    I am so sorry for your loss. The death of someone still so young and full of life is just hard, hard, hard. And laughter is definitely the best band-aid around. I lost my father this past spring (and my blog has been as much about his care and decline, and the subsequent grieving process, as about my children) and even though he was very old, and took a very long time to complete his dying it was still tough.

    At his memorial service, after the moving stuff, we started telling funny stories about him and repeating his favorite jokes (he had been a funny, funny man) and this was such an important part of coping with our sense of loss and a way to feel still connected to him.

    Even though the roles had been reversed for some time, and I had been much more the parent to him than he to me for some years (he was 92), there are still moments when I want to tell “Daddy” about something and have to stop myself and remember he is gone.

    I know you are aware that this process of acclimating to your Aunt’s passing will take some time and that this first year, your year of firsts – first holidays, birthdays, etc without her,, when yon acutely feel her loss – will be the hardest. I am so glad you have some Looney Toon band-aids to help take a little edge off the pain.

    I’m sorry for your loss. My father passed away one month ago too. Your Uncle Peter’s comment about finding your aunt and saying it was time to go, was very touching. Its sad, may you all heal with time.

    So sorry for your loss. I think sometimes when we are standing on the precipice of grief or pain, humor, laughter, or the ridiculous can help pull us back just a bit…not away from the grief, pain, sadness, but nudge us off the very edge and keep us from falling off the cliff. I’m glad you at least have some Loony Toon Band Aids for some temporary, momentary healing.
