STORYTELLER:

MY condolences to you and your family. My mother passed away 20 years ago.

Storyteller:

I will be flying from Los Angeles to Helena Montana this Wednesday morning to see my own mother for probably the last time. She has had increasing dementia, and when I call her, while she usually knows that it's me, her attention span doesn't last more than about 15 seconds. At least in my case I've had my dear mother for over 70 1/2 years, but have friends who lost theirs when they themselves were much younger, some even in their 30s. I hope you had yours for a very long time, and was happy to hear that her final days were surprisingly peaceful. I can only hope for the same for my own mother. Be strong.

Ron

I'm sorry to hear this, Storyteller. My mother died 23 years ago, and I've never felt emotional pain like that before or since. You just have to get through it.

condolences storyteller.
Difficult time. You cannot replace the memories of a mum or dad. But what you do is cherish them and in time you will be able to think fondly about them without so much pain. You will always miss them, of course, but take some comfort in the fact they are always close, keeping an eye on you.
As we grow up they are our universe and the ones who answer all our questions.
They are there all our lives and we know nothing else until they go.
Its only right that they leave a big hole in our lives.

Like warlock said, keep busy, book things up and give yourself social events and trips out to look forward to over the coming months.
it will get you through the tunnel.

Again, my thanks for all the condolences. Hearing other stories from you who have already gone through this comforts me. It reminds me that I am not the only one who has gone through, or will go through this. Life will continue and I must just take my time and let the natural course of things play out. There is just so much stress right now that it makes it difficult. I have less than two weeks to get enough money to pay the rent or I'm out. Due to how fast the end came, we (mom and I) were not prepared for all this. I just dished out 600 bucks to get the van fixed (again) plus the usual meds, electricity, gas, etc, etc bills.

Just once I wish things would go easier. The good end of all this is that my nephew wants me to come help him with the kids once he gets a new house. But that won't be for another month (or so). So I need to just get enough for next month's rent and I should be good.

Ron, my mom also had dementia. My heart and prayers go out to you.

riotengine, my condolences to you as well. You and Ron are also not alone.

Take care Storyteller and as comfort, think that she probably is in a better place now without illness and pain.

My condolences too, Storyteller. I've found that the only way you can deal with something like this is one day at a time.

Sorry for your loss, Storyteller.

My mother died around this time last year after a pretty distressing final few months, so I share your grief.

And Ron, sorry to hear about your mother as well. God Bless you both on your visit this week.

I'm adding my heartfelt condolences too, Storyteller. Give the grieving process all the time it takes. These things are never easy, but time will heal and you will be left with some lovely memories - which is, I'm sure, what your Mom would have wanted.

I am adding my condolences as well. Tall Guy's thoughts seem to make sense to me, apart from that I will refrain from any attempts of advice myself.

Sincere condolences....I lost my mum a little over 20 years ago, I still miss her and think about her every single day...thoughts are with you at a very difficult time.

After many years of pain and illness my mom has finally gone home to be with the Lord.

As this community has been quite dear to me for many reasons, I felt it important to share it with you all. I loved my mom dearly and miss her already.



My thoughts are with you. I lost my mom to Alzheimer's this past December, she passed 4 days before Christmas after being in Hospice for a week or so.

Her birthday is November 2, and we're planning a small memorial for her, as we never really had one when she passed.

I still miss her every day, the loss feel quite fresh...so my prayers and best wishes are with you, Storyteller
