Mother Passed Away

She was able to stay at home through her long illness.

It was a difficult ordeal due to the nature of her illness, but somehow we siblings managed to work out a care program in the home environment.


Thank goodness for organizations like Hospice.

Chinaco,
I am so sorry to hear you lost your mom. She was blessed to have a family that loved her so much and made her final days as comfortable as possible.

So sorry. I remember the feeling when I went through that. I felt like an orphan. Best wishes to you and family.

We lost MIL in January. Fortunately it was a short (3 months) decline. Now dealing with the estate, probate, relatives et al. Dismantling a life is the hardest part emotionally. We feel your pain chinaco!

Chinaco, no matter how much we are prepared it is always such a loss. It is wonderful that she was able to stay home throughout her illness.

My sincere condolences.

One of the worst days of my life was the day my mother died - I understand.

My deepest sympathies, Chinaco. And, yes, Hospice is a great organization.....they were here every step of the journey when my Dad was ill.

I know all too well about losing your mother. I lost mine January 3rd at the young age of 61.

Hang in there!
