The holiday season is a time meant for spending with friends and family. although for some people if not most there is that empty chair that sits in the living room. It’s hard to celebrate the holidays when you’ve lost someone so close to you. I know me personally when I lost both my grandpa’s it was hard for me. To this day I still feel like I’m going to go see them and they’ll be right there but I guess I’ll have to do my best to keep their memory alive.
Billie Lourd we all know is the daughter of the late and great Carrie Fisher and whose grandmother was Debbie Reynolds. We lost these two icons on December 27th and December 28th. Billy took to social media to share a heartfelt holiday message to those who have lost loved ones this year or any time.
“Happy holidays! (But also sad/emotional/weird/stressful holidays!) Sending my love to everyone who has lost someone they loved and is missing them a little extra today. I see you. It’s okay if everything ain’t all merry and bright. It can be a mix of all of it. And it’s all okay. Feel all the feelings – the good and the not so good. Eat something delish they used to love. Put on one of their favorite songs. Tell a story about them. Cry about them. Call one of their friends you haven’t talked to in a while. Be kind and patient with yourself. Don’t grieve in silence. You’re not alone,”
