I was with my bereavement support guy yesterday morning, and one of the things that came up was the difficulty of how to sign off birthday cards for relatives and friends.
Do I mention Littlegirl in the card, or leave her name out? It’s a difficult call as on the one hand I don’t want to deny her her place in the family, but on the other I’m wondering will her name on the card ‘spook’ the recipient.
Bereavement guy had a suggestion that I think is pretty good. He suggested that I sign the car as being from Irishdad, Irishmam, Littleboy and remembering Littlegirl.
I think that this is a compromise that might work for me. She has a place on the card and in our thoughts. We are saying that we haven’t forgotten her. And we won’t.
We’ve had a very welcome indian summer over the last few days, here are some of the good and not so good things to be seen near our home.
