Mom passed about 1:45 this morning.

My two Sisters and I were here at the house with her when is left this earth to join our Daddy in Heaven. I'm sure they are having quiet the celebration. He passed three years ago from a six month battle with Leukemia. Mom was the love of his life. We kept her at home, just as he asked. She was placed on Hospice on June 23. Mom had dementia and stopped eating several months ago. She continued to drink a little up until a couple of days ago. Mom was one strong woman. This group has helped me to prepare for our loss. Thank you all.

Tmarie, I am sorry for your loss. It's so hard losing your mother. She left in peace knowing she was loved.
Sorry for you loss. This day it probably the hardest .. after the day of the funeral.

Take time for yourself. Be good to yourself.
Very sorry for your loss. I hope you have peace and comfort in the days ahead.
Tmarie, my heartfelt sympathy to you and your family. Knowing that Mom is now back with your Dad does put a smile on one's face.

That is how I viewed it when my Dad passed. Makes the grieving a bit easier.
Tmarie, I am sorry for your loss. Losing a mom is tough, I know. But you were there for her when it counted. I hope you can find peace in your memories of her and your dad.
God bless you and your sisters
Thank you all for your kind words and thoughts. I went today and fixed Mom's hair and nails as I have done every week for the last three years. My heart is aching but I know Mom is now painfree and in the arms of her forever sweetheart. The next two days will be difficult but bareable surrounded by family and loved ones. Much love to all that have provided guidance and advice while on this caretaker journey.
So sorry for your loss Tmarie :(
I am sorry for your loss. This is a good place for you to be in that it helps. I am sure it was difficult for you to help prepare your mom but nice you were able to help her one last time as you have done for so long.
