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.

Thank you ALL! This group is amazing. I look at my dining room table full of cards and flowers from people who care and know what I went through and I need to just focus on all the positive. I have no regrets, I did everything I could. I'm not leaving this group by a long shot as I still have my dad to care for. While he is more independent than my mom was, he still has many needs that I help him with. Thank you!

My heart goes out to you at this sad time. And for what it's worth, many folks here can relate to your experience with the SILs. I have similar duds-in-law. The only acknowledge my household when they need something. My husband eats their sh*t with a spoon, so I'm always the bad guy. And they are permanently exempt from manners, respect and recipriocity. Whatever.

I wish you peace, and healing, and comfort in knowing you were there for your mom. I hope your love for her makes the poor treatment from others seem like small potatoes. I'm glad you had this site.
