    My father in law passed away in his sleep last night. My mother in law found him gone this morning.
    I am so sad, as he was like a dad to me, having lost mine when I was 13.
    He was 88, and frail and seemed to have lost his will to live after his son died two months ago.
    I last saw him when we went to South Africa for my brother in law's funeral and we both knew that was the last time we'd see him but it still is a shock.
    My hubby is flying to South Africa again but we just cannot afford for me to go this time.
    It's been such a bad year for us. First my hubby lost his job, then his brother. Now his father. Things can only look up as they can't get much worse!
    SW is going to go by the wayside for now, I am afraid as it's the last thing on my mind at the moment. When I am stressed or sad I don't eat, so food is not my priority.
    I'll be back on track once I can clear my mind and soul of all the sadness and I'll be on the forum whenever I can to keep my mind occupied with positive thoughts.

    So sorry to hear your news Sonia, my thoughts are with you.

    No one else can really help,
    and words cannot begin,
    to take away the sadness
    that you're feeling deep within.
    And yet I want to let you know,
    although my words are few,
    your loved one will be missed
    and I am feeling sad with you.
