It is with great sadness I am writing to let this amazing and supportive group know that my mom passed away last week. She was sick the week before and took a turn for the worse. She was admitted to the hospital and passed away with all her "kids" and my dad with her. My parents just had their 56 wedding anniversary.
I don't know what I would have done without this group over the last several years. It has been so helpful to me. Especially as I navigated new waters caring for my mom. And, dealing with less than helpful family members. I will vent a tiny bit and then stop... Two of my SIL who don't talk to me for reasons I have no idea about never even offered their condolences or said one word to me throughout all this. Even knowing how close I was to my mom. They attended the funeral service I organized and attended the mercy dinner without so much a word. I just think they a pure evil.
In closing, thank you for your thoughts, prayers, and support throughout this journey with my mom.
