My Darling Mother is gone

She held on for almost a week in Hospice care, but I am glad she finally let go, and her struggles are over.

I am so very sad right now, but so incredibly grateful to all of you for being here, for sharing your stories, your strengths and what you have learned, as I have walked this very difficult, and painful journey that is Dementia.

Bless you all! You are Angels on Earth.

Re: My Darling Mother is gone

Gaylec... I am so very sorry for your loss but celebrate for your Mom. Her battle with this disease is done. Now she can watch over you for she is an angel I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers for the comfort and peace that you seek. Give yourself time to grieve and know any emotion that you feel is right. Take care of yourself, do something special for yourself, and recover from all that you have been through on this journey with your Mom. You have done well!!

Love, deb

Re: My Darling Mother is gone

Hello

im so sorry to hear of the loss of your mother,my mother passted away also,sept 11 2011. This is one of the most horrible diesease there is.
We watched as my mom slowly went away,year after year. My mom went 8 days in hospice. It was up to me to decide on her care,those were the longest 8 days of my life. Telling her it was okay to go home now mom,we`ll be fine. I wish all of those whos loved ones suffer from this diease,strength,courage and faith,you are not alone.
Blessings of peace and comfort.

Re: My Darling Mother is gone

Hey Meg.
Was just thinking about you! Are you doing ok?
I bet you miss your mom, as much as I miss mine

dont miss the stress,,,but it is sad to not talk to her everyday

have you read the book "Heaven is for real:
it is comforting.


I see Deb's mom is still hanging on..quite a fighter.
so let us know how you are>

Hugs
Chris
