I am sending my condolences to all forum members who have lost family in the last few months. In sifting through some recent (and older) posts I have read about a mother or father who have passed.
I really wish that we could have an "In Memoriam" corner in the forum so that we do not miss reaching out to someone who has lost a parent or loved one.
Caregiving is so isolating and overwhelming, that losing someone special creates such an ubrupt end to all the chaos; and I think that it is just as hard to deal with.
Again, my heartfelt condolences and please feel free to post here if you have lost someone recently.

Our very dear friend, SecretSister lost her father on December 9th. She was a member here before I arrived and has been so generous to both me and others in offering her support and prayers.

My condolences on the passing of her dear Father.

Please drop by her wall:

We are friends and family here. Our reason for being on Aging Care is to support each other and share a common bond, which is often caring for end of life loved ones. I think the Memorium thread should be mainstreamed just as Breath of Fresh Air is, on every page as a place of honor and remembrance. Thank you, Lilli, for creating it. Heartfelt Condolences to my friend, Jamie.

Our good friend "CallMeIshmael" lost his grandmother last week.

I am sending him my sincerest condolences on his loss. As many of you know, he was a devoted caregiver to his grandmother, who lived to be 105 years old...due in great part to his care.

I send my blessings to all those who have lost a loved one in the last few months.

Piratess: I am so sorry for your loss. When did your Mom pass? My heart goes out to you. It is hard to be surrounded by her things and all that "quiet." I think we get caught up in all the activity of caregiving that we do not know what to do with all that empty time. Take some time away from your house. Can you take a trip or get together with friends? I hope you will eventually find some peace...Lilli

Thanks Lili for your condolences...it is hard to be on this site still after you have lost a loved one, it's hard to read the topics you went through all ready. It's tough knowing they are no longer there. I cry as well for my mom, and what makes it tougher is I moved into her house so am surrounded by all her things.

Ludi...oh so sorry for your loss.

I lost my best friend Sunday morning - mom. I will miss her. I feel like I should have done more. I feel guilty, hurt, sad. I miss her voice. My eyes are red from crying and my nose is sore from blowing it so much.

Ed, I agree. Most of us here have no one among our family and friends who either understands our role as caregiver or how incredibly draining it is, so we rely on each other here in the forum. When a parent passes, all the extended family goes back to their lives leaving the caregiver to deal with extreme grief and lonliness....and the feeling of "what do I do now."

I encourage our site managers to consider a special place where people can post the passing of a loved one and for others to send their condolences and offer support. And I encourage all who have lost a parent to stay here and share their wisdom with those of us who are still struggling with this journey.

And I agree, too, we are family...true family members do not turn their backs on you when you need them.

LILLI:

You're absolutely right. An "In Memoriam" corner would definitely fill a void that makes some of us isolate and fall off the map for months at a time. After all, WE are family and need to look out for one another.

Cargi: My most sincere condolences. I am so sorry for your double loss so close together. It is like slamming on your breaks...going from crazy busy to so quiet. I hope that time is the healer everyone says it is.
