My father-in-law died 6 days before Easter this year. The day was somber but quiet with no company but for my husband, it was much needed as he was with his Dad most of the last 4 months of his life.

My father-in-law died 6 days before Easter this year. The day was somber but quiet with no company but for my husband, it was much needed as he was with his Dad most of the last 4 months of his life. A lot of miles put on the van travelling from our house to the hospital or rehab. We have each other daily & for first holidays that we'll feel hardest. Other than missing him this Easter, the hardest part was not receiving that first morning phone call of holiday wishes.

It's very sad to have someone close to you pass, especially near a holiday. I hope you and your family will remember him with joy once the pain diminishes.

My dad passed away 4 years ago on Good Friday. Even though Good Friday falls on a different day each year it is still hard to celebrate Easter. It does get a little easier to deal with every year.

Sorry to hear about your loss. I didn't get to know my Mother & Father - in - law. They were both gone when my husband & I got married. His Mother died from cancer when he was only 18mo.old. His father died when he was 19yrs old. He was hit by a car as he was walking home from work by a drunk driver.
