Oh my gosh, I’m so sorry. I was tearing up reading that. I’m sure your wedding next year will be a very happy day being able to remember her. Best wishes to you and your Fiance in moving forward with your grief.

I am so sorry to hear that. I have to believe that she will be there on your wedding day, watching over both of you. I don’t have any sage advice, just sending hugs your way so you know you aren’t alone. 🙂

Oh my gosh I am so sorry.

My heart goes out to you all .

It will be tough but remember how much she wanted you to be married and happy… 

My friend had a picture of her in law who had passed stuck on to her bouquet so she was with her throughout the whole wedding which was lovely.  

Thoughts are with you all x

mslyss:  Bee, I am so so sorry. I lost a parent over the winter holidays – I keep thinking how my dad won’t be there at my wedding. And know you did everything so FI’s mother could be likely to be there for your original wedding.

A couple of ideas – in your shoes I would know the pain for you, your Fiance and your Future Father-In-Law will subside some. When you have your wedding next year, perhaps incorporate some way to honor FI’s mom. Know that she would want you to have the most kick ass joyful wedding day and marriage with Fiance. One of my nieces said she believes my dad is watching over us from heaven. 

It does get better. big big hugs!

mslyss:  I just commented a moment ago and then accidentally flagged my own comment when I went to edit.

Just wanted to say I am so so sorry. It is normal to have grief over all of the aspects of this loss – you missing her , your Fiance missing her, her missing your wedding and your wedding having to be postponed. That is a lot of loss to cope with. It does get better somewhat coming from myself who lost my dad the day over Thsnksgiving,

My dad won’t be here on earth for my wedding either but one of my nieces says she is certain he is with us in spirit looking down on us from heaven. You know that FI’s mother knew you two are happy together and very committed which of course is the kind of thing that makes moms happy. You all were there for her physically in her last days. You did everything you could so she could presumably be at yr wedding. She passed away feeling everyone’s love.

You and your Fiance will help each other heal. And your wedding next year and your marriage will be sweet – maybe the wedding bittersweet a little but not painful like it is right now. HUGS

I am so sorry. Your Mother-In-Law is no longer suffering now, and she’ll be watching over you two when you do end up getting married.
