My Father-in-Love(Law) is no more with us. He passed away peacefully on 17th of June. He was indeed a father to me and had always treated me as daughter. On my husband's side, they are three brothers. When any one asks about his children, my FIL used to reply he has 3 sons and 3 daughters.

Though he was not keeping well for the past two months, his passing away was the least expected. Till March, he was very active. From April, he developed various problems one after the other, which led to a month of hospitalisation. After a month in the hospital, when he was back home. We hoped, slowly he will get back to his normal routine. I think God just wanted to gave him the chance to spend few days at home before taking him to HIS abode. I was fortunate enough to be his side during the last moments. Even now I am not able to come in terms with his passing away. That is true for all our family members too. And Time is the best healer.

This is the reason, I was away from blogging from some time before and for the past few days. Now all ceremonies are over. Relatives have left. The rest of us at home are slowly getting back to routine.

  4. Jayasree, I am very sorry for your loss. I think it's really hard to deal with the passing of a loved one when it happens so suddenly. Take comfort in the fact that you were able to be with him in his final days. Take all the time you need before getting back, dear.
