The world can be a cruel place.  I'm so sorry for both your losses.  Breathe. Drink water.  You (sadly) know the drill.  Please be gentle on yourself darling.

It gets worse.  I sent his sister a text and asked if it was OK if I attend the memorial service on Thursday.  She wrote back and said "I don't think that would be a good idea.  No."  I know this isn't what he would have wanted, but I will respect their wishes.

I'm sorry.  I don't know what I would do if I were you.  I'm sensing that you need something for you, too.  Is there a wake?  Could you make arrangements for a private time with him present?  Will there be an interment?  How can you remember him, perhaps with other people who knew the two of you together?  Letting go of our dreams is hard.  I don't know if you had hope for getting back together again, but you apparently loved him, even though there were challenges in your relationship and with his family.

Hugs, and keep breathing.

Life is short.  Love with all you've got.
