Just wondering, how long does it take before the tears stop? It's been 18 months since I lost my hubby, Tom. Now here it is, getting near to the holiday season again & I'm getting that empty feeling again. Just came back from Kohl's & when I saw they had Christmas decorations up, the tears started again & I had to get out of the store. This will be the second Christmas without him & yet I can't wait till it's over. I try to be strong for my kids & grandkids, but it's so hard not to cry when tears are filling up in my eyes. Both my mom & dad died in Dec., one before Christmas & one after so it's been hard ever since. But always had Tom to pull me through when he put his arms around me & said "honey, it'll be okay". Now he's not here and I am having a hard time going on without his support.
