.
Each family death brings back the grief for the others, doesn't it? Let the tears roll, don't hold them in.

I'm very late to this news... I'm so very sorry. How awful for your MIL - no parent should ever have to bury a child, let alone all of them :( And a difficult and sad time for you as well.
