Lost mom last night - 2 parents in 2 months

Last night mom took dad's arm and he lead her home.  After over 10 year of fighting this terrible disease, mom is no longer in any pain.  She went peacefully in her sleep, dressed and makeup done before she left the house.  She was a lady and as the saying goes, a lady knows when to leave.

lab--I am so sorry you are going through this. I lost my mom on 2/1 and I could not imagine losing my dad so soon after. I worry about it (and have thought it could be possible for the past decade because he was so devoted to her) but so far he seems to be fairing okay. (Mom had and Dad has AD so you never know what really is going on the mind.)


You are in my thoughts...may wonderful memories help you get through this difficult time.

Waiting for a cure

lab, how awful to lose both parents, and both within a short timeframe.  I pray you feel God's comforting care.

I like what you said about a lady knows when to leave, and about how your mom left as the lady she was.  I hope that one day, as you are healing, you can share special memories with us.  Your mom was special, and it's clear from your post how you love and admired her.

Wow - I am so very sorry.  That's a lot of grieve to process.  It sounds like you took some comfort in knowing how she left and where she is now.  And most especially, that the pain has ended for them both.  That's a huge hole in your life.  I hope you're taking special care of yourself now.  Long walks, comfort food, good friends, whatever helps you toward healing.  I find myself comparing how much of my traits I learned from my Mother.  Remembering the good influences.


Thinking of you -

Thank you.  Finally getting to grieve for them both.  I just miss them both so much.  Dad's was a shock New Years Eve - heart attack.  Mom's we had been expecting - but you are never ready.
