    Hi,

    My Mother-in-Law passed away yesterday, she suffered with Alzheimer's disease. She and my husband were very close, and this is so hard on him. But, we are so blessed that she went peacefully in her sleep.

    All the preparations, etc are so tiring on people with FM, as you all know. The family looks to me to get things done, and it's taking it's toll on my poor old body!

    I just wanted to ask you to remember us in your prayers.

    Your friend,

    Kinsie

    Please accept my condolences on the loss of your mother-in-law. It's a great loss to your family for sure. Others will have to help in the preparations, it can't all fall on your shoulders.

    Kinsie,

    My heart goes out to your family. I lost my Daddy in 2001 from Alzheimer's and I just lost my Mom in Feb.

    I will keep you all in my prayers and I would give you some words of encouragement but since I myself have not been able to cope with my parents death, I am not one that can tell you how to deal with it. Just try toreflect on all the good memories.

    God Be With You All,
    Grandma6

    My sincere condolences to you and your family.

    This is such a stressful time for a family. May you have the strength to help your husband through this time. I read in your bio that he also has health problems.

    Everyone will be looking to you for your guidance. May our prayers help you.

    I am so glad that your MIL when peacefully.


    Much love,

    Kinsie, I'm so very sorry to hear about your mother-in-law. Please be careful and don't overdo it during this week. It will be stressful and there will be lots to do, so take care of yourself.

    My dad died just 18 days ago. We live three hours away and we have done a lot of driving back and forth. I'm the only girl, and my brothers just don't "process" things the way females do or think of the same needs. My mom was of little help the week of the funeral (bless her heart, that was understandable and fine by me) so most of the funeral preparations fell on me, including food arrangements, out of town guest arrangements, even shopping for something for my mother to wear to the funeral! I spent the entire first day after Daddy died cleaning their house, because Mom was so worried about it with all of the company coming and going. I spent 9 hours scrubbing, dusting, mopping, even washing windows ... my brothers thought I was crazy but it made my mom feel better and that's all that mattered to me. It was exhausting, but I believe I got through it on pure adrenaline, and the overwhelming desire to do anything to help my mom get through it. I've definitely paid for it, FM-wise, since then ... please don't make the same mistake because I really wish I had asked for help myself. I've been physically miserable (and of course emotionally drained) since then.

    Again, my best to you and your family. You will be in my prayers during this difficult time.

    I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your mother-in-law. I am sure that the disease that took her was very hard on both you and your husband. Please try to have peace knowing she is now with God and will always be with you spiritually.

    I will pray for you and your family to have the strength to go through this difficult time. Losing a parent is very difficult, I lost my dad ten years ago and still miss him very much.

    Take care........consider the prayers sent.
