Jill, I am so sorry for your loss. Yesss you will have tears and not just for the holidays. First birthdays, mothers day, any times that were special. I lost my mom over thirty years ago and I still have days when I am close to tears. Share with your family your feelings. I have 4 siblings, Each year on my mother's birthday we all take a personal day from work and spend it together remembering, and now we laugh a lot. We make sure to share pictures of her with our children and grandchildren. It has helped us all to remember how much she loved us and wanted us to look out for each other. Maybe you and your loved ones can start a tradition of remembering the good times and laugh about the not so good ones.
