« on: April 12, 2013, 08:01:41 AM »
Hello everyone,

Two days ago we had our Mothers funeral , which was a good one. I am still in my dressing gown wondering if when I will ever get out off it , I am certain that most off you will understand.

I never thought my 92 year old Mothers 3 year decline would mirror so much the deaths in the 80,s early 90,s that I experienced, she thought against dying until her weakness could not cope with the pain killers and rest with eventual death finally occurred.

Feel full off emotion, which I am trying not to block , hopefull that eventually I will sleep just 8 hours a day sometime in the future.

I am hopeful that all off you are in fine fettle , I am pleased to be writting this hello to you all.

Having just lost my mother in February, I understand completely how you feel.

Please know you are in my thoughts. Losing a parent is a very difficult thing.

So sorry to hear of your mother's passing.

Hi Michael,

I'm so sorry to hear about your mother.  Losing a mother is especially hard, and I totally understand.  Stay in the gown as long as you need to. :-*

So sorry Michael, about your Mom.   Hope you can find comfort, knowing that she is at peace, and with all the wonderful memories you have.   Losing a beloved parent is never easy, even when you KNOW they are ill and close to death.

Many hugs,
