One Week + One Month

My dear father died last Sunday, May 7.  Lung cancer finally released him from the constraints of dementia after 12 years of mental pain and frustration. The past few months he prayed every day to die and his prayers were finally answered. His death came exactly one month after my dear mother died on April 7, also from cancer.  I'm their only child and have cared for them in their home for the past year without help and while working 32 hours per week from home.  I am grateful for the time we had together.  No regrets. I'm glad they are at peace and I was able to help.

I'm exhausted emotionally and physically.  So very sad and weary.  Double dose of grief seems too much for me to handle today.

Sending love and hugs to you Jewel. No one should have to endure that kind of loss so close together.  I pray you find peace.
