I don't make it to this board often anymore, so I am sorry it's been so long with no replies. First, I am so sorry for your loss.
The important thing is to remember that everyone heals at a different pace. Just give your daughter lots of love, and comfort her during those times. My daughter was 9 when my Dad passed, and we went through that for about two years. There are still times that the smallest thing causes her to cry. She cannot watch the Disney move "JUMP IN" because she was watching it when my Dad passed. Just like there are times when it is more difficult for us, there will be times when it will be more difficult for her too. Just be patient and love her a lot.
for my new siggy!
