Oh RJ I’m with the rest of the crew here in offering my condolences. Thank you for sharing your experience and perspective with us.

To the extent you are able please let your dad know that anything he’s feeling or remembering or otherwise dealing with is normal. My mom died early Jan 2014 and my dad still thinks about her final days and what she went through because of ovarian cancer. I do, too, and was fortunate to also be with her at that time.

Circumstances are always different but my point here is that these are the days we look back on and wonder how we ALL made it through — or beyond — to handle life (and death) one day at a time. We’re here if you need us.

My deepest sympathies.
Rest in Peace to your mother.
But I wish those who now live without her peace as well. I lost my mother 13 years ago last week, and it still hurts. As far as I can tell it never stops hurting, but you get used to the hurt.

I've read and shared this by Anne Lamott. It has helped me. I hope it helps you. Perhaps share with your loved ones as well.

“You will lose someone you can’t live without,and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly—that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp.”

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

Condolences on your loss. It's good you got the new house settled before it all hit the fan. You'll need some time to process all you grief and turmoil and it would be better if you didn't have to deal with major issues for the foreseeable future.

Sorry to hear of your loss, RJ. The loss of a beloved parent is one of the most shattering moments in life, and especially when as a family you have never suffered a similar loss. Old grandparents', old family friends' deaths are almost expected, but parents often seem invincible and seem like they can live forever. Alas, none of us does!

The very love and memory of her that you hold only indicates how good of a woman she was and tell us how acute must be your and your Dad's suffering at her loss. Comfort each other now! Only time can help to ease the pain later. A long, long time!

An aged adult who knows what you're going through.

I'm so sorry for your loss!

Do make sure you and your family keep dad close, he will really need the support, and lean on your partner to help you get through this. Sounds like you have a close-knit family, that is a blessing in and of itself.

The sorrow of loss may never truly leave you as there may always be moments when you wish your beloved parent were with you to share some experience… but live on in your memories they will and strengthen you in challenging times.

I am sorry for your loss but glad of your many happy memories and that your mother was able to share that love before her passing. Your mourning will pass in its own time - don’t feel like you need to “get over it” but do indulge in yourself in honor of a mother that cared deeply for you.

Hang in there to you and all those grieving the loss of loved ones in these times.

So sorry for your loss.

I was a real mama's boy & even though the lengthy nature of her terminal illness gave us more time together than most get there's still a hole there in my soul.

I'm so sorry for your loss. It is my belief that the person we become because of interactions with someone else allows that person to live on forever.
