My mother has not spoken about or asked about my father since he passed away. She has her own health issues and that occupies her day. She used to be his caregiver and was always on top of his care. She claims that I was closer to my father than I am to her. I think my father needed extra attention because his needs were greater than hers. Perhaps my mother is grieving in her own way, but to me it appears that she doesn't give him one thought. Has anyone had such an experience?
