    Sherry,
    was very sorry to hear this - cancer can be so brutal. I'm posting a link to a speech by Joe Biden to military families who had suffered a loss. As you probably know, Biden's first wife and young daughter were killed in a car accident, so this man knows about deep grief.
    It's long, but I found it very moving, and I hope it might help you in even the smallest way today:

    Take care of yourself and let us know how you're doing.

    My condolences, Sherry.

    Wow, a lot to cope with. My deepest sympathy for your loss.

    I am so so sorry for your loss. As other's have said, take all the time for everything and anything that you need/want. As for the ashes (or anything else for that matter!), you don't need to "do" anything until you are ready and you will know when you are ready! Hugs to you!

    Dear Sherry...please know we all care. I do understand what you are going through it has been 8 months now for me.
    As someone else said cancer is brutal, it will take you time. Everyone told me this; and at first I thought they were all nuts.
    I would never understand or get past it. But, I am only now really getting better and there are still bad days.
    Take care of yourself and do what feels right for you.
