    He died peacefully last night. The long struggle is over for him.

    Jim and I are leaving town early this morning, and I will be gone for however long it takes. We now have to make sure Mom is OK and settled. She won't be moving, but she will have to adjust.

    Thank you each one for your prayers and support. I'm kind of numb right now, but I wanted you to know what's happened.

    Blessings to each of you and your families during this Christmas season.

    Love,
    Sue

    My heart goes out to you Sue.

    I have lost my mother and my sister and I know how much that hurt me. I can only imagine what you are feeling right now.

    Find time to grieve when you can until then be strong for your mom.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you. I lost my father 20 years ago and towards the end I finally accepted that he was going to go.

    With love, Sue.

    are with you. May the knowledge that he is no longer in pain bring you comfort. I know that is what kept me going when my parent's passed away. God Bless.

    my heart goes out to you. My best friend (Mom) passed on November 1st. Four of us were with her on the final leg of her life journey.

    Mom was a dynamo and compassionate human being. She lived with Alzheimer's for 10 years only to then be dxd with stage 4 liver and pancreatic cancer 3 weeks to the day before she passed on. I shared with this forum the obituary written for this wonderful earth angel.

    Take care of yourself.

    Love and hugs.

    too. I know it is hard. I hope you can find peace now.

    Take care of one another & remember it is ok to cry!!--I know you will want to be "strong" for your mom, but she may also need to see your grief too for her healing.

    I'm so sorry sweetie.. gosh we were just talking about where your dad lived yesterday! I lost my mom some years back and I know how much it hurts.. I went through the numbness too for a while which was a good thing as I had arrangements to make etc. Mom's ashes were scattered offshore from Capitola Beach.. There is a good grievence counselor at the Aptos Hospice. It's right on Soquel Drive near the shopping center if your Mom needs help through this. It's going to be an adjustment for all of you. I know in Mom's case I was so glad her struggle was over and that she could finally be at peace..You hang tough it's gonna be hard for a while.. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers..
    Love,
    Dona

    Words cannot express how sorry I am about your Dad's death. My prayers are with all of you. God be with you as you travel and as you travel the journey of grief.

    Many have suggested taking the time to grieve.. How right they are. It is a long journey. Gradually you will find your new normal. My heart goes out to your Mom. I have watched the changes in my Mom since Dad died in 2003. Like my parents, your parents were together for a long time. Mourning doesn't disappear in a few months

    Susie, we just talked about your Dad yesterday. You were right, he needed to see you before dying peacefully. How thankful I am you had that time with him.

    I am crying writing this. My heart goes out to each of you..

    Prayers and love,

    Kim
