Suger mommy dating
While not relevant to all women, these are often defining events in their lives.
Even though the death was six years ago, it happened to you at a time before marriage and/or motherhood.
One way I think this is appropriate is to mention her in the wedding program and/or light a candle during a portion of the ceremony that names those who are “special to us but not here to share this day.” I have seen an acknowledgement of special friends and family who are deceased but remembered on this special day.
A paragraph, properly worded, could mention your mother’s role in raising you, making you who you are today, and how you wish she were here to share this occasion.
I’m getting married in a few months and I’m finding two things difficult: 1) going through a big life change, and the actual planning of the event, is making her loss feel much more at the forefront than I expected; 2) I’m struggling with marrying someone who didn’t know my mother and doesn’t understand (and honestly, not sure how he can, not being there) my grief.
My questions are: how do you help the new people in your life know the person you lost and understand the depth of your grief? Rita Bonchek, spent her career as a psychologist specializing in grief, loss, death, and dying. I decided to add my own take on it; that perspective appears after hers.
