Mom passed away...

Started by

Mom died this past Tuesday. She passed peacefully in her sleep and we were there with her.
I remember the first time I came to this many questions, so scared, so guilty. Now the end has come and with all the great advice I got from you, I feel comfort in knowing that I did what was right for my mother. It has been very difficult, but I know that she is now in a better place and is no longer suffering. Thank you for all of your comments, suggestions, helpful hints and prayers. My love goes out to each of you who are struggling to do the right thing for your family members. Thank you all!!!

Abby, I'm so happy to hear that your Mom died peacefully in her sleep. My sympathy to you for your loss, but it's true....about her being in a better place now. I hope and pray a lot that my Mom will pass peacefully in her sleep. I know I would be devastated to lose her, but I fear how much worse things will become down the road, from reading on this site, and being aware of what lies ahead. I don't want my sweet Mom to suffer, as I know we all share this common feeling. Blessings to you Abby, you were a good daughter to your Mom, and can feel peace and comfort in that knowlege!
abby, I am glad your mother had a peaceful death. We were also able to achieve that for my MIL, and like you, really depended upon this site for information. Take care.
